Hah! I'm done! It is over! (for 6 weeks anyway)

It's over! I don't have another tour until the actual ANANSI BOYS tour in September, by which time I trust that my hand will no longer feel like it's been signing 3000 things a day...

So. Got to Brisbane. Slept from the moment I got onto the plane until the moment, shortly before landing, when the plane did one of those extreme stomach-plunging momentary drops, which proved good for waking me up.


Then did an interview with Flora from Headline which will go into the back of the new pretty uniform Headline editions of the books which come out when ANANSI BOYS comes out. (They'll look pretty much like the ones I've put up here, although they won't all have the same Bill Gibson quote on the front.










Then on to the Pulp Fiction signing, which was probably the most fun of all the tour, although I suspect the fact that it was the last had a lot to do with that. It ended at around 12.30 and a fine time was had by all.

Just about to check out of my odd hotel (it's the Conrad Treasury, an upmarket hotel in the former treasury offices, and the bedrooms feel like large, posh, wood-panelled government offices with beds in).

Off to stay with, and spend time with, Eddie Campbell and his family now.

......................................................

And in case any of you are wondering what I'm going to be doing in late September...

I've just noticed the extreme lack of days off, which is odd because I thought I had at least one at some point in there...
