Fortunately for me it's the mam who has to make the decisions on the thousands. The living room looks vaguely like a library Laughing


I wonder how long it'll be before The Works is selling Shout for the Dead for the disturbingly cheap price of ?2.99
That's what they've been selling Cry of the Newborn for, for several months now. Shocked

I know! There's so much shame, I'm thinking I shouldn't have jetted half way round the world for a holiday of a lifetime so that I could have camped outside Waterstones throughout December just in case! Wink

Are you actually being sarcastic? I mean, are you actually saying that had the chance occured, you'd have jetted off anyway? Shocked

Now much as I abhor Felice Koroyan I have to take a favourite word of hers and use it in relation to you: HERESY!!! Evil or Very Mad lol

Erm, James? Your pages are lying to me. Apparently the last book you wrote was Cry of the Newborn...

All's well again in Max's house, as the book arrived yesterday. Although the postman didn't ring the bell and left the package under the side door mat. As I left the house this morning to buy a paper I almost tripped over it!!! I thought a giant rat had secreted itself under the mat away from the wind!

Laughing That would have to be one hell of a rat, Max.

Postmen are irritating like that though. Mine did similar with a parcel I got the other day only it was half in, half out of the letterbox, AGAIN!!

Anyway, since i've gone slightly off-topic... I trust you'll enjoy said secreted rat. Razz

I've just ordered my own rat from amazon. The postage they put on books now is crippling!

Just reading the book at the moment and loving it!

I really like the concept, it's pretty big!

Won't say more until i'm done with it and a spoiler post has been made.

My copy arrived on Saturday and just wanted to say wow, first time I've seen my name in print in a book.

Thanks to James for that.

A pleasure, malop... and thanks for all your help.

As to the pages, I'll get onto them and update asap, thanks for the nudge.
