To tie in with the official launch day of Tout Sweet in the US, I've written a two-part guest posting for Liberty London Girl, starting today with 'Five Things I've Learnt Since Moving To France' (including why Frenchmen wear Speedos and the secret of how never to be ill from oysters again...)
Sasha, a fellow Francophile - soon to be holidaying (or should that be 'vacationing'?) just 56km from me - was one of the first to read and review Tout Sweet, second only to my friends in the travel department of The Mail On Sunday. Her support has been invaluable and her quote is on the cover of the US version. Cheers for that LLG!
In other news, my third book, 'Tout Soul: The Pursuit Of Happiness In Rural France' is a whisker away from completion. It's been a while I know, but I'd like to thank everyone who has sent motivational emails telling me to get a move on, thus helping to pull me back from the brink of a recently acquired Twitter addiction (www.twitter.com/mimipompom1).
Biff meanwhile, spurred on by the success of his guest blog posting - well, five comments! - is wondering if he should write a tell-all book, provisionally entitled, 'A Dog's Life: Tales From The Poitou-Charentes.
Finally, I've already started to receive emails from readers in the US who managed to get hold of early copies of Tout Sweet and must have read it, well ... tout de suite, so I'd like to say thank you and bonjour to them..
