Five days to the start of the London Book Fair and it is the usual gamut of things going right and those turning wrong. 
I'm not going to bore you with details of printers, brochures, logos and egos, because today I am taking big breaths - in and out!
It's always the same at this time - the 'never again, I'm getting out of this business' shoots through me, and I think of taking up work in a war zone. But the truth is it usually all turns out well in the end - and it is that sense of things 'turning out well in the end' that keeps me breathing in and out - slowly. No yelling! No being despondent as those I don't want to meet bombard me with requests for appointments while those I want to meet stay silent. 
It will be fun - a sharing event with books at it's very core. Now breathe!
