Didn't phone MNW about A Half Life of One after all. Although they've already had the mss for four days now it occurred to me that maybe one person alone couldn't take the decision to publish the book. I imagine that a whole raft of senior editorial directors will be poring over my masterpiece this weekend. That's good. The more people who are behind the book in Macmillan's the bigger the promotional budget it's likely to get.
If I don't hear from them on Monday am I'll give them a call in the afternoon to check out the form on signing the contract, the drinks party launch etc.
