Cool cool cool! The book is brilliant.
And I was at school with him and his brother. I've sat on a futon in one or the other's bedroom.
I doubt they remember.

I'll be sure to mention it. That has to be worth at least a free book, no?

I was in his older brother Alex's year, my younger brother Robert was in Edmund's year. King's School, Canterbury. Surname Palmer.
And if that gets you a free book, I'll eat my 'The Hare With Amber Eyes'.
He never sent me a copy.

Reading your blog & notice you have published your novel. Congratulations! Didn't read about how it all came about even though I'm a follower...did I miss something or did you quietly just do it?
I will try to buy a copy even though I haven't an E-reader -if that's possible.
Congrats again!
