So, here's the thing! Let's talk about typos - typographical errors. I mean - come on! Who's ever read a book without a typo? Answers on a postcard to . . . Is there such an animal? I've just finished a book by a well-known author and there was at least a baker's dozen of typos. So, if the traditionally published books are still riddled with typos - what hope for the rest of us? Yes, I know - proofread, proofread, proofread - and when you've done that, get someone else to proofread. Yep, done all of that, seen the DVD, wearing the T-shirt and yet . . . those typos still get through. Humans are just imperfect beings, this human most of all. But . . . at least my typos aren't featured HERE!
I know, you're thinking: Who's that good-looking guy? Well, the wife has nearly finished my bust. She's thinking of throwing me out of bed and putting this on the pillow beside her instead, and who could blame her? Not I!
Now, if you were wondering where my plot ideas come from - wonder no more. The wife has revealed my well-kept secret - I have a pole inside my head instead of a brain!
As you can see, the pole is a space-saving device and leaves plenty of room for ideas to accumulate and mature like vintage cheese or wine!
If you're interested in replacing your brain with one of these poles, please send another postcard to . . .
Anyway, I've waffled enough for today, but my new book 'Through a Glass Darkly' (Parish & Richards 10) will be published in two weeks time.
