Incidentally I had a peek at Amazon this am. They are twinning Marie's book with Alastair Campbell's Blair Years. Possible subtitle Men Who Think They Are Gods Behaving Badly... Are they joking? If so it's quite a funny for a robot!


  1. I just did a little dance at my desk!

    Of course, I am now going to have to take you to court for breaking the embargo, think of all the poor children who might have the ending spoilt for them.

  2. Embargo?

    I thought that was something to do with bad backs?

  3. Just bought 'Gods Behaving Badly' this Fri evening. Looking forward to reading it-unfortunately not around to attend the book bash this coming Weds :o(

  4. Well I hope you enjoy it all the same! (If not, don't tell anybody...)

  5. Mr Lindroos loved yr book Marie...He phoned this am.

  6. The Gods have been kind and I might be able to make it for the book bash this Weds (Yippee!). And yes I'll bring the book along and get it signed

  7. Dude with an american accent just called to ask if we had signed copies.

    (We also had our book dealer mate Tim e-mail to say he thought the book was one of the best he's seen for ages in terms of production. He only ever buys stuff he thinks is going to be worth wonga in the future.)

    Said they would be available from tomorrow.

    We chatted a little and it turns out his train from Brussels arrives at Waterloo at 6:30 tomorrow evening so he's going to drop by too...the dealer vultures are circling Marie!
