Robert Galbraith – First Pictures ;-)

The author and close friend Bob Galbraith after the publisher’s party

Oooh – I’ve been listening to posh BBC radio over breakfast. The main subject has been that wizard of an author Robert Galbraith. This red headed porridge gobbler has fooled the world for the last sixteen years or so by masquerading as a female novelist using the pseudonym JK Rowling. Those of us industry insiders who know Robert (or Bobby to his mates) Galbraith personally are not surprised. I’ll never forget his appearance in drag at the Random Penguin Christmas party two years ago. It was only the haggis fragments in his stubble that gave him away. Bob Galbraith – I salute you. You never fooled me of course, but it was great while it lasted. Who knows what other secrets lie undiscovered in the mysterious hyper- murk of the super-scribes? 


And NOW……The prize winners in my ‘Love In A Hopeless Place’ launch competition. All winners were selected by Rafflecopter. In addition all winners will receive a Kindle copy of the soon-to-be launched ‘Love In A Hopeless Place Collection’ featuring all five stories.

Linn Halton wins a large tattoo.
Petra Rovere wins a Seahorse Club pin.
Carol Wyer wins a pack of Pleasuremax ribbed condoms
Nicky Wells wins a glitterball key ring
Barbara Brannon White wins a copy of Love In A Hopeless

Place (Now upgraded to the whole collection!).


Regulars on here may recall that all of these items feature in the story. If any TV producer out there wants an idea for a  celebrity vehicle show how about this? You get a couple of famous scribblers such as Robert (Bobby) Galbraith and Emma Calin. You give them each a team of coked-up celebs and a bag of props. They write a story based on them which is then performed by celebrity chefs. You could call it “Ready Steady Book”. Wow – I’m gonna be rich.

And finally, my latest book, a ‘boxed set’ of five novelettes and short stories: 
 “Love In A Hopeless Place Collection” 
launches on Thursday 18th July. 
I’m gonna be on all kinds of blogs blowing my own trumpet trombone…




17th July Anneli Purchase
20th July Sheryl Browne
21st July Nicky Wells
23rd July Miriam Wakerly
26th July Patricia Sands

  1. You are too kind Bert – thanks for your support I really appreciate it. PS one of the prizes has been declined – can you guess which? I was asked to donate it to another participant…… but perhaps I should ask Christina first? Emma x
