If this is a ‘Wednesday Post’ then it’s moved to Thursday. Blame either other aspects of family life taking over or inertia cos I seem to be stuck in commercial mode rather than creative mode.
However, if selling and posting copies of my memoir, The Baby Box, have come to a halt then the other side of self-publishing ie keeping in the public eye, has been fairly active.
After the mass mailing to journalists, newspapers and magazines carried out by my publisher Matador/Troubador, I given interviews for paper or online articles or as Podcasts. My own involvement in the creative writing wind of Birkbeck College, University of London, saw me meeting Wendy Lothian, a free-lance journalist in the National Portrait Gallery Cafe to talk about The Baby Box. The resulting article, which appeared in the MIROnline website is still available to read.
But now a second hiatus as we move into Book Festival Season and I set up talks to reading groups.
This seeems the time to gather the modest success achieved, to make a record of the links to discussions online so I, and anyone else, doesn’t lose track of them.

For some reason the link to the MIROnline article doesn’t work – or my search engines don’t like it – so copy and paste: JaneHaywarddiscussesherdebutmemoir. Then click on the result. It should work!
I’m chasing the results of an interview with The Chiswick Magazine with no success so far but that’s publishing for you!
