Me for 2 also to both. if Graham Reid comes along can he bring me his book I promised to buy but missed. Want signed copies.
A netball game and some rice pudding
Oh dear, now I think I'm afraid of Dr Hay as well.
Please include 2 from here for Wellington - but you probably assumed that.
I'd get Emma to sign her book for me too but I'm too scared of her to ask.
Oh Bart, I'm harmless.
Do you know, Bart, Emma is the sweetest sweetie of all. Truly. Soft and sharp coexist in a perfect harmony that makes our Emma a true joy.

To be fair, at least one of us was drunk.
Can I say, while this is supposed to be about selling books, and selling books would be very cool because it's difficult to pay rent with affection* I am getting all terribly excited about just meeting everybody. I am really looking forward to this.
*Difficult. Not impossible.
Ae. And the Epic Ale is damn tasty, ta.
Note to self:
You don't live in Wellington. You haven't lived in Wellington in nearly a decade. Stop getting all excited when you see that a cool event is happening in Wellington. You will only end up disappointed when reality hits.
My RSVPing is for Ak launch and Great Blend for 2. Not Welly
Can Dave and I RSVP here for Emma's Auckland launch, or are you planning to do something a little more formal closer to the event?
The backs of his ears were a very interesting shade of fuschia.
Emma - you may have been deceived by the conventional pronunciation on the spelling of fuchsia. This was a couple of days ago and I wouldn't normally bother, but I know you care about these things and have expressed some of your own pendantry on occasions. And Fuchsia flowers make such lovely pendants, or necklaces even.
Fuchsia the genus of plants was named after one Herr Dr. Prof. Fuchs. The name pops up again with the leader of the British expedition crossing Antarctica in 1957/58 who was a fine English gentleman splendidly named Sir Vivian Fuchs, aka Bunny Fuchs, pronounced Foooks instead of any more obvious German or Anglo-Saxon ways. I doubt that Sir Ed and the NZ crew supposedly helping them could keep a straight face when saying his name, in whatever form. And this probably gave them the idea of pissing him off by heading for the South Pole on their Fergie tractors and arriving there first.
Now, if my plan has worked, you should henceforth spell Fuchsia or fuchsia correctly every time, and maybe smile just a little as you do so.
There is the New Zealand fuchsia or Kotukutuku (f. excorticata) which is one of the very few deciduous native plants in New Zealand.
