London Book Fair

I had a very exciting day yesterday at the London Book Fair, meeting up with fellow authors, and people from Ellora's Cave, Samhain and TotaleBound publishers, and Ethan Ellenberg a NY Agent (not mine!) and best of all, being filmed by the BBC by super cameraman Mark and interviewed by the very kind Marie. Amazing how tiring it was to just walk around and talk on camera. I have new respect for those who have to do it all the time. I think the worse moment was when Marie said - talk naturally to Raelene from Ellora's Cave and my mind went blank. Well, my mind is always going blank but it was really hard to chat. Raelene, of course, was a pro. It was me who was the dweeb. The best bit was walking through the crowds with the cameraman walking backwards in front of me.  DON'T LOOK AT THE CAMERA!!! I felt for just a fraction of a second like a film star.
