Words from a Glass Bubble: Update ii

THE LAUNCH A conversation.

What, thinking about the launch already?

Doing more than thinking, peeps.

When’s this book coming out…March?


Come on. We’ve got Christmas, New Year, Bonfire Night, Valentine’s Day before then

Yes. And?


St David’s Day.


St David’s Day. Leeks, daffodils and Glass Bubbles.

Oh bloody hell. You’re one of them. Welsh.

Oh yes. Listen: Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn anwyl I mi, Gwlad beirdd a chantorion enwogion o fri

Stop! My ears aren’t working. What’s that noise?

Welsh national Anthem, actually, idiot. Oh unlearned idiot.

You are no Bryn Terfel, Vanessa.

Sorry. Ahem. Back to the launch…

A launch with leeks and daffodils then? On St David’s Day?

I didn’t say that.

You said ‘And St David’s Day.' Like it meant something. So…

It does. The book might be published then. The launch might be a week or so later…

So no need for leeks. Thank Heavens for that.

No leeks.

So having a few drinks at home then?


Huh? So what ARE you doing?

Not finalised yet. Keep reading this blog…I’m planning to do all sorts.

Do? What do you mean, do all sorts? Launches are… launches.

Yes, course they are. However…

Oh God. Is this V thinking sideways again? When will you learn to think frontwards?

Never, I hope. Now. The launch…


Oh right… we’ll take you off the invitation list then…
