to those expressing interest in M.R.'s sig. file
I have a copy of my book in my hands!
My publisher sent it: apparently new authors become so anxious re the actuality of things that publishers think it necessary to assuage said anxieties by producing Hard Evidence.
:-)
It's not released till 1st August, and I have no understanding at all of how I have a copy of a book that won't be in the stores for over two months - but there it is.
I shall do my best to take a Webcam photo of me holding it, just for fun! As advised previously re something else, though, don't hold yer breath ...

That's wonderful!
When do you get to thank "all the little people?"

Do you know, GG, I remember laughing like anything at the poor unfortunate bloke who kept reminding himself to thank all the little people and then forgot to thank the really important ones - but I can't remember where I saw it! Musta been an awards night of some kind, obviously ... but ... ? :-|
Here are some teeny pics: I believe they are definitely large enough for the porpoise. The middle one is to show you that it really is a book, and not just a mock-up.

This calls for a celebration!

I can only try to imagine how thrilling is. Enjoy! May you be rich and infamous or reclusive or whatever your heart desires!

Tenks moch!

Sorry to be so obsessed about it; but all my friends and rellies live inter-State or overseas. No-one nearby to celebrate with.
Our fault, as I've written about ...
I shall shut up about it, now.

It's because I'm totally solitary that I'm so hopeless at so many things. No-one to tell me I'm being a total twit, you know?
Thank-you so much for your lovely words: you are a delightful group of people.

I just figured out who you remind me of: Dame Judi Dench. I'm listening to her sing "Send in the Clowns" right now.
