Calamity



Days to Launch: 4


What is happening to my life? Where is Carlos? Where is Sherlock?


Someone has broken into my house. My desk has been ransacked. My darling baby Sherlock is gone.


What is happening?


I found this tucked into the wine cooler.The villians must have known it was the first place I'd go to on returning home.


I smell a rat. I have been betrayed.
I don't want to say too much because I'm still gathering my thoughts, but rest assured, I will have Sherlock returned to me safely and I WILL LAUNCH MY BOOK ON THE 27th.
This is the man responsible. Friends and supporters, visit him with your ire. What kind of man harms an innocent puppy? Ask yourself. What kind of man?

This is what you get when you play with fire, lady.

I've no sympathy. None whatsoever.

You know you could end all this quite quickly by publicly admitting that you stole his novel, returning the manuscript to him, and making an apology, online or in person?

Publicity stunt? Is the Case Book of Desiderous blog a bit of the viral marketing?

If so, very clever.

Kaye said...

I reckon the writer behind Desiderus' blog is writing this one too - some sort of promo thing for a book that doesn't exist.

Good stuff though.

I wish I could feel something for you...even if its pity...

Friends,

This is no publicity stunt. Adorna is a unique individual. When pricked, I bleed. And my heart is bleeding today.

I am shortly going to decamp to a secret location in a part of the city far from where I am now. Taking only the essentials, I'll hole myself up there and try to get my hair into some kind of order.

Please be my ears and eyes until then, and look for Sherlock. Her favourite food resembles Desiderus' theorems: TRIPE!

You what to know where your dog is?

Come clean then!

You've been warned.


One of these days you're going to wake up with a dog's head in your bed.

Beware men in fine suits!

Anonymous, your opinions are as flimsy as your grasp of the English language. Please consult Strunk and White before you post here again. I fear you wish your opining to cause me some fright, but your words serve only to amuse.


The more I think about this matter, (and I shouldn't be thinking, I should be packing...) The more I realise there's something odd about this.


If Carlos (where are you?) Had done his job correctly, Desiderus would have been in no fit state to scale the guttering and effect ingress to my apartment, whence to my study, and onto Sherlock's Wendy House. He must have had help.

But who?

have you seen the INCRIMINATING letter he's put up on his blog? What have you to say? Please say something... I so desperately want to believe you're just being unfairly vilified. Waiting...

PS. Best wishes for the launch. I'm in Reykjavik at the moment (that's the capital of the country that used to be known as Iceland until the Russians bought it for a symbolic 1 Euro), hope to be back in time for the launch.

Good to see you've started allowing anonymous comments. Now you're ready to be believed and defended as you deserve to be...

I think it's a cheek he gets to post about being in fear of his safety when you're the one who has to go into hiding.

You have my support. His so called 'evidence' is clearly a concoction - he thinks he's living in a crime novel.

Good luck for the launch. I know you'll look fabulous.

Good Luck Adorna. Your real friends have witnessed your development as a writer and a woman and they won't dessert you now. The launch is going to be fantastic. I know you;ll miss having Carlos on the door like at the old days of Bunny Heaven, but there are loads of hot guys willing to do that job - give me a ring and I will rustle some up if you need me to.

What's Viral Marketing? It doesn't sound nice, whatever it is.


I promote myself and my work the old fashioned way - lipstick, straightening irons and fabulous heels. Anyone who says anything different is a liar.


Hope to see you all at the launch. I'm broken, but I'm undefeated - I will be there and so will Pink as Perfume.
