Just delivered the edited page proofs of The Accidental Pilgrim (very minor changes, thank goodness).
Despite having seen the whole book printed out many times, there was something very strange about looking at the proofs – typeset as the finished book will be, with crop marks and the French stuff in italics and all that mullarkey. Suddenly it looked like a book.
Cover design is now sorted, and publication’s set for third or fourth week in Feb, with publicity to follow immediately thereafter.
Should be talking with the PR folks next week, so prepare for a media blitz. You can never have too much coverage of bicycles and sixth-century saints, that’s what I say.
