Interview with Elrood the Elf.....

Eddie is so excited about this one. Elrood, his famous Elf  , normally works on the toy production line at the North Pole, but has now been given a huge promotion. He's been sent to Antarctica where the Universal Merit program has
 been outsourced . Elrood visited us last week in
 preparation for book launch on the
 1st of October 2012.

Eddie: Welcome, Elrood. Is this your first time in Scotland?
Elrood: You know very well it's not. I visited when the first volume of my memoirs was released.

Eddie: Ah, yes, Elrood the Elf. How is the book doing? As your biographer-
Elrood: [interrupting] - as my typist..

Eddie:[pausing] ... as your biographer, I wondered how well received it has been.
Elrood: Very well received thank you. All 5* reviews on Amazon. Loads of followers on Twitter, people like the Facebook page, and I try and keep the fans happy

Eddie: And what are fans of Elrood like?
Elrood: Crazy!, don't print that.

Eddie: Moving on, what is your next book about?
Elrood: It's about me and my amazing promotion to head up the Universal Merit programme in the South Pole

Eddie: Why there?
Elrood: Well, it's one of the Polarzone economies, isn't it? They are basically going through some austerity measures so we decided to outsource the work there.

Eddie: And why were you chosen to head up this important project?
Elrood: I have a Production Excellence Award

Eddie: ...and...?
Elrood: I refer you to my earlier answer.

Eddie: [shuffling papers] Er, another question. This time from Hendogal, "Is Astrid in this one?"
Elrood: [long pause]: No comment

Eddie: ...okay. This one in from chickenlicken (where do they get these names): Any funny things happen in this new story?
Elrood: No, it's all completely serious. My life story is not for other people's amusement.

Eddie: A question from Broon: What is Universal Merit?
Elrood: It's a way of helping us decide what you get as a gift under the tree from the guy in the big red suit. It's not enough to know if someone is naughty or nice. You might be nice enough for a soft toy or nice enough for a new bike. It's a sliding scale. Think about it.

Eddie: When is the book out?
Elrood: Monday the 1st of October

Eddie: Where can we buy a copy?
Elrood: [sigh] Just put the links in, will you Eddie? You're the typist.

Eddie: Are you doing any more promotional work?
Elrood: Yes, you will be handing out leaflets and I'll be running a competition on Facebook - so keep an eye out there.

Eddie: Thanks for coming in today, Elrood.
Elrood: My pleasure, now get those spelling mistakes in the manuscript sorted out.
