Cover of Lily Poole

the cure for cancer is here

Monday, 4 July 2016

I’d one of those conversations today. Mrs Kerr, who’s about ninety, whispered that John McGinlay had died of the drink.

That’s great I said, because I thought he’d died of cancer.

Well, here’s another whispered conversation, Lily Poole is out and about, and you should be getting your copy pretty soon. I know I’ve been saying that for two years, but I write fiction and tend towards the fabulous and really you can’t believe anything I say. But I’ve signed a number of copies and sent them back to Unbound. They should be sending those to you. I know some of you have pledged for drinks and a party. Everyone is invited, whether you’ve pledged or not. It will be in Dalmuir and not London. That suits some people and not others. But I can pull rank here and say, who was it that wrote the fffnnn book? I hope you enjoy the book and I hope that you too die of drink and not the cancer. Cheers.

cheers Ewan, looking forward to your magnus opus again, but now we're all but different men and the book we once saw, rhyme somewhat with jaw and fling in a jig and we'll add a little dig, my da's bigger than yours.
