It's a great book. If I can get through to some sales rep bloke, I'm buying twenty for my Society...

A secret society of tiny people who have developed far beyond our own primitive state!

Hmmmmmm I wonder...

Ronnie

Bought your book on Tuesday night in Waterstones and was most impressed. The text, the epitaphs and Pol Cavin's illustrations strike the exactly the right note! Have been showing it to all the other groups I'm involved in and have even been stopped by people on the train this morning when I've been reading it to ask about it. Hopefully that will drum up trade!

Cheers

What can I say? A humble thank you.

So, could the posters read: "Better than aftershave ... atractive strangers pounced on me as soon as I produced the book from my anorak pocket"?

If you give us your script with 'Audience laughs here' points highlighted, we'll see what we can do.... :)

I'll actually need to manage to get in contact with the "hardest man in the world to reach EVER" before I can even get 20 copies.

You'd think this would be an easy job. Here, look. I have money. Take it. Go on.... ::):

Strangely, I'm missing your book launch because I'd already agreed to go to ANOTHER book launch. How weird is that? Two book launches I want to go to, on at exactly the same time. What are the chances of that happening?
