I'm hoping to have my Manchester official launch in the new downstairs bar extension in Cornerhouse, as the lovely Claire who hosted a great launch for Balancing on the Edge of the World at Chorlton Chroma two years ago now runs the restaurant at Cornerhouse. However, this afternoon I discovered that building work on the extension is behind schedule, and I won't know till next week whether it will be possible... I'll keep you posted, though.
And talk about hiccups: now others can't print out the files of the posters I composed for our Sept 26th reading, and I may be going to have to go out and buy my own colour printer... Eek.
On the bright side, I've been invited by Salt's wonderful Ride the Word organizers Jay Merill and Vincent de Souza to read at the Cafe Yumchaa in Soho on November 18th, the day after the Calder Bookshop launch. Exciting.
(Just don't call me a writer, call me a project manager instead.)
