I’ve been a little lazy over the past few days – but only on here though. Enough work in other directions so maybe ‘lazy’ isn’t the right word. Me, lazy? No I don’t think so! I probably do more work than people who have ‘9 to 5’ jobs!
In fact, I’ve really got my work cut out for me at the moment. I’m working on the 2nd Volume of my autobiography and have to put the final touches to the other one with the chapter “Pact with the Devil” in it (Loads more new material regarding the latter book so might need a little revision – rather insertions). Then there is Don Ecker’s paper which I promised to publish. Also had contact from the US who are interested in purchasing the rights to that ‘defunct’ manuscript somebody just sent me. So its ‘all go’!
If all that’s not enough, Patsy wants to bring out a new revised edition of her book about the Highgate ‘vampire’ case – though that’s not so hard as its already been published.
But regarding the current book “David Farrant – In the Shadow of the Highgate Vampire” that’s going very well. Sold over 90 copies since its release on February 23. (By the way, Don, if you’re reading this. I haven’t forgotten your copy. I really will package it up tonight. But don’t worry, yours will be free!).
Now, what else?
Well, books aside, I see Cat’s having a whale of a time on his new Blog. The mangy animal just had the cheek to say I was ‘possessed by the devil’! OK. To be fair, he said that somebody else had said it – but he still had to say it himself! I give up! If I’m not being accused of being a ‘sex maniac’ or a Satanist, he accuses me of wearing ‘cheeses-cloth knickers’!
Still no news from Jane; although she’s a bit far away for that. About 3,000 miles too far away! You know everyone, she’s really beautiful. In fact, I’m going to get a friend of mine to post up a photograph of her interviewing me, so then you can see for yourselves!
Nearer to home, more good news. The shop has managed to get my special brand of beer back which is good because its 10% volume (per can!). Well, it is a food as well, isn’t it?! On second thoughts, don’t answer that!
So anyway, I’m fine – apart from being ‘over-worked’ (in reality).
Phone call tonight. The person is calling back later (well sooner) so I’d better finish this off. But I’ll try and not be so long next time.
For the moment,
PS Barbara. Glad you had a good time at Ampleforth. Pity you missed her, I only wanted to send my regards!
