Right I have managed to get hold of two extra copies of the sampler and I will be giving them away via my site: http://bricksandbooks.co.uk/2011/snuff-sampler-comp/

Also Waterstone's are doing and Exclusive Gold Edition of the novel, with an exclusive story via their stores, more on that plus a little review of the sampler can be found here: http://bricksandbooks.co.uk/2011/review-snuff-sampler/

Just read it! :D

Even though it's only 17 pages, it has two wonderful lines, one is my new sig, the other is very appropriate for the justice dished out to the rioters/MPs fiddling expenses. :D

I was trying not to, but I couldn't help it!
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

The sampler is very good. Now should I change my sig to have another Snuff quote? :twisted:

Let me know if you do so I can ignore your signature. :P
