I don’t want to let her go. I’ll carry her around for a bit, like a newborn.
My books are here. The publisher was having trouble with the delivery service so delivered them this morning himself, and to Ben McNally’s too. So there will be books for the launch, which was looking dubious until today.
It looks great, though there are a few things I’d change. Aren’t there always?
Lesia, a former student, is the first reader of the actual book and has already posted a review on FB: “I preordered the book and read it in a day: That’s how engaging the essays are, and how interesting a life Beth looks back on from her current vantage point.” She says it should be a textbook for essay writers. Yes, thank you, fine with me.
I’m listening to the new Stones album on Spotify. Impossible to believe they’re in their eighties. Woo hoo!
I won’t be posting so much in a bit, but these are exciting times, hope you don’t mind. In the meantime, a few laughs. Once again, here I am.
