Book signing, beer buying...it's a date...

Avid readers of the comments here at The World's Leading... (and let's face it, who isn't? That's where the action happens...) will know that following our recent plug of senior PR man and published novelist Matthew Ravden's book, BlokeMiles, he said this:

"Aw, TWL what can I say? I will do a book signing in a pub of your choice...and buy the first pint for all."

Well, we've taken him up on his kind offer. On the evening of July 26th from about 7.00pm, you'll find Matthew upstairs in The Crown and Two Chairman, 31 Dean Street, Soho, pen in one hand, wallet in the other. We'll be there too.

Obviously, if you want a book signing you'll have to buy one and Matthew has asked us (virtually begged, to be honest) to say that if you do, could you please buy it in a proper bookshop rather than one of those new-fangled online ones?

If you don't want a book signing then that's OK...we'll be in a pub! You can just come along for a beer, and we can all have a good old gossip.

Mr Ravden is that rare breed of author who seems to have written a book under his real name (assuming of course, that is his real name).

Personally, I'd have gone for a pseudonym, like Matthew McNabb, or P.D. Ravden, or something.

I also write erotica under the pseudonym Rufus McNipple.

TWL, are you hoping that you will be an anonymous face lost in the thronging crowd around the scribe? Or engaging plausible deniability, "What me? The infamous TWL? You flatter me too much." Or will you be attending in disguise? Like that nice bloke V? Or maybe Bertie Bassett? Yes, that's the one.
