Normally, my blog gets left all alone for days, weeks and sometimes months.

I get around to writing something when I feel the urge, but over the next five weeks I will be on a UK tour for the release of my new novel (Flight Path) and I hope to turn this blog into a much more regular Travel Log…
The “tour”, like all things in the Independent World of Publishing, has been driven along without the assistance of a big name publishing house. It comes down to one or two people having a bit of “oomph” and getting things done. A huge thanks goes to Jasmine, the wondrous Executive Assistant to the Book Reality Experience 🙂 for all her organisational skills, and to Jules (our on-call graphics genius) for all the artwork, posters and banners. From here on, it all hinges on the cooperation and assistance of quite a few others dotted around the UK and I hope to thank each of them in due course. 🙂

Over the next 35 days I shall be in Wiltshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Conwy, Dublin, Antrim, Cambridgeshire, London, Merseyside, Yorkshire, Essex, Suffolk and probably a few places in between. Some are for book events and some are for social catch-ups. I hope to blog about the trip regularly. Not sure if a theme will develop, not sure if the posts will be long or short, not sure if there will be pictures. I guess it will turn out to be what it will be.
Day 1.  From the ridge line to Perth and thence to Dubai on an Emirates flight. Not a lot to inform you about, other than to make a heartfelt plea to anyone who knows any Emirates staff flying out of Perth tonight at 22:05… I always think an upgrade is such a kind thing to give to unsuspecting lone travellers 😉
