…when yeez are an Author, ‘being left on the shelf’ ain’t such a bad thing… #TBSU…



…an unexpected wee surprise appeared today on my Facebook wall… courtesy of great pal, Mac Paco, currently resident among the citizenry of the beautiful metropolis that is Barcelona… the picture above, for those of yeez of a more perceptive mind, shows dual-lingo titles on his bookshelf… the remarkable Author, Master Stephen Leather’s tomes grace pride of place in Spanish and English… my good mate, Author, Master Andrew Peters, also lives in the Espagnol sector of the Iberian Peninsula, and a trio of Andrew’s superb writings nudge neatly alongside those of Master Leather…and…and…and… oh, joy of joys!…two of my own wee babies, book-end one edge of the collection… there’s a certain buzz that only yeez Lads and Lassies of Blog Land will comprehend when yeez see yer WURK sitting in sumb’dy else’s library… it’s all very well driving sales graphs and Amazon Author’s Pages ad inforeverum through the eBook channels, but NUTHIN’s quite like seeing the physical article holding its own reserved literary parking slot… rubbing printed shoulders with two of my favourite quill-scrapers in Messrs Leather and Peters is extraordinary… growing up as a lad, the phrase, ‘being left on the shelf’ held all sorts of non-inclusion connotations… that p’raps stuff had kinda passed yeez by… well, if ‘being left on the shelf’ continues to see my masterpieces adorn the bookcases of the likes of Mac Paco, with his impeccable taste (as witness these fine scribblers up there too), then I’m happy to part of that… thanks, Mac… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!
