A photo a day countdown, day 3

Another shot, this time we're in Don's living room. I ought to tell you that most of the photos that I post here you won't see anywhere else because they aren't suited for the press. And brace yourself: tomorrow we go psychedelic!

A photo a day countdown, day 1

I've decided to do a photo a day countdown to the book signing in Wolverhampton on Friday. Yes, I know that on the Waterstones website it says that Don is the author of "Look Wot I Dun" and that he alone will be signing books in Wolverhampton on Friday and Walsall on Saturday, but don't you believe it! I'm still the author and I WILL be at both signings!

Anyway, some of you have already seen the photo of the day as I uploaded it to Twitter some days ago. I'm a Twitter person, so you'll find much more stuff about the book and about me there than here or on Facebook. My Twitter account is:

Like the rest of the new promo photos it is my daughter Tea who shot it.

Promo shoot

As Omnibus Press doesn't have a budget for promotion, Don and I had to do our own promotion shoot for the biography. Tuesday I therefore went to Silkeborg in Denmark, where Don lives, to do some photos. I had my daughter Tea with me and she shot the photos.

By chance our editor Chris Charlesworth had sent an advance copy of the book to Don and we used it in some of the shots. I didn't get an advance copy as I'm "just" the author and as such not treated very well. I've been an author for almost 30 years and I've always had great working relationships with publishers world wide, so it's weird that this particular company has decided to totally ignore me. Seven years of hard work writing the actual biography doesn't seem to count for anything, so I have to buy my advance copy at Waterstones in Wolverhampton next week like everyone else!

Anyway, the photo that you see here we are probably not going to send to the press, but I love it anyway. A bird flew by just as Tea shot the photo and Don is watching the birdie, haha!

Mød Don Powell i Danmark/Meet Don Powell in Denmark

Jeg har den glæde at kunne fortælle jer, at Don og jeg holder et lille foredrag på Musikbiblioteket i den gamle banegård, Østre Stationsvej 33, 5000 Odense C., tirsdag den 22. oktober kl. 19.

Jeg snakker lidt om min biografi "Look Wot I Dun", som jeg har skrevet om Don, og som udkommer på det engelske Omnibus Press forlag den 14. oktober, og Don taler om sit liv. Herefter vil der blive mulighed for at stille spørgsmål.

Arrangementet varer ca. 1½ time, det er gratis - og så er der mulighed for at købe øl og vand i pausen!

P.S. Vi kan desværre ikke sælge biografien på Musikbiblioteket, men hvis I allerede har bestilt den via, så tag den med, og vi signerer den!

Now you can meet Don Powell and me in my hometown Odense in Denmark, namely in the Music Library, Oestre Stationsvej 33, 5000 Odense C., Tuesday the 22nd of October at 7 p.m.

Here I'll talk a bit about the biography "Look Wot I Dun" that I wrote about Don and Don is going to talk about his life. You'll be able to ask us questions afterwards. There is no admission fee.

The event is going to last about 1½ hours incl. a short intermission where you'll be able to buy soft drinks and beer, and although we won't be able to sell the biography at the Music Library, we'll be happy to sign it, if you bring it along. You can already pre-order copies at

Book signings

Don is going to sign copies of "Look Wot I Dun" in the Waterstones book shops in Wolverhampton and Walsall in the UK on respectively the 4th and the 5th of October. These signings are early opportunities to purchase my biography about Don as the publication date remains as October 14th.

Originally only Don had been asked by the publishing company to do the book signings (which everybody found very strange, me being the author of the biography), but then some of you wrote the company and spoke your mind and that helped. I've now been told that I can join Don and participate in the book signings. Thank you so much for your help and support in this. It means a lot to me and hopefully I'll now be able to meet some of you in either Wolverhampton or Walsall!

At the moment Don and I are planning our own book signings and talks/Q&A sessions in Denmark and maybe Omnibus Press is going come up with more book signings in the UK as well. Dates to follow…
