Good afternoon to this fine and might I say squishingly sexy forum!

I have not been physically around in this forum for some time now (due to health problems) but I have always been around in some way or another. So before I proceed to the more dubious part of my post, I'd like to say a HI THERE I'M STILL HERE HOW YA DOING and hope you are all well. I still love so much about this forum and want to thank you for perking me up on the hard days and especially Fryphile to you for what should be an award-winning thread (in fact I'll make up an awards ceremony now and declare you Thread Maintainer of the Year as well as Funniest Forumer....congrats!) in the Fry a Day. Once you're hooked you're hooked, and I don't want to know a world without it quite frankly!!

As some of you may or may not know, I dabble in a bit of writing here and there, even sometimes brandishing the label 'writer' in job description fields (preferring it over 'failed filing clerk on long term sick leave' which is not so peachy) and it seems through one thing and another that I have managed to get myself published. As I'm having to do a lot of promotion myself I'm looking at different ways to get the word out and it seemed natural to me to offer you the once in a lifetime chance to consider whether your life might be made marginally more exciting by owning a copy of my bundle of ideas and wonder that is my book. It is available in a variety of locations....

Obviously this is not a good time to be campaigning for anyone to part with their cash so I don't want to push it too hard. Alternatively, you can write a review on amazon (there is a plot summary to go on!) regardless of whether you've read it or not, or even mentioning the link on Twitter with the hashtag #thetower and that would help me out just as much :).

I want to say thank you to those of you who have already sent for my book and everyone who has supported me because it means a lot. Thanks guys. *hugs*.

Anyway, I hope you're having a good day and hopefully I'll be here a lot more to take part in all the wonderful conversations and squeeing here.

Lots of love

I've heard whispers as to the existence of this book. As Tony said to Control, "It's nice to have it confirmed by you." I hope it's a smash and it sells billions of copies and Stephen asks for your autograph!

I think of myself as someone who is filled with love, whose only purpose in life was to achieve love. - Stephen Fry

Debs, you are now a published author! & That's definetely something to be very proud of. ^___^
I'll be sure to get my hands on a copy once I gather some moneys together. From the description it sounds brilliant.

You should be proud, I would be shouting from the rooftops. I think that I may order a copy this weekend as a gift for my sister, I think she would like it very much. And once she likes something she tells everyone.

Just ordered.

Will be a few weeks though, so review will have to wait a while.

Oddly, as a non superstitious person, I used to think it was a positive thing to see 12.34 on clocks. As if 'everything is proceeding in the correct order. What a muppet.
Anyway, the £12.34 amazon price just reminded me of that.
