So here it is – the big launch. Yeh!
What I should be doing is signing and selling books but my book signing ventures have been put on hold as the book shops are closed and all the speaking engagements I’d had lined up are cancelled! Even the newspaper has cancelled my interview. And you don’t need to guess why. Yes! This awful coronavirus has me well and truly locked down, so the only thing I’m launching today is my very good neighbour with my credit card who has offered to get my shopping in.
But in the midst of all this bad news let’s keep positive, shall we? At least this virus is having an impact on the environment. Carbon emissions have reduced drastically throughout the world. In some places as much as 50%. Wow! We’re doing in a matter of weeks what was expected to take years. There are now fish in the canals of Venice and even swans have turned up the grace its waters. Fighting around the world diminishes as enemies suddenly find a common foe in a virus, and a wonderful community spirit has emerged. All our neighbours placed a candle in their window Sunday night as a sign of hope and the effect was lovely – especially for those living alone. And as I write this the sun is shining and bright yellow daffoldils adorn my garden.
The other good news is that we’re all doing more reading. In my previous post I told you all about ‘The Senator’s Darkest Days’ which is the sequel to ‘The Senator’s Assignment‘. If responses so far are anything to go by, I promise you’ll enjoy it.
