I am seriously freaking out about the US trip - I still have not heard whether or not Tauris/Palgrave are going to contribute to my expenses. If they don't, I probably cannot afford to do the trip on my own resources and am going to have to apologize profusely to all the kind folk who have arranged gigs for me and offered to put me up. I just can't go into debt on this one speculatively - I will sell a pile of books and CDs, and I will get what I can in the way of interviewing gigs while I am over there - but if publishers won't cough up something, the math just does not work.

The whole thing makes me feel so useless and so like a failure; it also makes me even more inclined to hate George W. Bush and Osama Bin Laden for making travel that crucial bit more expensive and stopping me seeing the people I love.
