this is the MOST fun that one could have on a book tour – while staying at home in one’s satin slip.
firstly – a note from the Old (Boys – and now fully co-ed) School:
We’ve ordered a copy for the library! You must sign it next time you are here!! x
*blush* Rather! *throws_beret_in_the_air*
so that’s Brighton, England.
where else has the book appeared this week?
gosh, well, everywhere!
diego had a moment by the fireside after reading his copy.
Just Add Attitude gave us the 1st sighting in DUBLIN, IRELAND!
George even took a copy to La Belle France on his recent trip to keep a copy of his own novel company (3rd in the series, we are not-so-patiently-waiting-for-the-4th)
the book got a workout with a Top Trainer at an undisclosed (although quite clearly overlooking the Ocean) Location here in Tinseltown.
because it slightly overindulged in a delicious High Tea at The Marguerite beach hut in Whitstable, created by sophie.
and then took a nap with Katrina at Judith’s house on the East Coast
we’re also very popular (it being mostly a Picture Book you see, and we did think of That when we made it) with small children – this small child is a delightful Resident of the East Coast too and her full name (because we were given permission to share it – is Marlo Paige Knowles and she is scrumptious.
and here it is in Switzerland today where it just arrived on a Cross-Continental Flight wearing dark glasses and a suspiciously expensive overcoat and just hand luggage because it has a full set of clothing duplicated in the cedar-lined wardrobes over There.
What an incredible world tour the book is On!
sometimes (because who-we-are-in-RL has one of those “familiar” faces) she gets asked:
are you somebody?
and the other day she smiled (sweetly) and said:
no. but I play someone online.
we Preened in a rather ego-puffed-up (but still pretty) way.
Back to the Post for today.
In Other News!
mixed with some Deeply Practical work sending out (100 to date) handwritten cards for The Digital Check Upand actually walking (not fast, but meaningfully) to the postal receptacles (there are two side by side not far from teamgloria towers and we split the pile into two each time, just for luck or something like that).
and then our latest article on Tara Kolla and the Silver Lake Farms came out in Los Angeles, I’m Yours which was ever so nice and well, fragrantly beautifully.
there you have it.
a world tour while we stay safely in Los Angeles (until April 3rd when we fly to meet it in London, Deia/Majorca, Ibiza and London again with Whitstable – yes, with William on the Way Back) when we go to Meet the book and see how it is enjoying the world.
the world is a very lovely place.
is it lovely where you are today?
and is the book happy in your house?
it likes ribbons.
just so you know.
and close proximity to roses.
about so many things, actually.
