My dearest darlings,

I’m pleased to a punch-like extent to report that #Sonnets has crossed the 80% mark. I also got engaged this weekend, so it’s been a heady few days. Anyway, the printing presses lie ready and the sonnet-reading public slavers with anticipation, so I must continue my quest to get this deeply daft opus into your hands. To tide you over till then, here’s a sonnet I wrote for the British Comedy Guide website:

Bit of fun, right? If you wish to expedite the book’s release, feel free to proselytise your mates, bully aged relations, or write your local MP. You could even, if you so choose, upgrade your existing pledge to get ahold of such tasty treats as an Ollie Mann print or a bespoke sonnet from yours truly. In any case, I consider all 272 of you heroes. Thanks again for your support and for helping to bring a little more silliness (and, hopefully, laughter) into a world that needs it.

Yours ever-fixedly,
