Finally the date is confirmed. The book launch will be on the 19th of April 2012.  So it is still 5 weeks away today, and of course at this stage I think I have everything under control. There will be a puppet show. Not too long, just to introduce some of the characters and give an idea of the contents of the book.

This morning I woke up having the entire puppet show in my head. I need to write it down and practise, even though I know I won’t stick to the script, I never do. Usually I have a rough idea of what I want to say and make up the rest. My puppet movie will have to wait, as the first script I came up with will be incorporated into the launch show. I don’t want to give away too much. But this of course raised the issue that the launch needs to be recorded. I will have to find two people, one for stills and one for moving images. Better make a list of how many helpers I need.

The most pressing task now is to get out a press release. But I also have to update my website. This brings me to the issue of selling and distribution, now that is another issue and I will write an additional post on that one.
