First Among Sequels: Guest Post from Please Allow Me Inc.

Greetings! The Gibbous House Man - as the author of its sequel, No Good Deed - is known here at Please Allow Me Inc. (Home of Fakevertising® - Never Knowingly Oversold), has kindly allowed me to craft this update concerning his latest meisterwerk. This is no chore - as, of course, No Good Deed is first among sequels as far as our marketing efforts here at PAM Inc. are concerned. Glesgae Jakey (a strange nom-de-travail, we admit) has walked the length and breadth of Cricklewood wearing a sandwich board very similar to the one shown. We believe this has garnered two promises of a pledge and some loose change. Sometimes the old fashioned ways are the best.

In addition, we have several irons in the fire, as Cynthia Finch-Harewood, Rights and Tea-Tray Management here at Please Allow Me Inc, has developed an unusual phobia concerning the ironing of pleated skirts, whilst insisting on wearing such attire to the office. Be that as it may, Please Allow Me Inc's efforts are ceaseless and we continue to go forward in all directions in our efforts to ensure the full funding of that First Among Sequels, No Good Deed.

That should do it, what bilge we have to write, we marketeers...

Cynthia, you can stop taking the shorthand now...
