Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores - released today in America and Canada [here's the chance to win a copy!]
Well, hello, American and Canadian types! Today, 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores' can be found in your bookstores! Hurray! I am watching eagerly with binoculars from across the pond. Copies from my lovely American publishers [Overlook], arrived in the post today. They have that excellent new-book smell (the books, not the publishers. Though I'm sure they smell great, too).
This edition contains extra quotes from American and Canadian booksellers, such as:
Customer: If I had a bookstore, I’d make the mystery section really hard to find.
Quite an excellent idea, really! So, North American folk! You can now track down 'Weird Things...', RRP $15. Please do say something totally absurd to the bookseller you buy it from. It keeps us on our toes, you see.
And, because I'm feeling nice today, I'm going to do a giveaway! Everyone who replies to this post will have their name put into a hat, and the name pulled out of that hat will win a signed copy of 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores' (this is open to everyone, everywhere). I'll pick a winner tomorrow (Friday) night [midnight GMT].
