Hello Everyone – The real Grimly Darkwood here again. I’m pleased to report that the unfortunate commotion of last week has died down nicely. The sprinkler system’s been put back to bed, we’ve had a whip round to pay for the excess on the fire insurance, and if we pass the pot round a few more times, we should just about have enough to settle it. So now we can turn our attention to the official promotional leaflet for The Shop on Peculiar Hill which you can see here on the screen.
As you see, it has impressive quotations from some of our favourite authors and perceptive observations from many of our discerning readers, so all we need now is to get it out there amongst the public and wait for the books to fly off the shelves. Unless they’re the electronic version, in which case they will presumably do whatever electric things do and slide around in their weird sort of way. I’ve never understood electricity but it seems to work all right– remarkable really for something that just sort of sits there and crackles.
Anyway, if you people at home can think of something to do with these flyers – something useful, I mean, those of you sniggering at the back – then you’re more than welcome to download it here as a pdf (whatever that may be): peculiar-flyer-1.pdf
Meanwhile, those of us here in the office will find a home for the rest of them. Now, you might think that time is against us but we’ve made enquiries and there’s a surefire proven way to get all these flyers distributed planet-wide by Christmas.
So the reindeer and the sleigh will be delivered here on Christmas Eve and all leave till after Christmas Day will be cancelled. I shall be Santa Claus of course. Who’s going to volunteer to be gnomes?
