    @Egg Why is my face on your comment?

    God, You’d have to pay me to go see this clown. I bought ‘A Million little pieces’ after all the Oprah controversy for a look and couldn’t even finish it. Note to reformed addicts, just cause you stopped boozing/drugging doesn’t mean you can write.

  5. Egg says:

    @Darren – Its all part of my cunning identity-theft plan 😉

    @ I think it is part of the recovery process. Stop the boozing. Stop the drugging. Stop the stealing. Stop lying. Write fiction. Con publishers. Take their money and run to Ireland.

    It’s a good plan.
