celebrations, publicity, etc.

The Bird Room is officially 'out' today.


at the moment i am celebrating by listening to Francois Hardy and typing this.

a bit later on i am going to celebrate by going to the post office and posting the books to the winners of the competition. i drew things (on request) including me practising my signature while a bird shits on my head, and 'a man and woman standing at the north pole staring at each other'.

later on still, i am going to continue celebrating by going to the pub.

an interview conducted by Steven Hall, is now up on the Canongate website.

there is also an article in The List, based on a phone interview from about a month ago. [warning: includes large photo of me, sitting on a stool, looking 'well pleased with myself'.] i am quoted as saying things in the interview which i don't remember saying but probably said.

[i wrote another paragraph here and then deleted it]
