Well, all the forum ladies who went to Harrogate this past summer were wearing very special t-shirts.  Each and every one of us is now a 'Billingham Babe x'.  Somewhere, Jayne may know where, are pictures from Harrogate showing our beauties in their shirts. 

Sadly I wasn't there, but RC was kind enough to send me my very own shirt.  So, um, RC's 'babes' have their very own 'babe' t-shirt!

To get back on the subject of titles, it's a funny old world. Currently, I'm mulling around ideas (got a great one for book three!), but its amazing how many I've thrown away because 'they are too close for comfort'.

You get the perfect twist of phrase or turn of words and then settle down for a soothing cup of tea, only to glance at the bookshelf and see the same bloody title staring at you. The amount of times that something has come close, or near, or rhymed!

So to suggest a new title for a book, try 'Available at Smiths'.

Then again, in my music days, I always wanted to do an album called 'Previously Untitled', and a second called 'Work In Progress'. Even that, though, is so bloody close to nicking the Pet Shop Boys idea of making people be nice when asking for an album "Can I have the Pet Shop Boys, Please.... please?"

It`s at times like this you have to go down the Russell Brand route. `My Booky Wook`.  Why not `My First Book About Bad Men`, `My Second Book Ab....` etc.
