Lots of exciting news for me recently. Here Come The Girls is out and doing a bit well - Sunday Times Bestseller list (21) and 25th best seller in the country chart - 10k books sold in the first week. Smashed my personal best by 2000 copies sold so I've had a 'little glass of Lanson' this week. Or 12. And it's only 3 1/2 months till my next one comes out.
Right - enough blowing my own trumpet. Thanks for everyone who came to my launches - I sold masses and we raised nearly £600 for 'The Well' and Haworth Cat Rescue. Plus we ate a lot of Shelley's gorgeous Captain's Cocktails cupcakes - this young lady is an exquisite baker of cakes! The detail was fabulous - little palm trees, ships and flip flops on the buns. Stunning. And they weren't those big awful ones that are just heartattacks in a bun case.
More later - I just wanted to get this up and running. Have a busy time coming up - after dinner speaking at the Mayor's Inaugural banquet on Friday, Southampton on Saturday to schmooze with Marco PW, Dame Shirley Bassey (note order of importance for me there) - and Gail from Corro. Ship (Adonia) naming ceremony - dress code is 'black tie and diamonds'. My diamonds are particularly huge - well, I say 'diamonds'.
And if you fancy a FREE CRUISE - courtesy of P & O - why not enter my COMPETITION which closes midnight on Friday 1st July - 2 very lucky people will be going on a Med Cruise in September on the gorgeous Ventura.
More later... thanks for popping by.
