My very first interview and book news

Last week I was contacted by the good folks at Fenlands Church who said that they wanted to interview me for their interweb site. Naturally I said yes and invited one of them over to my home (I didn't want too many people muddying the carpet so one's enough). The interview was arranged for Thursday early morning, as the gentleman said that he had previous appointments Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,  and said he could possibly squeeze the interview in at that time (I wasn't as fussy as he was and it could have been any one of those days as I was not too busy). He promised me that I would feature prominently on their website. I've heard these sort of promises before, so imagine my surprise when the interview was posted in its entirety. Of course, I'm a little bit disappointed that some portions weren't edited before being made public but not to worry, at least the David Lemezmer name is getting further coverage which can't be a bad thing, can it?

A question I have been asked as a result of the interview, from the solitary e-mail I received, was regarding my autobiography (on another note, I wonder if my interweb connection to e-mails is playing up, as I expected a lot more feedback from such an in-depth interview). The respondent wanted to know a bit more about it and so I feel compelled to let you have a sneak peek at the cover. Although I have not found a publisher as yet - I really must start approaching potential publishers - I did spend a small sum of money on a mock-up of the book. I really hope this gives you an idea of what's in store.

Like I said, this is just a mock-up but it should save the eventual publishing house a bit of time as thay can simply use my design for the jacket cover (I will insist on a hardback version only). I can't promise a time frame on its release as, although I have been writing this for about nine months now, I have only completed three chapters (forty-two pages) and am running out of ideas of what to fill it with. However, avid followers to this blog will get first chance to grab a copy before they fly off the shelves.
