If I’ve been a bit quiet these last few days, its only because of the cold.
I mean, it went from being ‘cold’ to being bitterly freezing, and its much warmer sitting over the fire than at the computer. Even a few feet makes a difference in this weather, and on top of that there has not really been that much to say. Don’t get me wrong; I have still had loads of things to do by day; some of which have meant going out in the bloody cold! I suppose the good thing is, it won’t last much longer so around the beginning of next week, I’ll try and write more.
Most interest of late has been in the new book though, which you should now all know is completely finished. Well, I still don’t want to give too much away, but I can tell you that the ut price has been set (all in) at about £15, it has 270 pages with 20 pages of b/w photographs inside. The cover is in black and white; not to save expense actually, but because we thought it looked more ‘nostalgic’. The title is a secret at this stage, but I can tell you the title is illumed with the words “David Farrant”. (Well, why not? I’ve always been a little conceited, and I am the author after all!).
The next book is well on the way to being finished as well, and has a picture of its ‘star’ on the cover. The title has not yet been finalised but I’ve had several suggestions. Not sure I’ll take some of them, especially when you get suggestions like . . . “The Confessions of Judas Iscariot”! It wouldn’t matter so much, but it’s the wrong sex!
So I have been still working, but just shying the cold. Having that, the flat is a lot cosier now, and is being improved all the time. The next step is to restore my worktop in the kitchen to its original position – but that can wait till its warmer. Got to put some new shelves up as well. I didn’t realize that I had so much stuff.
Well, its back to the fire again everyone. Maybe a glass of whiskey later. I’ve got a good excuse with this cold weather!
For the moment,
