emails from Jasper

Ah June, you are very kind to me. If you can learn about the ways of word writings from me then that is very good. Perhaps one day you will write a book and there will be other Junes to make it into many copies. I am quite excited about having a book published but it has happened to me before, hasn’t it, so I am not as excited as I was then. The book is coming along very well. I have written many much more pages.

Thank you for the date I know it now.
I am learning fast. I went to the seaside today and was nearly sick due to the salty water. Watch out for this. It’s salty! You can write this down if you want to, because I am a writer, the much more words of mine that are written down the better . As long as they have my name on them!

Yours goodbye

Jasper.

Hello Jasper,

I like what you said about a writer and a publisher being like a book’s pages and a book’s cover. It made me think of books, and I like books. It is very clever the way you wrote about one thing as if it were another thing, that must be why you are such a good writer.
In answer to your question, the book signing (launch?) date in Swindon is 7th July 2007.
Are you excited that your book manuscript is going to be made into lots and lots of books and put in shops?

I am glad you are not cold.

p.s. I am writing a blog at the moment, can I write in it that what you have said?

Oh June! That isn’t right: I think you are important. I am just the writer, but you help people to see the books. Without you it would be just me and a book with lots of pages. Which would be fine, but not the same. You are organised. You make things happen, I might write the pages (many of them) but in a sort of way you are the glue and the spine which holds them together.

Of course! The coat! you see how important you are – without you I would be cold.

The first date I would like you to confirm, if you have time in your busy day, is the date of the launch of my book in Swindon! I know, I should this know!

Yours goodbye

Jasper

Hello Jasper,
I don’t think we have spoken before, unless you mean by writing emails to each other, then we have. I emailed you after the time you visited here and left your coat.
I am busy, but I think you are important and I am not! Which dates did you wish to have confirmed?

Thank you June.

You are very kind. Have we spoken before? I speak to so many people, I sometimes forget.

I have also lost my diary which is a foolish thing of me to be doing, would it be bad if I wrote to you asking to confirm some dates? I know that you are very important and busy, so please don’t worry if that is a problem. I don’t want to take away you from this important book business.

yours goodbye

Jasper

Hello there Hodder friends.

I hope you absolutely all are well.

I’m writing to you because I have done a thing and made all my email addresses get deleted when I dropped my computer on a wall.

So I am writing here today to ask you if

Could you send me back.the important addresses and also any information you have sent in the last few days as I have lost that as well.

The book is going to be excellent and I have written many pages.

Yours goodbye,

Jasper

  1. This is all starting to make my head hurt. Metafiction I can handle, but this is starting to get weird. I just hope it all makes sense in the end, or my brain is going to melt and, well, sort of dribble out of my nose and ears.
