Since posting that interview with Jane Bradley, I have mostly: started a new job on the Edinburgh Fringe Festival doing considerably longer hours than I’ve ever done before (72 last week – but I love it), written an entry for the Pictonaut challenge that I failed to actually post, neglected to write my August column for the Broughton Spurtle, failed to write any blog posts for Ten Tracks, kept a pinkie finger grip on Homespun stuff (we got a five star review from Fest magazine, woo hoo!), had a short story accepted for a podcast, and turned 27. It’s been a busy couple of weeks.
However, this post is really to tell you that the new job combined with further Homespun stuff essentially means things continue in this vein till the end of August. I had originally planned to do lots of posts about the Edinburgh International Book Festival, but I’m now unsure how much stuff I’ll actually be able to go to. However, I will do my very best to pop along when I can and those of you who follow me on Twitter will be the first to know if I actually manage it!
In the meantime, I will be posting an interview with Jen Newby (who wrote a guest post for me a few weeks back) tomorrow, and I’ll post July’s Pictonaut at the end of the week (the build up doesn’t really match the content, but nevermind). You can also read a post by me on Dorky Mum’s blog about the joys of putting together a Fringe show across a 400 mile distance, if you like.
Oh, and kindle owners – Beyond the Horizon, a book of short stories (one of which is mine) is now available electronically for the princely sum of £4.11. If you buy it, I get actual royalties – about 70p last quarter. So much for those stories about penniless authors, eh!
