Hi Tony, how's tricks? Cheers for the invite, really appreciated. I'm wondering about this Ken Bruen guy you mention ... is he Irish or something? And he writes books, you say? Gentle fairytales about the wee people, no doubt ... congrats on Paying For It, by the way ... if you want to drop over to Crime Always Pays and fill out a Q&A, I'd be delighted to plug it ... Cheers, Dec
I love the way you and Donna have written something good, and yet both deny responsibility! As for Mr Sheen and his polishing, was it Martin or Charlie? Name dropper! Thanks for the add, BTW, much appreciated. Looking forward to the book, too, congratulations on that. :o)
I remember the sh*t too...especially one high-profile English female journo who just went postal! You know the one, references to how cute you looked in your by-line shot...oh, how droll, such a wag! Great book though...kudos, kudos. Lost my copy in a move to and from Australia a couple years back...any left? Would love to do the math on the tennis players' pay section now!
So you found a bug in the system – that'll be setting alarm bells off – you can mail me at Pulp Pusher through the contacts page, I pick those up...now and again.
I tried to reply to your email about Not Guilty, but for some reason the system wouldn't deliver the message. So I'll just say here how totally thrilled I am to hear that you read and liked it. Thanks - I really appreciate that (because God knows I took enough sh*t at the time!)
You were serious..? :o ... I'm appalled. And jealous, cuz now you get to read all Bruen's incredible books for the first time...prepare to be blown away.
Don't take my word for it, here's how he's described over at ThugLit: ''Ken Bruen: Take one part Bukowski, one part Chandler, fill to the rim with Bushmills and shake. Then throw that mix into the face of the ugliest motherfu**er in the bar and bite his ear off. That's how Bruen writes.''
