I’ve been away for a long time, I’m sorry, with work, some new projects, a little bit of holiday and other things. However, I haven’t forgotten Nine Planets, even though I haven’t said anything about it. People are still buying it and enjoying it too (!), so I’m of the opinion that it’s going to be a slow burn rather than a sudden quick flame.
Here’s the latest. I gave a copy to a reviewer on a (reasonably) large Australian newspaper some weeks ago and he promised to read it and possibly write a review in his paper if he thought it was good enough. That sort of publicity is absolute gold so I was delighted. Then he went quiet for some weeks, the sort of delay that makes you think, Hmmmm. He doesn’t like it and is just letting it fade quietly away.
Until last night, that is, when he emailed me to say that he had skimmed through the book and decided that it was, and I quote “Definitely review-worthy! Watch this space.”
I’m taking that as a confirmation that he will review it *beams* As he said . . .
Watch this space.
