The Book Signing

by Bryan Thomas
Originally published by on 28/04/2013

"I like a man who knows how to handle an exclamation mark," she purred, running a blood red fingernail over the cover of my book.

Her T-shirt bore the warning: DANGER - CONTENTS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE.

I reached across the table and slid my cigarette lighter closer to me - just to be on the safe side.

I opened a copy of my latest novel.

"To Aphrodesia," she purred.

"Anything else?" I said.

"Love, David," she said.

"David? I'm Bryan Thomas."

"You're not David Wailing?"

"No. He's at Waterstones on the High Street today."

And she was gone.

Without my novel.
