On Bank Holiday Monday go and do some super-market shopping for the launch. Catch up on e-mails etc. On Tuesday a friend helps me to take the books and soft drinks to John Murrays in Albemarle Street where the launch kicks off at 6.30pm. It goes really well I think – a great turnout of people – leave at about 9.30pm. Now more anxiety about waiting for further reviews. Somebody suggested that I should enter it for biography prizes – so will need to pursue that. Am slightly concerned about the vacuum that lies ahead! Send an A3 poster to the Broadway Bookshop where I am giving a talk on Wed May 21st at 6.45pm.
