Return of the Syrup (part two)

Syrup Syrup is back in Australia and New Zealand! Apparently the publisher was checking down the back of a couch for a TV remote and instead found 2,000 copies. Or maybe it was a warehouse, not a couch. Whatever. This means that like in the US and Canada, while most bookstores won’t have Syrup on the shelves, they can now easily order it in for you.

Because there’s limited stock, if you’re keen to get your mitts on a copy in Australia or New Zealand, now’s the time to act. (By going to a bookstore and ordering a book. Was that clear already? Okay.)

About a year ago I was working in a bookstore in Auckland and I was pushing Jennifer Government.

If I was still working there I'd be insisting that both books were on the shelf rather than just ordering it if the customer wanted.

We knew our stuff in that bookstore too, Dan Brown was one of our bestsellers before the Da Vinci code was released.
