UK Book Shops Need Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

If you don't know I'm a fan of Jamie Ford and his book, you haven't been reading my blog much. Unfortunately, our friends across the pond do not have direct access to this wonderful tome. Fear not Jamie, help is on the way. My bud Rebecca has a great idea, which you can read about here. Rebecca has some great ideas for using Twitter:

Help through Twitter by doing the following:

1. #followfriday Jamie (@JamieActual)
2. #fridayreads Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.
3. Link to this post mentioning Jamie or Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
4. Help to make #jamiefordinUK a trending topic

I've copied from her blog, so I hope she won't mind. Run your own blog post (with the exact same title as mine here) and let's get the word out. If you haven't read this book, go get it right now. To quote a great 80's movie line, "It's a moral imperative!" Bonus points for those who know what movie that quote is from. C'mon blog-o-sphere. It's a damn shame the UK doesn't have access to this book, so help us do what we can to get it there.

You may now return to your regularly scheduled broadcast.

That's using the old noodle!

Darn. Wish I had known the source of the quote.

Popping over from my blog after your comment this morning. And always glad to hear from a reader and especially a writer/reader. Good for you for helping a friend. It's a tough game out there -- we need all the help we can get!
