I have been so busy this past week, but my new book is finished now – almost every last word of it. The writing is done, but there is more work to do, of course. Appropriate pictures have to be sorted out; distribution arrangements, the ISBN, PR stuff; and I’m still waiting for that bloody cover – you know who!!
Its taken about 16 months, but been worth it. It is the second volume of my autobiography “David Farrant – In the Shadow of the Highgate Vampire”; (but I’m not telling you the next title just yet) for the sake of anybody who has not been following this. And, of course, it will have an Introduction – but I’m not telling you who’s writing that either. You’ll just have to wait and see! Well, I don’t want to spoil the fun; or rather give too much away yet.
Anyway, that’s why I haven’t done a Blog this past week. I literally didn’t want to be distracted. So what’s in it? It covers my life from 1974 through the mid 1990’s, and there’s a LOT in it. I kid thee all not. If its variety you like there’s enough of that – from people ‘dying in duels’ and ‘starring’ in ‘vampire movies’ to real life ‘cloak and dagger schemes’ that would make the devil appear like some reformed Church warden. Yes, I can hear some people asking . . . is there any sex in it? Well, maybe a bit, but only a little!
Earned a few days off now. Still got other things to do. Well, what do you expect? Running a large Society is not exactly easy. That’s not something you can just ;finish’. There’s always things to do.
Which reminds me, I’m STILL looking for a new secretary (but a trustworthy one this time). Anybody got any idea’s? Qualifications not really necessary: except must be female; doesn’t object to working late hours, and making me coffee occasionally (or pouring me a drink!). Other than that, I’m not that fussy!
Well, I think I’ve earned a drink or two tonight (or maybe 3 or 4). Definitely having a short break before I start the 3rd Volume. Yes there’s still another Volume to do, in case I forgot to mention it!
Please phone me over the weekend K and I can fill you in. And Simon, I’ll be posting that for you on Monday.
For the moment, David
