Panic stations

April 1st, 2010

My publisher just told me the publication date for my book has been moved forward, and the due date for the manuscript is “…well, now”. Lots needing to be done, and zero time to do it, but I’m sure I’ll manage somehow.

    Unless, of course, it was an April Fool’s joke, in which case, you can relax again …

    Why do I feel guilty?

    Isn’t that moved backwards?

    April Fool!! :-)

    And, in case it isn’t an April Fool’s Day joke by your publisher, just remember the immortal words from “The Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, above all “Don’t Panic”.

    It was still 31 March in the US. Very few Americans can grok the dateline well enough to April Fool an Australian, so I’m taking it seriously.

    I remember once writing some computer documentation that I began with “Don’t panic” – but, for balance, I ended it with “Now you may panic”.

    Good luck, I’ll be keen to hear about it upon release. /cheers

    Someone called Martin Feils?? was on TV this morning saying free market economics caused the collapse of maunfacturing in Australia and caused our foreign debt to blow out and its all been happening over thirty years and that government policy has not been based on “evidence” but on something else….(fairy stories and faith?)

    Someone else out there is talking sense and without being paid by someone to talk nonsense. You had better hurry up with your book!

    This is where you turn the final version back over to crowdsourcing and we get to slip in our own peculiar rants and assertions you won’t have time to check!
