Staying in with Linda

That was fun! I’ve been ‘staying in’ with the lovely Linda Hill of the multi-award-winning blog, Linda’s Book Bag. What a pleasure that was! It was an honour to be in conversation with her, particularly as she has been so supportive of Note to Boy since we first ‘met’ almost two years ago.

Back then I talked about London in the Swinging Sixties and the business of crowdfunding through my publishers, Unbound. This time we chatted about – well, why not have a read?

I’ll just say, maybe it was the biscuits and the gin but it all got a bit surreal. Enjoy!

Publication day!

It’s here! Note to Boy was launched into the world – and the bookshops – on 23 July 2020.

No actual champagne and nibbles party being possible, the splendid people at the independent bookshop, Mostly Books, arranged a launch via Zoom. More than 50 people crammed into the virtual venue, tucking into the imaginary cocktails and macaroons. Great to see so many smiling faces – some from Italy, Germany, the US, not to mention the wilds of Cornwall. But they weren’t just there to enjoy themselves. I had to answer some of their probing questions too!

Star of the evening was the comedy legend that is Paul Mayhew Archer, who interrogated me most charmingly about bits of the book I hadn’t even noticed myself. You can see the interview here.

Thank you for helping me celebrate. I had a great time. I hope you did. Now it’s up to Eloise and Bradley!
