Deadline panics

I thought I'd be on top of things by the end of this week, but it hasn't quite happened - so I've just asked for another week to get my manuscript of the third Mokie and Bik in to Henry Holt (and they've kindly said okay.)

So emails - I think I owe over 100 now - and blogs will have to wait till the following week. And one of the things I'll be able to tell you about then will be the Rye school's 'What if Everyone in Rye Read the same book', which I'm opening Monday morning. (Then race home to the computer for the Ipswich Online Festival.)

So till then...
