Following in Cut Short's footsteps...

This will be me tomorrow . . . on a train to Manchester Airport! Off on my holidays? Not exactly . . .
Tomorrow sees the start of the Curzon Group Airport Tour. Authors Matt Lynn, Richard Jay Parker, and I (yes, me!) will be signing copies of our thrillers from midday. When we finish, we're driving to East Midlands Airport for an overnight stay ready to start signing again at 5 am!!!
I'm feeling really guilty as I haven't posted here for such a long time, but I've been a whisker short of insanely busy. Bath, Bournemouth, Cambridge, Harrow, Hatch End, Hatfield, Henley, Central London, North London, London Colney, Pinner, Shepherds Bush, Uxbridge, Watford and after Manchester and East Midlands it's Brighton, York, Kenton, Heathrow T5, Richmond, Ruislip, Oxford, Ealing, St Albans - plus lots of local talks and signings. And then there are the festivals, and the radio interviews (yes, me on BBC Radio Bristol, BBC Radio Sussex, BBC Radio Solent - I have to go to BBC Studios!) Did I mention my interviews on the BBC ?
Other news - hot off the press - Cut Short has been selling so well that a reprint is in hand as I type this! New stock will be ready at the end of next week . . . but I won't be here to see the new books, I'll be in York, or is it Richmond . . . ?

Just need to get some sleep, Charles! And can't wait till I have time to visit around other people's blogs again.

Leigh Russell said...

Thanks, Rick. Yes, I want to enjoy the ride while it lasts.

An airport tour? What a brilliant idea! Hope you are enjoying yourself as much as possible. Sorry I haven't been round for a while, life has been rather hectic.

Debs said...

WOW, a reprint! Many congratulations, and well deserved too.

I loved your book and am thrilled, though not surprised, that it's doing so well. I bought my mother a copy, which is in Canada and then will be taken home to South Africa.

Great news. you really deserve to do well.
It must be fun getting to know other writers in the same genre. Is there friendly rivalry?

Leigh Russell said...

Yes, PI, there ws a lot of friendly rivalry, but only in a goodnatured way. If I was chatting to someone I thought might be interested in one of the other guys' books, I'd introduce them straight away. The rivalry was lighthearted, the support very serious.
