Em’s spin-off Memo has been running in Mslexia magazine since 2008. It follows its hapless heroine’s struggle to become a published author. Like with Em, it’s based on real life events, depicting scenes both from my own and from friends’(you know who you are) quests for a book-deal. This is the first strip, which featured in issue 39 in 08. The corner shop in question is in Balham, a number of magazines were (finally) purchased and decorated the bathroom floor of our shared house for some months whilst research took place. No short story was ever successfully accepted.
