Macmillan New Writing 3

Surprised not to hear from MNW after they've had the chance to read my book A Half Life of One over the weekend.

In the end, I've decided NOT to phone them. I think it's better to go down and visit them in person. They're bound to want a new publicity photo of me for a start (I'm much better looking than the photo on my blog makes me appear. Indeed, when the light strikes me in a certain way I'm almost handsome).

I can't make an appointment because I don't know right now which Easyjet flight I'll be taking. I don't foresee any problems if I simply turn up unannounced at reception tomorrow.

I'll let you know what they say after my visit.

  3. I'm taking a baseball bat, you don't think I'm stupid do you. Don't answer that, it's rhetorical

  4. Only prudent.

    Actually I have a novel idea--why not just grab one of the eds and throw her into a van? As soon as they sign off on the book, she can go, free as a bird. Don't know what made me thnk of it...

  5. er, JTA, I'm not admitting anything you understand, but in my experience such strategems have a habit of going badly wrong.

  6. PUNDY! don't go there tomorrow. Didn#t you read my post on Petona -- total exclusion zone 200 m round the place. Obviously this unexploded gas canister stuff is a mere rumour invented to get the police in to ensure you don't get near the place!
    doing a skint now (he who does not think I know any html, ha! ha! ha! hollow laughter) ===
    it is not the html that is the problem it is this silly blogger comment box thingy, here we go:
