My dear friends,

A little while ago, I kind of promised to Clare that I would write a book about her 'Office Witch'. I said that I would do that if my other one, on which I'm working now, is finished. So, it's almost finished.
I already post this message to ask who wants to be part of this book.
What is my intention?

The title will be of course 'The Office Witch'
We all work in the same company and our boss is really a b**ch.
One day, we find out that Simon is coming to our town and wants to meet all his fans.
For sure, we all want to go. Unfortunately, that is not how the witch sees it.
She grants no one of us the day off when he comes.
So we decide to put down work and have a strike.
As a punishment, she kidnaps Simon. We have to find him and release him from that evil woman before the filming of the new Casualty episodes get started in three days time.
The rest of the Casualty crew may not know that he is kidnapped and so we wind up in silly situations.

So that is what I had in mind. To realize that I need your help. If you want to come in the book, tell me something about you. You can do that by replying on this topic or send me an email. Also let me know if I may use your real name or your User name from here.
What I also want to ask you is to post over here your favorite picture of Simon. If I have them all I will give them a number, write the same numbers on a small paper and draw the winning photo that will appear on the cover of the book. At least if Shelli agrees with that. After all it are her pictures.
When the book is done, I will send a copy to Simon. I hope he will like it.
Clare, a request to you: send me as much information you can about your Office Witch.
Other members: any suggestions are welcome.

I also need a volunteer who now and then wants to read what I already have written. You see, I have to write this book in English. I know my English is not too bad, but still it is best that someone read and correct the errors.
It does not always have to be the same person.

I hope you all like this idea and that I may count on your cooperation and help.

Thank you and bye-bye for now.

Thank you very much for volunteering. I'll let you know when I've written the first pages.
I'm actually thrilled about this book. :D

I always knew a book could be written about 'the office witch' although I thought that was just a saying I had but here it is going to be coming to fruition. My work used to have double the trouble when her mother was there before she retired but daughter is much more vindictive that her mum could ever have been. You wouldn't believe that her dad and brother were such nice people.

You say 'were'. Does that mean that they are not alive anymore? Is it possible that they got killed by the evil witch? Think hard about this one before you answer.

Her dad died last month of leukemia and her brother no longer works with us but I'm expecting that he's still a reasonable guy.

No, it is not too late. I haven't started yet. I think I will start about at the end of this week.
My other book is nearly finished. After I have reread the bloody thing, I forward it to the publisher. I am going to try a new publisher for that book. If he is good, I'll use him for 'The Office Witch' as well.

Friends, I'm still waiting for those pictures of Simon.

*** Help requested ***

Friends,

Up to now, Clare and Kerri have been reading and correcting my book. Chapter 3 is almost finished and I would like to ask you if somebody else also wants to volunteer to correct it.
I can't always ask those two to do all the work. I hope that someone is kind enough to help me through this.
