Newsletter Issue 2 - November 2008
Mother-in-Law, Son-in-Law is now available to buy worldwide from the biggest bookshop in the world, Amazon.
You can buy it here for the price of a round in the pub, and you get free postage and packing as well. My Client Services Rep told me last week that the pre-orders considering the book hadn't even been released were staggering, which bodes well.
The first page in the book is a specified dedication page so you can write a personal message when giving the book as a gift.
Here's Chapter 1:
My wife doesn’t understand me.
But my mother-in-law does.
My wife doesn’t want to f*ck me.
But my mother-in-law does.
My wife is always off having ‘down time’ with her secret life.
My mother-in-law’s got a secret life too.
The book has been written as a literary alternative to Viagra (only much cheaper and works time and time again.) It's not a high-faluting arty- farty heavyweight book, it's easy to read and hopefully entertaining as well as arousing. If you order it from Amazon now you'll get it in plenty of time for Christmas. Anyone who has helped specifically with this book is thanked in the acknowledgements section.
There's a new Fleur De Lys Blog, and we've now got two fan pages on Facebook, one for Fleur De Lys Publishing and one for Mother-in-Law, Son-in-Law. Please feel free to join so that you can do your bit to further the cause of the punk rock of publishing, New Publishing which is sweeping away the old industry with Print on Demand.
The Fleur De Lys website launched last month now has an updated AuthorBios page where you can read a bit about my past.
Words Aloud at The Lescar, Sheffield
On Tuesday 25th November it is the last night ever of Sheffield's premier open-mic night, Words Aloud. The organisers are moving onwards to different projects. I will be performing an excerpt from Mother-in-Law, Son-in-Law on stage in front of a live audience (as opposed to a dead one.)
A word from the Fleur De Lys PA, Honey Higginbotham
Hi, It's me again. The shot on the left is of me and the Coffee Machine Rep, Kevin. He's a good mate of mine and lets me try all the new coffee samples when they arrive at Fleur De Lys HQ. We're partial to a bit of Union Hand Roast atm.
As Kev's always good for a laugh, we set up this shot to demonstrate how boring and out of date is that hoary old chestnut of old men lusting after young women. Even though JCT is a narcissistic drama queen at times, I'm with her on this 50 something older woman / 20 something younger man thing. After all, mathematically speaking, 29 goes into 58 a lot more times than 58 goes into 29...
Finally, one of you readers last month told JCT off for letting me loose on the world, saying that I "let the company down" with my "slack attitude".
What is far more entertaining is that another twelve of you emailed JCT asking for my email address.
Sigh...maybe soon. Hmmm, actually, you at the back there, I quite like the look of you...
