Re: Ask the Author

How did you publish? Who actually printed the books?

Re: Ask the Author

I used a company called Technographic, who are based near Colchester, Matt. I've developed a good relationship with them over the past few years, so although I could probably get the books printed more cheaply elsewhere, I would be very reluctant to change now.

Re: Ask the Author

Your question is quite timely - I must speak with him about this again soon. The bottom line is, however, that until I get a book deal in the US and get some of my titles on the shelves over there, I doubt very much whether anything productive will come of the interest that has been shown to date. I wouldn't hold your breath for a film for a while yet.

Re: Ask the Author

That ties in well with a question I was going to ask
Have you had any offers or hints of interest from the states?

Hints, yes. Offers, no. Not yet. I live in hope that sometime this year I will be able to give a different answer.

Re: Ask the Author

Hi Mark,
Can you come to our school(Henry Box, Witney) and do a talk and a workshop?
It would be really good - I thought I might ask my English teacher to think about booking you.

Re: Ask the Author

Hi, Threddy. I'd be delighted to come, but you'll have to get your teachers to approach me directly in order to make it happen. I should warn you that my diary is already fully booked until the Autumn ... and that is filling fast! The earliest I would be likely to come is October unless I get any cancellations.

Re: Ask the Author

October?! One of your websites is out of date. It said that you were booked until June.
I'll have to suggest it to my English teacher at some point, but she's quite scary!

4th August, Matt. And yes, I'll be coming back to Cribbs later in the year, but I'm not sure when yet.

Re: Ask the Author

Hello, Lilly. Nice to see you here again. I'm afraid I still have no news about whether my books will find their way to South Africa. I might have more positive news after the Bologna book fair next week. We'll have to wait and see.
