Mme. Perry: Will You Love Me Tomorrow has an unlikely beginning with one of the main characters planning their own death. Every character is thrown into situations where they must deal, for their own purposes and with no real experience, with the shady individuals from the record label, media and the various inevitable flotsam in their periphery. You have quite a nimble hand at rendering all of these people with their agendas and interactions. Obviously you are very familiar with the business side of music.
Danny Gillan:Not really, to be honest. I certainly have plenty of experience with the business of being an unsuccessful musician. I did have some dealings with managers, producers, record companies etc when I was a lot younger, but nothing like the characters in the book experience.

DG: Thank you for inviting me, it’s been a pleasure. I hope you enjoy the short stories. Some of them experiment with new genres for me, including the traditional Scottish writers’ realms of crime, violence, guns and misery. Hope that’s not too much of a shock. There’s even one that should probably be classed as sci-fi - it’s terrible. A few of them are still just about daft idiots, mind.
MP: You, dear readers, have many options available by which to follow Gillan's books and music. You'll find him on Amazon, Goodreads, Smashwords, his blog, Not enough? Stalk him on Twitter and Facebook, too!
And of course the last word goes to Gillan's long suffering, unselfish, always supportive pal, Jake.
