To Mexico - in one week!

This time next week I will in at Healthrow airport waiting for a flight to Toronto, Canada and then to Cancun, Mexico!!!!

Gosh I'm looking forward to it. The family are taking a break to do a Joshua Files Roadtrip. We had planned to follow in Josh's footsteps from Chetumal all the way to Catemaco but honestly the driving would just be too tiring.

So we're doing a cut down version. I will be posting much more about this, so stay tuned.

Meanwhile, especially for Lucas, I dug out this TV ad for Josh's favourite cupcakes, which he eats on his bus journey through Yucatan in 'Invisible City'.



The are called 'Pinguinos' and are like Hostess cupcakes - white vanilla cream inside a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting and a squiggle of white icing on top. And a childhood favourite of mine.

Mmmm, additives.

Hi again,
Just thought i would let you know, the Joshua Files release party is going ahead! We have some cool stuff to do. But we need some promotional stuff. Do you know if posters are sent out with the books. Because it's rare now that ANYTHING promotional is sent out. But it would be great if we could get some. :D
Here's what the local Waterstones say...
"If you could get some copies (signed) from the author and we could do a review in the front dump bin with abit of artistic display work. I mean your review (if shes got any posters or promotional stuff that would be great) we can give it a go!"
So i think it's a yes please to the signed books if that's possible.
Thank you very much. I think we are going to do a nice display outside, in the window and in the childrens section. :D
Hopefully we should get a lot of sales.

Re the Pinguinos ad - I see what you mean! But it's just a coincidence. The bit of the book you are referring to was inspired by something else, and when it's published I'll tell/show you.

Re your launch party, sounds like a lot of fun! I will be in touch with my agent and publishers and see what they can make available for you.

Now must go back to bed, just back from a night out in London, dinner and dancing, very tired...

Those look like the most synthetic cakes known to man. Hurrah!

Road trip sounds fantastic: look forward to multiple tempting photos...
