Even so we had a little celebration to wish the book on its way with Brian Thacker, author of the forthcoming Sleeping Around saying some sweet things about the book and even a few readings from some of the folks who were generous enough to contribute. It was a good night as the blurry photography attests, but it's good to know the book shows up well in the dark.
It's been a big week for The Big Trip with the book hitting stores in Australia. Readings are giving it a nice mention which if you're in the UK translates into a Waterstones plug. Lonely Planet have created a snazzy promo site for it that lets you flip through the book's various sections. And unnervingly Amazon have a few used copies already - I guess some folks buy and then sell it immediately.
