It's your time You're Wasting

As you can see, we've employed a team of expensive design consultants to do the front cover. (Supervised by my eight year old nephew)

Publication date is September 4th, the editor assures me. We should get the hard copies by the end of June so that we can arrange a few reviews.

Looking forward to it. I loved your old blog on Livejournal. Is the book along similar lines?

I still have a copy of 'Top Set, Bottom Set' from your Blog. If the rest of the book is half as funny, I'll buy a copy!

We used to have a copy of 'Mr. Chalk's Rules of Supply Teaching' on our Staffroom wall until someone from SMT took it down!

All the best

Like the cover! Are you hoping to keep your identity secret or are you 'coming out'?

Are you still a teacher? You could get into a lot of trouble if you are.

Hope it's better than I'm a teacher get me out of here_ that made me cringe.

Best of luck with the book. If it's anything like your blog was, then put me down for a copy. (You'll need the cash for when your Head sacks you!)

Aren't you going to be found out once this book comes out? (Assuming your name isn't really Mr. Chalk)

I'm another fan of your old blog. Hope the book is successful and you don't get caught!

'I could write a book about what goes on here etc...'

but none ever have. Good on you.

Wow, this book looks really interesting.
I've always wanted to get a point of view from an actual teacher.
Working with bridging loans all the time never lets me look at this.
