It’s going to be exciting, I’m looking forward to it.
And, one more thing:
Now it’s exactly one year ago, that my book was published. What an exciting year it’s been. And it seems the story is not over yet, the book is still selling well, and for this I’m ever so thankful to you, my dear readers. And in november I will travel to Serbia to promote the Serbian version.
There are so many people who made this all happen, and who dsreve all my gratitude.
But today I think its time to thank myself, or to be more precise: my younger self from thirty years ago. I am thankful that I kept at it, that I stuck with it, and that all the stupide little insecurities didn’t stop me. I am thankful that this music and this scene stayed with me all my life, and made it so much richer. I’m glad it wasn’t merely one crazy summer. I’m thankful to you and your nutty friends for giving me stories to tell.
Thanks for your curiosity, Tobi. Cheers!
