My first book ‘Dimly Lit Meals for One: Heartbreaking Tales of Sad Food and Even Sadder Lives’ was published on October 1 2015.
It took many months of soul stirring, emotionally and physically intense labour, surreptitiously typing away at my work desk trying to find something vaguely funny to write about poorly photographed plates of food.
Was it a success?
I’ll let the outstanding reviews left on be the judge of that.
As of January 2016 it has a flawless 5 out of 5 rating as determined by customers of Amazon who are also my blood kin or schoolmates I’m still reasonably close with.
Yes, members of my (immediate) family and at least one person I had GCSE English with have rated ‘Dimly Lit Meals for One: Heartbreaking Tales of Sad Food and Even Sadder Lives’ a better, more important, book than both The King James Bible and a little book called ‘War and Peace’.
Pretty good yeah?
That’s what happens when Stephen Fry tweets about a hot new tumblr he’s spent the day in his Georgian mansion ROFLing over on his million pound state of the art smartphone.
Does it matter that he did that over two years ago and the world has now moved on?
Nope, not if you’re me!
