King Arthur moves forward...i think.

As you know, Sy has had His 'Arthur' book out in the publishing ether for quite a while.
But, with the sale of books in general being a bit precarious at the moment, Sy has decided to try and give it some publicity, in the form of the Harpers Collins Authors site;

He posted details of the book five days ago, and the result has been pretty phenomenal.
Although publishers are doing there damndest to scramble away from manuscripts, it would seem the lovely readers and other writers of the world are not.

Sy's book 'Commanding Youth' has shot up the Authonomy charts in five days, to the point where it is number 4 on the weekly list, number 1 on the biography list and number 1 on the history list.
Out of over 4000 manuscripts, he is in the main chart, as i write, at number 139.

This could change at any moment of course....and not always for the better.
On the upside, this has given him a real boost- there are people out there who want to know about the real 'Arthur'.
But of course, there is a downside.
Sy has alway's said that he would never go on any forums.
Well that's all changed.
Because Authonomy has a brilliant networking forum on it's site.
Lot's of new virtual friends, who are supportive of his work.

And just you try and get him off it.

if you get a minute, go and check it out.

And in the meantime, i'll see if i can pull Sy away from it long enough to take the scraps to the compost bin.
Yes, love, that means you.

Till next time,
Shakespeare's Housekeeper xx


  1. Yeayyyyy!

    I have an idea. How about you post a short interview with him on your blog. Then I'll get my intelligent friends to check it out?

    Okay. I only have one intelligent friend but still, it would be fun?

    Sample Questions:

    So, tell us about your book?

    What is the biggest misconception about ARthur?

    When did you first realize you wanted to marry me?

    Which of my body parts is your favorite, but keep it clean Mista.

    What is your favorite thing about me?

    It would be funny. hee hee

  2. You did not publish my comment. I'm thinking I said something bad. I do that from time to time. I can't help it.

    Drawing cirlcle in sand with toe, looking downward feeling ashamed.

    Hee hee

  3. Charmaine!
    Nothing offensive, honest!
    I have to share the laptop with Darling Daughter....so i don't get on it half as often as i would like.
    Have you ever tried to get a teenager with face book, Bebo and Myspace off a computer?
    It's like fighting with a Rottweiler.
    Lucky old Sy has a computer to himself, but God help me if i ever go near it.
    Don't panic if i don't post comments straight away- i normally have to check every couple of days- do keep commenting though.
    I really look forward to them!

  4. Tee Hee - just seen the Poll - am now thinking very carefully of some questions to ask :o)


Your words are every bit as important as Mr Shakespeares.
Put some of them together, and leave me a comment...but don't worry if it takes me a few days to get round to reading them- i have nine jobs and a writer who needs me!
