My local free paper (the Metro) had a letter in it yesterday from someone who is unhappy with their life and says that being taxed on all the money they earn is unfair, given how utterly miserable their lifestyle is making them. It seemed a really sad story, but (being desperate to publicise Cawnpore) I decided to tell them how happy I am being an impoverished author. And Metro published my letter!!!
OK, the meanies spoiled the effect by taking out the name of the book, but surely thousands of people will now Google my name and buy it. Won't they?
