For the British Persons Here. ;-) by tucsonmike on 1 January 2008 11:28pm
 
Happy New Year Folks. Since John Cleese referred to American Person, I thought that salutation would work.;-)

I have finished the rough draft of my futuristic novel and need someone to read it over, especially for accuracy of things British.

My publisher has it, but told her I have to fill in stuff and have a long way to go.
Thanx in advance.

Congratulations, Mike! Best of luck finding a British expert to review your book. Shouldn't be too hard.

Thanks Judy.

I have duel citizenship, does that count?

Yes, Karen dear, that works LOL! I would be honored to have you read it.

"Duel citizenship." I *like* that idea! Instead of having people learn a new language, take a test, and recite a pledge, just have them fight to the death for it. Very Pythonesque! LOL ;-)

Yes, Karen has dueling halves. The British half tried to suppress the Australian half, the Australian half tried to drag the British half around.

I might be able to arrange a reading for you Ginny. Still waiting to hear from my publisher what SHE thinks about it.

Karen is lucky because she gets to be an Australian person, a Scottish person, and an English person! (I meant to say British person) Is there much of a difference nowadays?

Which explains Karen's sanity. Her body is divided into thirds (or ridings) and fighting with each other.
The English part invades the Scots part which retaliates. The Aussie part sees both as Pommies and calls it a day.
