My Lost Hour
I am in a rush becasue the Time Lords have stolen an hour from me. Is there someone I can complain to? John Major had the Cone Hotline, does Gordon have the Hour loss directive you can vent your spleen at?The good people of this sceptred isle have voted with their wallets and not bought Ms Myerson's exploitative book about her son. Even after the square miles of column inches from her meeja chums it has failed to hit the bestselling charts. My faith has been restored. Is this some kind of celebrity backlash? Probably not, but it just goes to show if you call yourself a fiction writer, do just that. Write fiction, don't drag your family into your stories and expose them for profit. After the cash cow that was Harry Potter, I think Bloomsbury may have a few returns to sign for. Off to try and reclaim my lost hour. How long will the queue be?
