Well I promised to let you know how the UK Southern Book Show went on Sunday. It was definitely a success and that was down to the hard work of Natasha Murray who organised this event on Worthing Pier.
I managed to sell quite a few books as well as having the opportunity to meet lots of lovely people both public and other authors. It was a delight to finally meet fellow writer, Colin Ward after many hours spent chatting about writing ideas over the internet. I was happy to hold a copy of his debut poetry collection, Ripples, in my hand and it was smashing to meet the lovely Daisy White for the first time too. Daisy offered me lots of invaluable advice before I embarked on self-publishing House of Grace. I can’t wait to start reading her latest novel Before I found you which Daisy was happy to sign.
Special thanks goes to my daughter who not only went out of her way to come and collect and drive me to Worthing, but also helped set up our stall and spoke to potential buyers about my book. I might add that she was very under the weather so I’m truly grateful to her. Get well soon, Elaine.
Members of the public popped into the Pavilion to wander around 55 stands full of books from different genres. Some people planned the visit whilst others wandered in to get out of the rain and couldn’t resist picking themselves up a few bargains.
Theatre seats filled as speakers ran throughout the day, including a talk from me about my Creative Writing Journey of House of Grace and a short reading from the opening chapter. The talks were varied and interesting.
On Friday, March, 9th, 2018, it’s House of Grace’s first birthday. To celebrate this milestone, I’m running a special promotion on Amazon Kindle.
For a very limited period you can pick up an ecopy for only 99p.
I know, it sounds too good to be true but yes, I am selling it for 99p.
The story is about family, love, fashion, conflict and tragedy.
At 99p it has to be worth a try, don’t you think?
Today is Day 4 so not many days left – the clock is ticking…
If you prefer a paperback you can purchase that from Amazon too, or order from any good bookstore.
