You know how it is.
You go to an ice-cream shop and buy a rum and raisin. And you feel strangely dissatisfied. And then you say to yourself:
‘You know what would make this a complete and fully satisfactory retail experience?’
‘What?’ you say.
‘If I could buy a book alongside my ice-cream.’
‘Exactly!’ you say.
Well now you can. Because Mr B’s Ice Cream Parlour in Hayle have bowed to heavy authorial pressure (nagging) and decided to mix retail genres by selling One Big Echo of a Much Nicer Place alongside its glorious ice-cream.
Early trials revealed much confusion, with punters licking books and reading ice-cream, but they soon got the hang of it.
I’ve got ice cream in my book
Interestingly, One Big Echo features a story called Love and Ice Cream, about a man who falls in love with a fellow ice-cream seller. (Well, I thought it was interesting.)
