Yup, xmas shopping has definitely started. Sold well over 40 copies in Preston yesterday. The Waterstone’s is in a very nice, big old building. Met some interesting people – Chris, Josh, Claire, Emma, Christian, and others – and then adjourned to a local pubbery to spend all the hard-earned but meagre profits.
Was then home in time for x factor. Cher is just so much better than the others – she doesn’t just sing karaoke like the rest, she actually composes original song sections. But it’s all a matter of taste, I suspect. One Direction turned in their first ever credible performance and they have legions of Justin Bieber fans, so might win it. Funny – a lot of people have nicknamed them ‘No Erection’.
Next stop: Waterstone’s Warrington, Saturday 20 Nov, from 11am. That’s where I outsell Terry Pratchett! Number one in the scifi/fantasy charts. Hurrah!
