Reviewers say Jonathan Gibbs' Randall is "eerily believable", "disarmingly sympathetic", "more than mischief", "inventive" and "the sort of novel you pray for". Naturally, we agree. Find out why here

Francis gives us a speech

Francis Plug- How To Be a Public Author is launched! We had a great party at the magnificent Waterstones Piccadilly on Friday - but there was one notable absence. It turns out that Francis himself has been barred from the premises. It was left to his ameneuensis Paul Ewen to speak on his behalf. But fortunately, Francis did pass on a speech for him to read. I post it here for your pleasure and education. (Click on the speech to make it nice and big):

 

Launch day

Francis Plug is out in the world today and he feels so real that I keep wondering how he's doing. How's he going to react when he sees his book in bookshops? What's he going to say when he finds out we've been too scared to ask him to any of the launch parties? How's he going to feel when he knows that people actually love him and he isn't half so alone as he might feel? 

Oh Francis!

I just hope it goes well for you.
