We got sent an article written by Andy that appeared in one of the papers a little while ago, thanks! I’m splitting it up in parts Рsince I have to re-type it here.

I‚Äôve just had one of those ‚Äėweird coincidence‚Äô moments.

I was at a friend’s party and got introduced to Alastair Campbell. I had literally just come from a film production meeting where I had been talking about him. I must have conjured him up.

I am planning to co-produce a film in which a government PR figure lead his prime minister down a particular path with devastating results. There is no resemblance to anyone living, of course, and I tried to tell him this, but I think he was too excited by the train journey he had just had. He had just returned from a day trip to Paris on Eurostar, and couldn’t stop singing the praises of its new terminal at St Pancras.

He also told me someone had just bid 50,000 GBP to charity to have their name appear in his next book.

I stupidly mentioned that I got 100,000 GBP to have someone’s name appear in one of my thrillers.

Judging by the look in his eye, I thought I might soon be needing the services of the charity my 100K went to ‚Äď the Red Cross.

Love it. Andy is doing well selling characters in his book. The 100k was spent by Basma to appear in Crossfire. Great character to be, think she got her moneys worth and made the Red Cross happy at the same time. I also¬†learned that the¬†writer Hari Kunzru¬†(The Impressionist, Transmission and My Revolutions) donated to a good cause to have his name split up in the characters Hari and Kunzru in Aggressor, who were described as ‘fucks who can’t even tie their own shoe laces’. I hope he was happy too.¬†Of course I’m not complaining with ‘my’¬†name for free in¬†Remote Control and also got in¬†The Grey Man – allthough the first was a male character and the latter pure coincidence. Ah well.. that’s minor details, at least in my imagination. Who will be in Brute Force is still a surprise, we’ll see about that in¬†a few months. With over 40% of female writers and given Nick Stone’s popularity with them I think some cause could very well auction Nicks new lover – there may be some girls who are prepared to digg into their savings accounts to have their name honoured that way. ūüėČ

Greymansland was informed (bows gracefully to the source)¬†that the title of the¬†new Nick Stone novel, coming up this November, has been altered into “Brute Force”.¬†The synopsis still stands.

Perhaps that is the reason why the cover is still not published?

We also learned that there has been made a slight alteration to the¬†Seven Troop cover: Andy’s decorations DCM and MM have been added.

Last – but definitely not least: all fans start saving up their money, Andy has been spending 4 days in the studio to narrate the audio version of Seven Troop! So apart from the printed version, us die hard fans will have to get hold of that one too!!
