Hello Ladles and Jellyspoons.
I stumbled across BMN when commenting on a book cover and decided to join.
I wrote my first (demand) book Inn Keeping with Mr Fawlty which is an anecdotal humorous memoir of my time in the hotel / hospitality trade. The book has sold well in the UK and has had some success in the States. I am told that Americans love Fawlty Towers on which the book is based.
I have just finished my first draft of the follow up book on the same theme to be called Keeping Inn with Basil. This has now reached my editor. I am hoping that I can get a mainstream publisher to take both books. I never really had the opprotunity to sell the first book because my hotel was under offer (I have had more than enough) and so the book was rushed out 'on demand'..then the offer for the Elizabethan manor fell through and book two emerged.
I maybe in the wrong place but I am hoping to get some advice and or contacts for the second book. Any advice would be welcome.
