A weekend in numbers

Five hundred and forty five miles, three nights in hotels, two bookshops, contact with five old friends re-established, two Valentine’s Night dinners, one celebrity wedding missed, only seven pubs visited, thousands of words spoken to interested/ing book buyers, never enough books sold!

Thanks to Stanton at Castle Bookshop, Ludlow and to Peter and Eleanor at Lingham’s Booksellers in Heswall on the Wirral for their hospitality, support, encouragement – and coffee.

Anyone in Ludlow, Shropshire?

I will be at the Castle Bookshop next Friday (13th February) from 10am till 12pm hoping to interest you in Her Parents’ Daughter (and my other titles). I will also be happy to discuss my self-publishing experience and offer – not advice, I wouldn’t presume – any benefit that may be gained from my, very individual, experiences. I am looking forward to renewing acquaintance with the Charlton Arms and the Church, not to mention the shops – I wonder how many of my once regular suppliers still survive three years after I left….

Anyone in Heswall?

I will be at Linghams Booksellers next Saturday (14th February) from 11am till 1pm. It’s a few years since I was actually on the Wirral though I have spent much of the past ten years there in my head as four of my six books have been rooted in my life there in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Changed beyond all recognition is the phrase that springs to mind.

Hoping to see you there….
