I’ve found a hotel in Leicester that will allow cancellation as late as 24 hours before the arrival date. Virtually every hotel and inn in the city is already booked – when I made the decision, there were only two rooms available at that hotel for the lowest price.
I locked it in.
I don’t know how this is going to happen, but I’m not going to worry about it, now. I’m about finished with the last essay for KING’S GAMES: A Memoir of Richard III, “Who Did What and When.” Once I’ve got the Table of Contents straightened out, I’ll add a preview page here on the site. I expect to finish formatting for a proof copy before the end of the month.
I decided to set up the book in the basic format used for my Yale Shakespeare collection: the text of the play, followed by essays and appendices. The whole idea is to make the material accessible to folks who aren’t necessarily up on the history. Who knows? It may actually turn out to be a reference and teaching tool.
Somehow, I’ve got to figure out a huge, exciting launch.
My heart is pounding ten miles a minute. (Does that use up calories?)
I’ll worry about travel arrangements closer to the first of the year.
