A verrrrry long shot

Postby simonedi » Sun Jun 20, 2010 11:58 pm

Recently i was lucky enough to come across an uncorrected proof of jingo that was on the verge of being binned!!!
Having read it i feel it sheds a whole new light on terrys writing as you can see the moments of excitement where punctuation and so on are momenteraly forgotten and pauses where the correct words were not close to hand.
anyway... I was wondering if there was a way of getting it signed? I live in scotland and work full time so am unable to get to any signings or appearences which unfortunately are becoming fewer..
Is there anyone out there who knows a way i could hopefully get this gem signed by the great man himself?
thanks in advance

Hi Simon! :D

What a great find. You might try contacting Terry's Agent, Colin Smythe for advice.

Good luck! :D
