Yes, it's the waiting game.

I've done the hard work. Written the book (Franco's Fiesta, BTW) and now, it's in the hands of the gods. Well, actually some postie.

My publisher is getting restless. My agent is waiting for his 10%. The book tour is lined up. The interviews with the broadsheet press and the BBC ready to go. My cat wants feeding...

I think it was Churchill who put it best, "Sod it, I'll have a pint."
