authors & reviewers wanted

"If you don't like this book, you're an idiot."
Sandra's Husband


I can't exactly put that on a cover, now can I? But it looks like I'll be signing a deal, and that my book will be released in April.

So if you're interested in reading it and maybe saying it wasn't complete rubbish, that would be nice. Email me!

Even without reading it I'm quite willing to say it isn't complete rubbish. Who said I couldn't do "nice"?

Cor blimey! First a publishing deal and now a bloody miracle!

Did I use cor blimey properly? I'm trying to learn how to swear in British.

JamesO said...

No, to do it properly you've got to put on an unconvincing cockney accent first (try modelling yourself on Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins) and say:

'Cor blimey, strike a light, me old father!'

Then you know how to swear in British.

Alternatively, favour the use of words such as 'bugger' and 'bollocks', preferably muttered under your breath, but occasionally shouted out loud in previously quiet places.

And if you want stuff read, I'm always happy to oblige. Just don't expect anyone to know who I am when I give it the thumbs up;}#

Kate, that's so hilarious! I'll have to email you to explain why, but it's got me splitting a gut!

Sandra Ruttan said...

And James, we could make up a monikor for you... The Greatest Unknown Mystery Reader.

Or the 7th Bearded Wonder of the world...

I'd help you out but I'm less known the "The Greatest Unknown Mystery Writer."

Nice husband's blurb. Though it sounds better with effing in fron of idiot.

"This is even better than the Bunions International best-seller The Oslo Incident and that's not saying much!"

I'd give ya a blurb, but coming from me, it means absolutely nothing.

M. G. Tarquini said...

Oh. and MAZOLTOV!

Sandra Ruttan said...

mg, if you're speaking Bunion we need a translator!

James Goodman said...

I fall into the same boat as M.G., but congrats on the deal none the less.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Thanks James! And thanks for dropping by my little monument to irreverence.

rj, it does sound a whole effin' lot better. I was going to try to sound less like a trucker and more like a librarian but what are New Year's resolutions for, if not to fuck up by mid-January?

An official Bunion blurb might actually hurt your sales, but I would love to read it. =)

And CONGRATS!!!

R.J. Baker said...

Hey, I think librarians are sexy even if they DO talk like truck drivers. Actually, maybe more so.
