Moron to Moron is a New Zealand bestseller!

I just got back from a couple of weeks in New Zealand, hanging out with fellow moron Tama Pugsley and plugging Moron to Moron left, right and centre as we cycled from Auckland to Wellington on a shonky Book Bike Tour. The NZ Herald ran a travel profile on me, and I went on television for the very first time. (Also, Tama and I made it onto the front page of the Taupo Times!) During mid-June, Moron made it onto the Nielsen Weekly Bestsellers List (for the week ending 15 June 2013). Here is the list:

1. Jamie's 15-Minute Meals - Jamie Oliver
2. The Fast Diet: The Secret of Intermittent Fasting: Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, Live Longer - Mimi Spencer & Michael Mosley
3. Is it Just Me? - Miranda Hart

... so I'm up there with Bear Grylls, Rod Stewart and some guy whose cat is plotting to kill him. What an exciting moment! It probably won't last, but for now it's my 15 frames of fame, and it's pretty zang.
