Weird Things.... for Christmas.

'More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops' is finished! Hurrah! Soon it will be illustrated by Greg, and typset and put together and all that jazz. It'll be out in the UK on April 18th 2013.

Yesterday, I spent the day signing books at Waterstones, Tunbridge Wells. I met some very lovely people, ate homemade cookies, and sold a lot of books. Also had a few odd requests. There was a man who talked to me about taxidermy for fifteen minutes, another who said 'Your book looks nice; I'm going to buy it online when I get home,' and a woman who asked me to look after her dog for half an hour, which I did (rather bemusedly). His name was Gumbo, and he was very nice. All in all, a good day!

Most of the books I signed were Christmas presents for people, which reminded me: if any blog readers would like signed books as presents for Christmas (or for themselves), you can buy them in this blog post :). Use the drop down menu to select your postage option (UK, Europe or Rest of the World). If you would like the book dedicated to someone, please use the dedication box.

I've listed the last posting dates at the bottom of this blog post, for books to reach you in time for Christmas.
