By the next blog, Lightbulb Moments in Human History: From Cave to Colosseum will have been released on an unsuspecting world!
It's the biggest step so far in a journey that began in January 2022, when it was accepted for publication. To be honest, it almost seems like an anti-climax as it feels like it's already out in the world.
It will be released on Friday 24 February in the UK and a week later in the US and Australia.
Strangely, while one book is finally emerging, book two, Lightbulb Moments in Human History: From Peasants to Periwigs, is at the publishers, about to be formatted for printing.
It's quite a surreal experience going through both these two quite different processes simultaneously, but I guess that could be the rhythm of my life for the foreseeable future, as my aim is to have book three ready early next year (about the same time as the release of book two)!
What's My Age Again?
In other news, the What's My Age Again? podcast about life after 50 I've recorded with my friend CJ released two episodes during January. This was to attempt to launch the podcast successfully, but we always intended to revert to a monthly release schedule.
The podcast has been received warmly (if not rapturously!), but we are hoping for a gradual increase in listenership!
Next month I'll have some idea of how the book release has gone. If you purchase the book, I hope you enjoy it. If you enjoy it, I'd love it if you would please leave a review wherever you purchased it.
