I get so many Tweets each day asking the same questions and it has become impossible to answer them all. I occasionally try and then I look up and an hour has passed and I’m supposed to be doing something else.
So here is the latest news on release dates for the 3 projects I’ve worked on so far in 2012.
On Wednesday March 21st the first episode of Fully Charged is released on
On Thursday 19th April, News from Gardenia will launch.
The delay is due to problems with the printers, we planned to launch the book on 20th March but due to my availability and the fact that the printers ran out of ink or something, it’s had to be delayed. I’m really sorry about this to all the people who’ve supported the book, please be patient, it is happening and it will be a lovely book. The delay also gives us a bit of time to finesse the first edition, it’s going to be very posh. While I’m on the subject of my book I’ll reveal a bit of very good news I had about it a while back. A man who works at a proper old school publisher, Faber, who will be distributing the book really likes it and wants to give it a big promotion at bookshops in May.
The first edition is a hardback, then there’ll be a ‘trade paperback’ version in the bookshops and on Amazon etc. Then later this year there’ll be a standard paperback version. There will also be an audiobook version on audioboo and an e-book version and it will work on Kindles, it will be available on Amazon.co.uk and eventually on Amazon.com.
Finally, and without doubt the most asked question I get on the Twitters, Red Dwarf X. When is this released? Well, to start off, we still have one day’s shoot looming, there were numerous scenes and little fiddly bits we didn’t manage to do within the very tight time frame we were working on so we still haven’t finished the series. As you may be able to imagine, getting all four of us in one place at the same time in costume and ready to create quality smeg has not been easy, but we’ve wangled it.
Once we’ve done this, although no official broadcast date has been set my best guess is late September, early October this year on Dave in the UK. Not long after also on iTunes, on Netflix and on loads of PBS stations in the USA, loads of other countries including Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
As soon as I have a confirmed date, I will of course Tweet and post it like a loon.
