Full steam ahead
Many, many thanks to all of you who have been pledging. Sorry I've been a bit quiet, but first we had the Black Hole of Christmas, and then we went to Costa Rica for a couple of weeks to look at birds with extraordinary plumage and ridiculous beaks and try not to tread on any scorpions or beautiful but lethal snakes.
It's great to have the book fully funded now. Sadly, we've now reached the limit on my dinner party invasions - there's only so much food I can eat. However, there's still the evening of salacious, partially-true gossip, and the launch party, which might include some of the above.
Publication on has been announced for the end of September, and I'm just embarking on a final draft, which is a very exciting feeling. I may possibly cut the slightly problematic chapter with the nun, the hoover and the warthog. Or at least make it more nuanced.
Many thanks once again,
