Again, I suppose I should apologise for my conspicuous absence around these parts of late. This new job is more time consuming than I could have imagined, especially in these first few weeks. In fact, I'm supposed to be working right now at 7 cunting 30 in the evening. So, I will continue to operate on hibernation levels for the immediate future.
Still, I had to post today as I just got some good news. Following the publishing of Tim Worstall's book (that can be bought here, by the way) I sent off a speculative proposal for an anthology of humorous blogging to Tim's publisher. Didn't hear anything, and all but forgot about it.
Got home from work this evening to find an email from the publishing director to say that she very much liked the idea and would like to meet up over a beer to discuss it.
Unfortunately, of course, I live in the cold, dark hinterlands of Manchester so it's a little difficult to drop everything and drive four hours south to have a beer and talk books. Initially, then, I hope to get her on the phone and bang out a few ideas. Hopefully I'll say something awfully impressive and win her confidence. In the meantime I have to get back to bloody work and make a few phone calls. Bah.
