Book endorsements

Since our book is a new title, we have not yet managed to secure any endorsements for it, which has always been a petty concern of mine.

Last night, discussing this with one of the guys I am staying with, he came up with a cracking one that I should try and get: “Gillian Gibbons: the book I wish I’d read.”

Thought that it has a lovely ring to it. The only thing is that I’m not sure the teddy bear lady is yet ready to laugh about what happened to her, and therefore might not wish to give such an endorsement.

As an aside, book selling extremely well at the moment. Going round all the independent bookshops that stock travel titles, and they are all pretty enthusiastic about it, which is always nice. Slightly hard to crack the main high street chains, who have a much more formal and officious way of doing things. And many of the “independent bookshops”, I have learnt, are actually only masquerading as such – and, in fact, are now owned by big chains, with all the complications that entails.

    I have had it on order from Amazon UK for some time, but they claim not to be able to get hold of it… Are they just being difficult?

    well she said she liked Sudan and it’s one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
    She wouldn’t mind endorsing it!
