Hope the scone recipe works!

Never followed the link on the bottom of your mails before. Couldn't resist saying (again) how much I anjoyed your book. Will read it again when it returns to me (sorry I know I wasn't supposed to lend it but I did get to borrow a good book in return).
63 February 26 2003 at 09:46:51 Fullname: Simon M Email: Comments: Thanks for that, Richard - I thought Torsten was a wonderful character. I'm pretty sure I had something to do with it, but he took on a life of his own (as usual) after a while. I'd buy him a beer.
64 February 25 2003 at 02:29:33 Fullname: Richard W Email: Comments: Did indeed enjoy the second half - a very nice bit of work. Complex, and very simple all at the same time. Loved Torsten to bits, by the way.
65 February 17 2003 at 20:25:42 Fullname: Simon M Email: Comments: Heart -as currently being read by Andy F - is now available as an import via Shocklines.com, for the measly price of $13. I'll be at WHC2003 in Kansas City. Wave a copy at me, and I'll sign it... The link at shocklines is here.

email@example.com Comments: Reading Heart. Brilliant. I have read thousands of books. This is the first time I felt I had to say thank you.
70 January 29 2003 at 09:55:05 Fullname: Simon M Email: Comments: Hmm... let's see now. I give you money, you read the book.
One of the first things I was taught as a fledgling author - money flows to the writer, not away from the writer :)

72 January 17 2003 at 13:04:52 Fullname: Simon M Email: Comments: Heart was launched in some style last night - many thanks to Steve Robinson at Ottakers, Sunderland, for hosting the event, and to everyone who turned up and bought all the books - Steve's ordered more to fulfil any back orders and have some copies in the shop.
And Bryan Talbot came to my book launch! I was so chuffed! And even more chuffed when Steve gave me a copy of Bryan's One Bad Rat signed by the man himself.
73 January 08 2003 at 22:45:23 Fullname: Simon M Email: Comments: It's definitely on! Heart will be launched on 16th Jan at 6pm in Ottakers, in Sunderland. If you need any more info, mail me!

Two bits of news: firstly, Heart is having its rescheduled launch on Jan 16th 2003, at 6pm in Ottakers, Sunderland. Go on, the book's only a fiver.
Secondly, I'm the foreign author of the month at Twilight Tales. I don't feel particularly foreign, but that's them 'Mericans for you... En Passant from the Thy Kingdom Come collection is online there, too. Click here.
