Kate, don't worry, you're not in the video. Did anyone identity-known ask any of the questions?

The Chortle review is quite balance, I think. Some of my own concerns about the book are echoed there.

Has anyone elsse read it yet?

Sounds like those of you who went had a good time, and thank you so much to whoever filmed the Q&A! It is very much appreciated! :D

I quickly browsed through the book today, and some of the excerpts I came across looked interesting, but I haven't bought it yet incase there will be another signing in the near future...

'Bizarre' magazine review

Postby Geoff Tipps' Joke Writer » Mon Sep 17, 2007 4:33 pm

There is a very small review of 'Book of Precious Things' in this month's 'Bizarre' magazine...sorry no scanner as otherwise I'd scan it in & post it up, but its so small not sure if it would be worth it anyway.

ICIC asked what inspired the change in plot format for series 3, but apart from her I don't think so. I'm crap and can never think of anything to ask. :roll:

I did try to think of a question, but with Teh Shearsmitttts sat right there my brain went on holiday.
I didn't think a grin, then falling forward out of my chair face down into his groin would have been appreciated.
Even if it was probably expected

It might not be a question in the traditional sense but he'd be left in no doubt as to your intent. :lol: :lol:

I honestly never can think of anything. Then invariably forty really good questions occur to me as soon as I get home. :roll:
