  5. Haha a fantastic cover Jen! I've just popped it on my Amazon wishlist (although I will, of course, be purchasing it from an Independent Bookshop and suggesting that the Booksellers purchase a whole lot more copies because it's a brilliant and hilarious read!

  8. This is so EXCITING!!!! Look, a copyeditor, writing four—read FOUR!—exclamation points!

    I can't wait to own this! Well-done, Jen.

    PS. We are pathetic. We get so many weird things and do you think we can think of ones to send you? No. We suck!!

  13. I spent many years in the book trade before escaping. People who used to think 'Black Books' was a comedy don't know the half of it, do they? You've inspired me to do a blog entry based on some of my favourites, and those reported by colleages. I'll probably work on it tonight. I wish you the best of luck with the book. I'll try and make sure my former colleagues display it prominently when it comes out.
