Publicity

During my growing up years I was taught never blow your own trumpet.  If something is good enough it will succeed.   That was a long time ago but old habits die hard and I still find it difficult to say to anyone this is a brilliant book about one of my creations. I am much better at doing it for other folks books.  Actually I don’t think I have ever said that about any of mine.  This is not false modesty – I do think some of mine are good and sometimes when I have read something I haven’t seen for a long time I think, Gosh did I really write that?  It gives me a real boost.  Then I remember that old showbiz saying, you’re only as good as your last show, song, story, book, whatever it is you do that appears in public.
