Fantastic news on the film, congrats

On a related theme, at the Cineworld in Bexleyheath they have a free postcards rack and had loads of Cherub cards in there

Now, must get the next 2 from you as we've fallen behind with them and I love the series so I want to read them!

bollecks, any idea about this... Amazon are selling the Audiobook of the Recruit for £9.99 but are adding on a £1.99 'sourcing fee' making the cost to the customer £11.98.

This sounds very fishy, as if they want to get £11.98 from the customer, but only pay royalties on £9.99 worth of it.

Have you noticed it, and can you explain what it is?

Do a search for ISBN 1844564061 on the site and you'll see what I mean.

Just read this amazing story from cover to cover in one night....I'm talking about this thread!

A thrilling read - how the character evolves from next to nothing and builds up to a success in less than 3 pages! - wow how to start a life story!

I've not read any of the books but maybe I'll ask around and see if I know someone who has - it will be nice to be able to mention your progress as if I knew you! A brilliant read!

p.s. I know Jacqueline Wilson and used to see her once a week (what a bally nice woman, absolutley charming) - that was until about 5 months ago! - I'm guessing there's this brand new kid on the block giving her a run for her money and keeping her busy looking after her No.1 spot!!

Best of luck with the next books

Hey maybe we might see one of those cryptic dedications in one of your books one day!....."to DVDF and all who posted" - I'd love to be able to say that I knew what it meant for once!

This is Amazon's 'hard to source' charge. Basically, my publisher bogged up the production and the audio book has only just been released. As Amazon couldn't source it they slapped on a £1.99 charge.

Hopefully the charge will dissapeer when the book appears in the warehouse. If it doesn't I'll mention it to the sales people at my publisher.

For those interested, Man vs Beast has been released now and is available on Amazon and in all the usual bookshops.

Robert,
Mrs F was in Milton Keynes yesterday and noticed you are doing a book signing (fame indeed!). My son subsequently said he would love to go along, but Mrs F didn't see what time you are going to be there. Could you confirm that you will be and what time you are due to be there?
Thanks

Edit: Just found that it is 16:00 from www.cherubcampus.com.

I'm going up to do an in school event in the afternoon and then we have a signing in the store afterwards for about 30-40 minutes.

Because of the weekday timing they're usually quite low key affairs (which is a polite way of saying that quite often no bugger turns up...)

That's handy, my son said yesterday that if he comes along "If it's quite quiet, that would be good so that I can have a good chat with him" :-) Beware, Harry can talk the hind legs off a donkey!

Thanks.

Mrs F pointed out that they don't get out of school until 4:30 on a Thurs, and its a 40 min drive, so they won't be able to make it. Shame. At least your ears will be saved!

You just summed up the reason why after school events are never very successful!

Hopefully I'll catch up with Harry somewhere!

Just to let you know that the book you sent for my nephew James was nabbed by his Dad so he could read it quickly before giving it to his son!
My son took his own copy into school to read and had 6 offers of hard cash, doughnuts and chocolate from his classmates for a read of his advance copy. He resisted!
You have many fans!

Good to hear that he enjoyed it.

Man vs Beast was eighth in the children's fiction charts last week, which is pretty good when you consider that new books by Darren Shan, Jacqueline Wilson, Terry Pratchett and Lemony Snickett plus the official Peter Pan sequel have all been released in the last week or two.

I've caught my publisher's taste for chart positions now and if we can just get a quiet week in March we might get The Fall in the number one spot.

Of course, just by saying this I've guaruanteed the surprise March release of Harry Potter 7...

It's been out of stock for a couple of days (this traumatises me becasue it trashes my sales rank and I hate being behind Darren Shan who is a Tottenham season ticket holder) but it's back in now.

Hope you enjoy!
