More book pics, a naughty video and a cautionary tale!
An ex-colleague settles down with my book
Nik receives his copy!
JJ spots my book in WHSmiths Maidstone
And it's sold out in WH Smiths Malvern (thanks Xuxanna)
And I couldn't possibly condone people doing this! ;) (though I did grin, a lot, when I was sent this video!). The suspect shall remain nameless...
Thanks to everyone who's sent me a photo or promised to go into town with their camera - it's hugely exciting.
One word though - if you're going to try and take a photo of someone reading my book in a public place I recommend you take the photo surreptitiously rather than ask the person's permission...
A few days ago I told you that a friend of mine saw someone reading my book on the train to East London. Well he saw her again today. This is the text he sent me...
"So, I saw the same girl on the train today, she's still reading your book! I chose my moment, wriggled past a few passengers, went up to her and explained that 'I know the author', 'it's her first novel' and 'she's very excited' and that I'd like to send her a picture of someone actually reading her book and would she mind?
And this girl just looked at me, didn't say anything for what must've been 5-10 seconds, and then eventually, with a completely deadpan expression on her face, responded, "That's the worst chat up line I've ever heard.." and just walked off."
