I'm writing, a sort of, you know, another, thingummy.

I tend to avoid Twitter when I'm writing a book. Because if Twitter is anything, it's a great way of not-writing-a-book.

I'm generally shy of saying that I'm writing a book too. Because once you've said you're writing a book, people tend to ask questions. And answering questions is another great way of not-writing-a-book.

But I am. And it's definitely going to happen. And there's a link on amazon somewhere and so a couple of people have asked questions about it and so not mentioning it has become a bit silly.

And I know it's going to happen because they've designed a cover. Only the cover isn't on Amazon yet. I figured it made more sense to share it here first.

It's called Too Much Information... or Can Everyone Just Shut Up For A Moment Some Of Us Are Trying To Think. It's not a narrative. It's about stuff. Some of it is stuff I've discussed on stage. Some of it isn't.

It'll be a thing you can hold in your hand in June next year...

There. I've said it.

@mightytonka said...

I'll crack on with chapter one, when....

Martin Ingram said...

I am excited too and want to know nothing more about it until I can read it for myself. I dont like spoilers.

Pip said...

Look forward to it.

The important question arising from the cover though is this: are those Adidas SL72 trainers and, if so, do you (like me) wear them because they're what Dave Starsky wore in Starsky and Hutch? (Visual evidence)

Amazon might not have a photo of the cover but they are taking pre orders for the book. So crack on with writing it so I can read it on holiday in the summer

Matthew Stubbs said...

Fantastic news! I might only get you to sign this one once, instead of thrice though.

Steve said...

June next year! I want a copy now, looks finished enough to me, roll em out for Christmas!

Maddie said...

Hurray! I hope for your sake this one is free of any getting-shut-in-an-attic, attacked-by-a-creationist, waking-up-hungover-at-Heathrow-armed-with-just-a-passport type mishaps!!

Excellent pre-cursor to the tour....great summer reading and no doubt guffawing whilst others read their boring serious stuff (not that having time to think ISN'T serious I hasten to add).

Hoping for an unabridged audio version too

Your tiny sentences seem a little overworked. Whatever happened to the great radio show you did? With Danielle and Martin?

Steve Bousfield said...

I've heard this before "another great way of not-writing-a-book" , so where you travelling to this time?

Dave Gorman said...

@Anonymous I always find it odd when people ask a question like that. If you'd listened to it, you'd know what happened to it!

But, seeing as you ask: http://www.gormano.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/absolutely-november-4th.html

So I can bring a copy to get signed at the Symphony Hall Birmingham next November then, yes?

Matthew Tillett said...

Before you start, I heard there was an undiscovered Dave Gorman in the Yukon who was awaiting your visit...

I love writing about stuff. I am working on writing a million words about stuff on my own blog. So far I am just over half way through it.....

I wish you luck but then you are a clever chap and will no doubt create something Hunky Dory.

Did you know that the universe is almost entirely created of stuff, there is a lot of it about.

I never shat in a hat, but did have a spell of crapping in old paint tins. As you read this it may be too late to put in your book though :-)

Merry Christmas
