American Book Pros, Brace Yourselves

How funny is it that the very day Sarah writes about authors being nice or not so nice, Lord Jeffrey Archer is back in the news? In his first television interview after having served two years in jail for a perjury conviction, Archer spoke to the BBC about his future plans: “I’m not taking any interest in politics. I’m not involved in politics in any way. My life is in writing now.” He gives a few more details into his personal life to Observer readers in a column about how he spent his week: running a nine-minute mile before breakfast, buying an iron bridge for his backyard, and preparing for the publication of False Impression. “They tell me that they’ve had requests for me to do everything from Celebrity Big Brother to the Today programme,” he writes. “We settle for Andrew Marr and Richard and Judy… On Thursday I did a podcast interview, but not until my younger son, James, had explained to me what an iPod is.” False Impression will be published in the U.S. any day now; the St. Martin’s website doesn’t mention any tour dates, but he could always surprise you!
