My Irvine Welsh autog'd novel contest.

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I had the chance to attend a meet and greet with Scottish icon/author Irvine Welsh this afternoon. Great guy, very cool, such a pleasure to meet a real hero of mine.

I have 2 copies of his latest novel, "Skagboys", autographed, for those here who might be interested. It is a prequel to "Trainspotting", and it's brilliant. I loved it, and would love to share.

Post your name in thread below, I shall draw 2 names at random before whichever teams play Euro Football on Saturday at noon.

Therefore, draw is this Saturday at noon.

Anyone care? Let's find out.

:chug:

What did you talk about?

I think I read about this Skagboys, that before he wrote Trainspotting he decided to write out 100 000 words (having never written a novel) and then went on to write Trainspotting and that Skagboys was adapted from those 100 000 words. Is that more or less true?

Hooray!!! Thank you Mr. Slippery! Yesterday I won a pass to the Ottawa Chamberfest and today a book. Next win, a million bucks perhaps?

There was a dead rabbit in my driveway today that we had to bury in the backyard...aren't rabbits lucky?

PM sent!
