The book signing event in Rothesay went really well in spite of it being a blustery,wet day and at one stage I was holding my breath in case I would sell out. Just made it with a few to spare-whew!One buyer wanted 5 copies for Christmas presents which was interesting. I had thought it would be best to sell in the Spring/summer as there are so many books on the market for Christmas but it appears that isn't the case.
A big thank you to everyone who came along and who helped with the publicity. And while selling copies is good,nothing beats a buyer saying 'I loved your last book and have been looking forward to this one.'
The whole business of marketing your own books is a strange one and there are some people out there who have had a lot more experience than I have had. You must be prepared to tell people how good you think the latest one is and most of us are writers rather than promoters. Still,it's all part of the brave new world,I suppose!
