(For immediate release)
Robert Muchamore, the bestselling author of the CHERUB and Henderson Boys books, has been incapacited by agents hostile to CHERUB, and will - sadly - no longer be able to travel to Abingdon for the scheduled booksigning at 6pm on March 3rd.
This event has had to be POSTPONED.
It will be rearranged at a future date. More information will be released as Robert's condition becomes clearer. You can follow updates on Robert's Twitter feed.
The suspicion at the moment is a toxic substance, which has left Robert with severe flu-like symptoms - and no voice. How enemy agents managed to slip through Robert's rebust security systems is, at the present time, a mystery, but new wood flooring recently installed in the author's house is the current prime suspect.
More information as we get it. We have set up a special email address http://firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries about Robert's health, and any information you may have for this audacious attack.
