I know, I’ve been slacking this week, I normally post in the middle of the week and I haven’t. I don’t have any excuses as I could normally talk the hind legs off a horse or is it a donkey???!!! Either way I normally have some little anecdote to rant about but I have to admit, I’ve been a little boring this week and find I have nothing to neither rant about nor anything exciting to report. I’m still waiting for a final “Official” release date for the book, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be in April now!! Which is incredibly exciting and obviously I’ll let you guys know the moment I do and where to purchase from, (If you actually want to read it of course!!!) but I’ve been so busy in my day job this week that it has completely taken my mind off all the waiting and as I have the attention span of a small child this has actually been a good thing, the fact that I now have more grey hair however is completely irrelevant!! I’m still waiting for copies to be shipped to me so I can start sending my Press releases and if anybody has any ideas of media that you think would be interested in receiving one let me know I’ll add them to the list. I’m all out of possible marketing ideas to implement now as well so may result to my cats technique after all (See Day Of Rest)
I’ve actually been distracting myself with what spare time I’ve had this week with a new project, which is just as exciting right now but I won’t give you any details about it just yet. I feel like I’m cheating on my current project as we haven’t quite come to the end of our journey yet!!!
I have been thinking though, I need to surround myself with creative people, for example I could really do with having a good ol’ chat with an illustrator, I have some really good graphics ideas but I’m no graphic designer, in fact my artistic skills extend to stick men! I reckon I could probably teach myself with some fancy drawing/graphics/paint computer programme but oh my god, how expensive are they, WHY? Why is computer software so expensive? I’m not actually paying £800 for the programme, I’m paying £800 for the use of the brain of the person who designed it aren’t I. I’m so in the wrong profession if that’s the case!!! Or maybe I’ll just invest in one of those Dummies books, they must have something like, drawing for Dummies or become an amazing 21st century artist for Dummies or how to give up and employee someone to do it for you for Dummies!!! Maybe that can be my mission this weekend, to find out how to draw, that and Mother’s Day stuff! Watch this space if I’m brave enough I’ll post some practice runs!!!
