There is so much to say about my first book signing event over the weekend. It was on Saturday, but I was still selling copies of WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME on Sunday, even today on a Monday and the kindle version has shot up the Amazon charts in the UK.
It was also attended by close friends, fellow authors from near and far, together with three ladies from the Mill Hill Cancer Research shop and other locals who had seen the event advertised. My editor Julie Tucker and I are Cancer Campaigns Ambassadors for Cancer Research UK and had decided that some of the proceeds of the event would go to the charity. We were delighted to raise over £80 on the day and the amount is still increasing plus with a further charity book signing event arranged at the next-door library at the end of this month, which will also be in aid of CRUK.
Many bought multiple copies of the book and were delighted to have them signed by little old me. The assembled crowd enjoyed refreshments provided by Teatro and apparently sat in rapt silence as I read out, rather nervously I may add, the chapter ‘Cups and Oranges’. For those of you not in attendance, at the end of this post is that chapter that I would like to share with you.
