Reasons to be cheerful part 3

I got an email from my publisher today. Hark at me getting all Gwyneth Paltrow "I got an email from my publisher..." and my agent called this morning, well the Betterware lady put a catalogue through and that amounts to the same thing I think. Anyway back to my publisher; he says the book has gone to the printers and he's pulling out all the stops to get it to me in time for the book launch. He also suggested that I have a back up plan in case it doesn't. Back up plan? My book was my back up plan! Anyway I've had the day off and have been working on a back up plan so as not to disappoint anyone.

Has anyone seen my suitcase?

You'll just have to read the whole book to us at the launch party.

T; I don't think that would be much fun for either of us!!

You are so funny! I've read your back up plan and it is inspired to say the least. xo

will your publisher be at the launch? I could bring a water pistol or two or should it be a catapult and ripe tomatoes?

or is that plan C?

Chopper said...

DJ; Thank you.

LinR; I don't think so but he was cordially invited.

My fingers are crossed for you.

Re: your publisher. I’d worry if he pulls out all the stops, don’t let him get near the commas and speech marks as well...
By the way, is there beer? If so, don’t worry about the back up plan...

Yes Joe's right. Get your fans drunk and sing rugby songs instead ;-) TFx

BTW Good luck and I hope you're publisher meets your deadline.
