First edition of The Grease Monkey's Tale - hot off the press


Great to see that the first copies of The Grease Monkey's Tale have arrived at the offices of Legend Press and PaperBooks.  Printed and bound and ready to be released in the UK.  Very, very, very exciting!  Have received heaps of positive comments about the cover design - and it is a stunner - so hope that will translate into people picking up the book and reading it... and ENJOYING it (of course) so much they recommend it to all their friends and buy more copies as birthday presents, Christmas presents, Father's day gifts, etc, etc.


Last weekend was a long (public holiday) weekend, so I had extra time to work on Number Three and Four.  Also put a good few hours into trying to resolve Actionscript problems with the new website I'm creating.  (Ten months ago, I thought developing a Flash website was only going to take me two months.  Hmm.) 

It was a cold, wet weekend - it being winter - but good to get out and about, and to spend time at the opening of the Blarney Books & Art 2010 Biblio-Art Competition amongst other things.  A packed and very popular opening with a fantastic exhibition of entries.  If you're likely to be visiting Port Fairy this winter, I strongly recommend dropping in to Blarney Books & Art and having a browse.  Am delighted to be able to give it a plug here.

All VERY exciting! When do you think you'll have a copy in your own hands? I guess we all get to see it before you do?

Well, I just preordered my copy:) I've got to read Wolf Hall (all 650pages) by next Book Club meeting...I wonder if I can get it read by the time GM arrives?

Blimey, I wish those ladies at the BC would pick some shorter novels:)I am seriously considering an EReader...my handbag is overflowing....

I guess you will, Mike. Unless I fly over ... which isn't on the cards, I'm afraid. One day, I'll be there for a launch.

I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on Wolf Hall, Jane. I haven't read it yet. And thanks for ordering a copy of The Grease Monkey's Tale. Hope you enjoy it.
