No pictures please.

I do some work for a bookshop.

Unless you're an adult bookshop, one would think bookstores have little more threatening to deal with than the occasional out-of-stock situation. Not so, apparently.

We were about to send a promotional ad to the printers when the client asked us to hold the ad. They then asked us to take out the picture of one of the titles on offer.

The name of the book is Godless.

"We just don't want any trouble."

And then they instructed us to mention the book and author in the ad's body copy, and that it was available for 30% off.
