Bangkok Book Signing On 07/08/2010

Thursday, August 5th, 2010


If you ever wanted to meet a Bangkok based acclaimed author, then you are in luck.  If you want to buy a novel and have it signed by an acclaimed author, then you will be double lucky.  If you would like a FREE lunch and discount on the book, then you are triple lucky.  My good friend Dean Barrett has published his latest novel and is hosting a book signing.  ‘Permanent Damage’ the sequel to Skytrain to Murder, is on sale in Thailand’s book stores now.  The book signing will be, as always, at the Texas Lone Star Saloon, Washington Square (Sukhumvit Soi 22, Bangkok).  As usual, it will be from 14:30 to 16:30 hours this Saturday afternoon.  And, of course, the lovely ladies of the Lone Star Saloon will be there to fulfill your every desire and cater to your every need.  Dean commented, ‘Ladies drinks are cheap, so please buy them one, or three with your free meal’.  Furthermore, in book stores Permanent Damage will cost you 450 baht.  At the signing it will ONLY cost you 300 baht.  Despite the fact that Dean is a talented writer, he really is a smashing guy and well worth meeting.  I will be there, so I hope to see you then.  Cheers! 

Saturday, August 7th, FREE lunch at 15:00 hours sharp!

The initial announcement regarding the 3-day closure of entertainment venues last weekend caused confusion. In Pattaya, a last minute decision stated that go-go bars and other entertainment establishments only had to close on the Saturday. A Pattaya bar owner told me that some go-go bars were open on Friday and Sunday, but others were not. It must have been a last minute scramble to round up enough bar girls for last Friday night. Fortunately, the beer bars and go-go bars in Pattaya were given a reprieve. This was not the case in Bangkok. Most of the beer bars, go-go bars and other entertainment venues in Bangkok, were closed last Friday and Saturday. But, we expected that to be the case. (more…)
