I spent yesterday feeling bloated and stuffed. I think too much chocolate was consumed on Sunday, and the black pudding supper I had for my dinner definitely did NOT help matters. Greed, pure greed!
My press release for the Kindle releases is done. I wrote through another couple of drafts of it yesterday and now feel that it is in a good place. It’s now a good balance so I’m happy for it to go out. The release will go through in the net couple of days once I can get them all submitted and the website updated.
I continued putting together my May newsletter for next week. It’s going to be a biggie! This is the second that follows after a three month spell so I’ve kind of developed into a quarterly pattern with them. It seems to be working in that giving more time between means more news and making it more worthwhile.
If you’ve been away or missed it, there are some new reviews up on my music website: Jamiroquai, The Rab Howat Band and Kid Canaveral all get the once over at The Man in the East. Check them out!
Jamiroquai (SECC, Glasgow)
The Rab Howat Band (Bannerman’s Bar, Edinburgh)
Kid Canaveral (Henry’s Cellar Bar, Edinburgh)
Looks like I’ll have another review going up at the end of the weekend also. I’m covering the launch of Pensioner’s new album at Sneaky Pete’s on Wednesday.
Today is a day off. I won’t be in the office at all because my mother is coming through to spend the day with me in Edinburgh. We have lots planned: a gallery, Holyrood, a meal and then a show this evening. So no work today, but plenty of photo ops! And the weather as I look out my office window… I’m going to need my shades today!
