Thread Name: BS: The Gnome has been published!
Subject: RE: BS: The Gnome has been published!
I once had to proofread a book by someone who had persuaded a publisher to publish his life story. They had agreed on condition he paid for the production himself.
As I read it I realised that he must have bored everyone at his local pub with his anecdotes, and they had humoured him by saying "You should write a book, you know", just to shut him up.
