It’s publication day in the UK and India today, and I’ve just heard that Cometh The Hour (which came out in America last week) has gone to No.1 on the New York Times bestseller list, both print and ebook, which is thrilling. My first New York Times #1 since Kane and Abel.
As six chapters of the book are set in Bombay, we decided to give the Indians an exclusive jacket cover, which I hope my Indian readers will like.
I’ve spent the last week doing interviews for print media, radio and TV in the UK and overseas, and my Australian publisher tells me that by the time I complete my final interview next Wednesday, with Radio 3AW Melbourne, I’ll have been interviewed on a major station in every Australian city! In addition to these 17 interviews, I’ve also managed to squeeze in a book signing at Hatchards, a charity auction for the British Heart Foundation, a live Q&A audience event at the Telegraph and an evening at the theatre with Mary to see one of our favourite shows, Guys and Dolls. Lots more in store next week.
