We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun....

The Glove on the Railing is on holiday for the forseeable future.


There's bloody irony for you.

Like many people, I found this blog via Popbitch. It had clearly only recently been started. And now it seems to have come to an end amid cryptic talk of book deals. A canny bit of stealth marketing, one wonders? Over to you, Mr. Moran...

Mikey said...

I'm very happy to have been thought canny. The truth is rather more prosaic and illustrative of my characteristic impatience.

My agent was already out shopping the property when I got a bit bored and started posting bits of it online to see what people thought of it. The PopBitch thing was an unforeseen development which increased the visibility of the project rather unexpectedly.

Im very happy with the outcome, obviously, and will probably re-activate this blog at some point but I need to have another interesting idea first. It might be a while!

It doesn't really work as a marketing device because the book won't be out until Summer 2008, by which time I would have imagined most readers will have quite forgotten what they read in these few weeks.

Oh cack. Can't you at least go off on a tangent and write something else? Just keep writing!

Mikey said...

Well I'm very touched by that. More than any grownup really ought to be.

I'm bound to have a decent idea sooner or later. Or maybe I can pinch one someone else. Either way, I'll be back. Doing this blog was significantly more enjoyable than I expected it to be.

Oh, don't go. I feel I was just getting to know you - and then you cruelly vanish without so much as a bye-your-leave.

Best of luck. I was enjoying reading your blog, but understand when people need to go, stop, or change.

Cheers,

Good luck with the book, Mikey, and hopefully inspiration will strike back faster than the Empire.
