What do I try next?

I’m making a habit of this: typing my blog from under the covers! With good reason, this time, as I was out at a quiz on Wednesday with some friends and it’s taken a bit of recovery time (no…I don’t drink, so it wasn’t that). With our knowledge limited to obscure facts, we were amazed to find that, one question from the finale, we were leading by 5 clear points – we were unbeatable! Except that we weren’t because the last question was worth 10 points and we got it wrong. We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory and slunk out in third place. But we’ll be back, oh yes, more clueless…er…clued up than ever!

I know this has little to do with book promotion, but I promised Sarah and Ian I’d be mentioning the injustice in my Blog!

Back to all things book-related! I was re-reading my previous blogs and realised that I haven’t really given any details of my book – amateur mistake. So here’s what you need to know:

  • Â Â Â Karma by Holly A Harvey
  • Â Â Â ISBN 9781905108374
  • Â Â Â Released 26 February 2007
  • Â Â Â Available online at retailers such as Amazon, WHSmith, Tesco, Play.com

Since last time, I had a response from WHSmith with regard to book-signings – I can’t say that it was hugely encouraging. Basically, they’ve given my details to their local book buyer who will get in touch IF they are interested. So, in the case of WHSmith, no news is not good news…

Sarah (friend and owner of Henry’s Books) has been talking to my publisher about a book-signing on World Book Day, which is 1 March 2007 – that’s all that I have secured to date. I haven’t heard anything from my publisher recently, as they have a book coming out next week and are busy with that. I was also hoping that my website would be up and running this week, but it isn’t – maybe next week?

So, where do I go from here? I’m off to look on eBay for a Thinking Cap…
