Here is the news

FREE SAMPLE - Any minute now, the first quarter of e-luv will be downloadable in a variety of formats. Free. It's part of Friday Project's plan to be the first publisher in the entire universe to let readers try before they buy. I think it's a good idea - I download a song or two from a CD, and if I like them, I'll generally buy it.

E-LUV: THE FILM - I have a meeting with a producer next week - I sent him a copy of the book a few months ago and now he wants to talk. More news on this as I have it.

E-LUV: THE SEQUEL - I have had millions (well, six to be exact) of emails in the past couple of weeks asking if there is going to be a follow-up to their favourite internet romance novel. The answer is that I don't know. The plot is done and I've vaguely planned out the chapters, but the motivation isn't really there currently.

THE FRIDGE - I have managed to borrow some money, which is good news for the fridge. Soon it will be filled with papayas, which are the finest fruits known to man. I could live on the stuff - really.

TIMBO - It is approaching Timbo's payday and as soon as it arrives, he will be the proud owner of a brand new copy of e-luv. Hurrah!

X FACTOR - My wife, who is American, informs me that Ray, the annoying twat who inexplicably hasn't been kicked off X Factor yet, is a dead ringer for the Big Boy Restaurant mascot.

Better to look like Big Boy than Ronald McDonald. Though both - in fact all - parties concerned have appalling dress sense..

Oh he really does! Tee hee.
I can't stand Ray and his cheeky chappy swing. Blerch.
Ben's voice makes me a bit wibbly tho', lovely smoky sound. Leona is gob smackingly good, but just not what I like to listen to.

(I realise that you did not at any time ask for my opinion on x-factor. oops.)

Anon - what's wrong with looking like Ronald McDonald? It works for me.
Sara - as you didn't ask for my opinion either, I must inform you that I find Leona earthshatteringly dull, especially when she shows off how many notes she can cover in a short period of time. It's Eton Road I like. I know I shouldn't, as boy bands are generally ghastly, but for some reason, I like them. Ben's OK and the Macdonalds are..well, why ARE they still there?

LOL - he does! Oh and I've a friend who looks like Ray and now he looks like Big Boy and it is sooooo going to annoy him. Fabulous! Louis is destroying Eton Road. Next you'll be telling me that you don't love Simon Cowell ... ooohhhhh I lurve him!

Great news on the film - I hope that you can wangle yourself a role in it.

Thanks for the fridge update. You know how it worries me.
