I promised earlier in the week that I would have a couple of snippets of news for you. In fact it could very easily turn into another of those good news/bad news posts.
Let me give you the bad news first. That little rogue Bones (that’s him in the sidebar) of the once famous blog known as Bones Diary has decided that he has better things to do with his time that get chased around the house by his dad for using his computer. The fact that his dad – that’s me by the way – is using it all the time, and he barely gets chance to get his paws on it, is besides the point.
Bones has decided to call it a day and close down his blog for good.
Now despite his failings as an obedient family pet I have to admit some of the stuff he wrote wasn’t too bad. I don’t want it to go to waste so I’m asking you what you think. Should I create a Best of Bones’ Diary page on my blog with a few of his puppy posts on there or, like me, do you think “nah, he’s a little git, who wants to read that rubbish”? Perhaps I could turn it into an eBook and flog it; I could get a decent dog with the proceeds – only joking Marina, I know you love him.
Let me know what you think?
The good news is that I’ve started on my next book. This one is another true story about my travels and features a trip to South Africa to see my mate get married. It takes place about a year or so before the events that I told you about in Me & Gus on the Roof of the World.
I’ll probably do a more detailed outline for you in a few days, like the one I did for Roof of the World, but I promise there will be some more hilarious and hair raising moments to get your teeth into.
Up close and personal encounters with various wild animals, the missus getting attacked by a monkey, tickling a lion’s belly, and chasing a wolf as it headed for some tourists. There are also accounts of baring my behind to some farmers from the window of a train and a brief but savage fight between me and a Zulu warrior who was apparently still pissed off about Rorke’s Drift!
Right, I’m off. Just hit the comments button and let me know what I should do with Bones’ Diary. Cheers!
