The final chapter

With e-luv drifting into the low 200,000s on Amazon and no longer on the shelves of most shops, it seems the right time to bring your favourite blog to an end.
While I have been disappointed with sales, it's been brilliant having a book out and casually dropping into every conversation that I'm a published author.
It's meant I've got another book deal and, at last, an agent. Friday Project have been great to work with and one day, there may well be a sequel - but not yet.
The best part has definitely been the comments people like Timbo, Caroline, Julia, Ms Melancholy, Rex, NWM, the Clares, Debi, Dinah, Fwengebola, Amy, Donna etc have left on this blog. And the emails I've had from the few who read e-luv.
So buy Caroline's book. Buy Biffo's book. But more importantly, if you haven't read it, buy MY book.
There are plenty of copies available.
I'll be trying the blog experiment again with my next book - if you want to know where to find it, email me at and I'll let you know when it starts. As a special bonus, here's a picture of me and Mrs Roberts.
I must go now, before I get too emotional. Bye.

Best video ever.

While researching for my next book (ie, looking for ideas to steal), I came across this fantastic footage of clips taken from 1980s dating videos. I felt compelled to share it with you.

Person of the Week

Meet Arianne Sherine, who is a proper writer for the telly, including the second series of 'Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps'. She wrote to sat that she loved e-luv, calling it "hugely entertaining and eminently readable". She went on to say that she laughed out loud several times, which is rare for her.
And THEN she called me "immensely talented". I like Arianne. She could well become my new best friend.
