How come your own book ain’t out in time to disappoint fathers & uncles hoping for socks, guys?

I’ve been amazed at how long the publishing process takes. The commercial one, I mean. Most of my “proper” book was finished 12 months before it will be published. Just as well it’s about the past.

Instant publishing is one of the great advances in civilisation. I’ve gone from concept to sale in less than a week.

Which reminds me. I’ve two books to finish by next Wednesday.

On a couple of occasions I’ve actually been asked if I went to Timpsons and asked them to cut me a key that would open a bottle! That would be crazy. Though one day I may have a lock made that fits the bottle opener key…
