I arrived at the bookshop today to a postcard [see left] from Dickon Edwards. It's of the cover of a book we have in the shop at the moment, and he'd spied it at the British Library exhibition and posted it to us. How nice is that? We love our customers, yes yes. Thank you also people on Twitter who have popped by Ripping Yarns to say hello - we like that too! [Especially Jane who brought me cake!]
Over on Metafilter, MrFTBN made this Garfield comic strip after reading the last 'Weird Things' on this post. It made chuckle lots.
Aaaand, because I just realised I hadn't posted about this on here, I have a literary agent. Hurray! His name is Charlie Campbell, and he works at Ed Victor. He's pretty awesome [but don't tell him I said that]. I'll be popping into their office to sign with them on Thursday.
Finally: keep your eyes peeled as I have some exciting news to share. Not today. Soon soon. Promise. [And, no it's not a radio show on Geordie ninjas - though that would be extremely fabulous]. x
