Day One

Tuesday, 3 May 2016

The day has finally arrived, and my campaign for Sleeping with the Past has gone live on the Unbound website.

It's really happening!

Earlier, I was in the middle of a Q&A session on Twitter, batting away such questions as "What is your favourite cheese?" (crumbly Lancashire), "What was founded in 1953 by Chad Varah?" (The Samaritans), and "Do you know Peter Kay?" (sort of, he was a family friend when I was a youngster.) In the midst of pondering how to answer "Who is your favourite Chaser?" without offending any of my close colleagues, an email dropped into my inbox to let me know that Sleeping with the Past was about to go live.

And with that, my task switched from answering questions to asking them. One question in particular, as it happens: "Will you buy my book?"

Some of you already have! I'm delighted - thank you! You don't take much persuasion... however, I've got a lot more asking to do - if I can get used to how unnatural it feels...


You can help make this book happen. Please share it, and encourage your followers to share it, too.
