You really are a proper gentleman, JJ Palooka, thank you. x

Dear Mr Palooka,

It is with regret that as you have now been shirking and awol for an appallingly shameful 132 days, I am going to pledge my allegiance elsewhere. However, when you return, and want to play some games or monkey around downtown in the forum, you know where I am;-)

Keep an eye out for orange trees and hairy knees.
Forgiveness is for the birds. x x

My name is Peter Reich, special investigator to the Pope and former captain of the Swiss Guard.

I need your help.

A few months ago, I was approached by a young Spanish woman who claimed to have evidence of a U.S.-led plot to assassinate the Pope and take control of the Vatican.

My son is dead. My wife is missing. And my only friend has turned against me.

I am alone and in hiding.

I do not trust anyone, perhaps I can trust you.

This is my story.

Hi, I'm Susan writer of A.O.V. Angel of Vengeance a supernatural religious thriller but probably nothing like you would expect. I have High hopes for A.O.V. just like the ant who moved that rubber tree plant I plan to try and move it to the editors desk then the publishers then the films. It is a story the world hungers for and based on some facts. It really is a good read I was hoping you might check it out and offer up some feedback. I am currently submitting to agents and trying to get as many people to read it as possible. Its controversial contents will bring to mind the possibility of a worldwide hoax and we have been nothing but the pawns to the very ones trying to pull it off. Hope to hear from you Susan. A.O.V.

Hi JJ,

Thanks for backing Roundhead, much appreciated.

Hi JJ,

I am very grateful to you for the backing...out of the blue too. I have just read the first chapter of 'Son of Man.' Very powerfully written and evocative.

Cheers for now, Sam

Oh,JJPalooka, **sighs**

Where art thou?

My life is empty without you...

And nobody was very interested in our scintillating forum thread, as it turns out. Don't take this the wrong way or anything, but - Eek! - our subject matter might have been simply irrelevant. Or maybe we just didn't write BUMP enough times:-/ x

I am unbacking then rebacking, to test out a theory. x

Please excuse the uninvited message – especially if I've mailed you before. I'm not here to plug my book, but rather a writing group for comedy authors called CLOG as we need some new members. The main aims of the group are to collect a current list of comedy books in one place and then to pick one to review collectively within a set period. It's good for the author, they get some concentrated feedback, and it's good for us as we can compare opinions and all gain a better understanding of what does and doesn't work

In addition to this, we talk comedy on occasion and we're all quite friendly (honest).

If you're interested, please take a look at:


for further details.

Thanks for your time.

Regards, Alastair

I think that's a good idea reloading so that Taggers is more noticeable. When I first joined authonomy I didn't know that if you scrolled down a page, there might be more. But then I'm just a spud. x

Hello Brandt,

Hope you are well. Maybe you would like to try out Doghouse Blues. Currently at 2. Happy to reciprocate with a swap read.

Looking forward to reading your comments on the Doghouse Blues webpage.

All the best,

Brandt, thank you so much for shelving the Popish Plot. I see Taggers is available to purchase. That is a must buy for me.
Congratulations on so many publications.

Eliza Moon wrote 223 days ago   

I really appreciate your rebacking of The Weeds Explained Brandt. And thank you so much for replacing your comment, it means a lot to me:-) x

No e-reader. What if I sent you my email?
