Hi all. There's been some disquieting news on the house front. Apparently it's more buggered than we first thought. Accordingly the cost of getting it fixed (which was already pretty high) has gone up.

Please consider this an appeal, but not a demand. Those of you who know me well will know how I feel about doing this. I'm hoping there are some of you who don't yet have a copy of my book who will buy it, thus putting around £1 in the kitty for getting the house fixed. I'm further hoping that you'll pass this request on and tell your friends. If any of you know anyone famous, please let them know what I'm trying to do. At the end of the day, the money will probably become available once we've gone through the legal battle with our original surveyor, but the house needs fixing *NOW*, and now is when we desperately need the funds to do it. We've got guarantees of some money, but now that the price has gone up we're not sure it'll be enough, so please, if you haven't already, get yourself a copy of the book (entertain your kids, it's good, honest!), and if you have, tell your friends, tell your local school, tell your library, anything really. Feel free to link back to this post if you think it will help.

The book is available at: http://tinyurl.com/czb5fn (thanks Megabitch, I'm not with it today!)

Thank you.

Yes, it can be ordered direct from Lulu. I do get a smidge more if it comes directly from Lulu, but Lulu take forever to deliver. Amazon and Play and the rest tend to hold stock (in some odd way in which they don't have to actually pay for it up front).
