It's four /five days before the launch of my first single author collection and nine days before a local launch. So what have I done? And would I do it again? How many books to order? Will I sell any? We'll see!
pdf files sent out for review - good so far.
Early March - contacted local radio stations. No certain outcome yet.
March - completed an interview by email with Ambrose Musiyiwa. http://conversationswithwriters.blogspot.com/
7th March - interview by The Chorley Guardian with an assurance it will be published the week before the launch. (Hope what they say is good!) Colleagues at work persuaded me to put some make-up on before I was photographed.
