This is the final version of the cover of the book

The Cover

 

OK people, we’re now 17 days behind schedule. The good news is that the book is back from the editor (Mrs G) and subject to a few changes it is almost ready for upload.

The next step was to design a cover.  Now I was going to get one of my lovely design friends to have a look at this for me but in the spirit of the experiment I decided to have a crack myself.  This is after all, “self” publishing.  But not being particularly confident with these things (I designed it using word!) I would quite like your opinion on it.  So please cast your anonymous vote below.

A graph of my cold over the past week

Lots of people have been asking me how I feel after picking up the most awful cold.  It’s called a cold but it might have been diphtheria.

Just to give a full outline of the illness I have plotted its course on a graph. As you can see yesterday things got a little bit scary but I’m pleased to say that I am now on the mend.

At this point it might be worth also viewing this bit of comedy gold if you’ve got a 1.37 mins to spare.
