Well, it’s been a week since the publication of Dark Heart, and a few things have happened:
Stephen King got in touch to congratulate me on the book and said he’d like to endorse the next print run.
My publisher dropped off the keys to a new poppy-red Porsche, just as a little ‘thank you’ for signing with them.
Mariella Frostrup called and personally invited me onto the Book Show. We had a very intimate chat and then she said she wasn’t wearing any clothes and then asked me what I was wearing and then we had a five minute: ‘You put the phone down first’ – ‘No, you put the phone down first.’
A bunch of wonderful friends and family bought lots of copies of my book and gave Dark Heart a great start (thank you all).
Three of the above only happened in my overactive imagination. Delete where applicable.
