Why is it Foyles wants to charge me to come into its store, if I am going to buy a book there to get it signed, why do they want to charge me a fiver for the privilege?
I am only bitter this month as I have a budget of �15 to live off, and I know when I am paid and rich again, they'll all be sold.
Bah to Foyles. I'm going to Into The Void instead.
I'm sure they'll have a lot of seats left, when you're flush. The only place the event has been mentioned so far is here and on Foyles site, for a November event. And they aren't charging you a fiver to come into the bookshop. Foyles is renting a 500 seat theatre and putting on a really solid event, if last year's is anything to go by, including an interview (and an interviewer), audience Q & A, a reading with slides, and the kind of signing you get when Dave McKean and I sign for all 500 people (which in this case, includes comfy seating until your row gets called, which is not to be underestimated).
I don't know if the fiver counts against the cost of the book -- most UK bookshops that charge for events will give you back the ticket price if you buy a book by the author from them.
I probably should have posted the rest..
