Saturday 08/01/11

So, someone left a comment on the last post saying:

"I'm not sure I can wait till September [for the book]. Can we have some teasers please?"

Well I'm not sure if they were serious or taking the piss, but I'm going to employ my delusion (why not? it's taken me thus far) and assume they were serious and say that yes, there will be teasers and there will be information and outlines and excerpts, etc on here before the book comes out.

And when the cover is decided (which will be within the next few weeks) I'll post it on here and generally I'll try to keep anyone who's interested up to date.

Oh also, sometimes as I'm writing I need a name for a character and because I completely lack imagination and can't think of any, I ask people to tweet me their names (if they want to be written in) and I use those. So keep an eye on that if you want to play along: London Preppy Twitter

Happy 2011. If that's the type of emotion you go for. I'm not here to judge.

Hi LP,
That was me and yes, I did mean it. Well, I won't die or anything if I don't get it but I would very much like some material sooner.

p.s. could you use my nickname, (Bergy) or maybe just Berg, in your book?

oh, and just thought: you posted a pic of 'love' on your neck a while ago, was that a transfer or a real tattoo?

London Preppy said...

berale: Next time I'm looking for something that "Berg" fits, I'll use it, no worries.

No, that was a transfer

berale23 said...

Thanks girlfriend. I can imagine there being a 'Berg' in Less than Zero, especially what with the Jewish characters, so thought it might fit the style of your new book.

Sorry about the douchey question about your tattoo; not cool of me.

Anyhoo,
Laters.
xoxo

I expect to make a cameo

I'd certainly enjoy something G-related, seems a vague enough "name" to slot in (coke dealer? art-world enfant terrible? anonymous blog-creeper?)

Is this a ploy to get more followers? Did the publishing company suggest the challenge. The more social network follows, the more $$$! Money for thought.

London Preppy said...

anon: Well, my publisher was holding a gun to my head as I was typing this post, but I still think of myself as a free spirit, etc

I seem to recall that your birthday is early in Jan. They seem to come by faster once you hit your 30's, don't they? So, happy birthday, if that's the type of emotion you go for.

Can't wait for Coachella! Sadly, The line up doesnt include the Vampire Weekend..sigh. I was hoping they will be there.

LP, Since you are going to Coachella, will be you be stopping by WPPS Events the week after? It's very close from indo to Palm Springs?

London Preppy said...

kim: You knows me better than that

anon: Aw, Vampire Weekend would have been amazing. Nevermind.

Sorry for being thick, but what does WPPS stand for? I'll guess White Party Palm Springs? Is that not the weekend before Coachella?

kim said...

sorry. got a bit carried away.

Hey LP, WPPS = White Party Palm Springs. Actually you are right, it is the weekend before Coachella April 7 - April 11. It's going to be a fun month. Are you going to WWPS? you should...

London Preppy said...

kim: That's OK. It happens to the best of us

anon: I don't know actually. Are you?

LP,

Yeah i am going. Last year WPPS was amazing with Freemason and etc, better than the previous year. If you are going, skip the main event but attend the pool parties, t-dance w/fireworks and closing event perhaps. You will have an amazing time. Roughly 20,000 will be there - the biggest circuit event in US.
