It has been a busy literary week for me. Thankfully I’m fully recovered from covid after last week; my energy returned in the nick of time for some more book events.
Today I sold copies of my novels at my first Christmas Fayre event. I sold all copies of The Fairy Lights, most copies of The Blue Man and a few of The Buddha’s Bone and Gods of Avalon Road. Like my festive look here? I thought I’d get into the yuletide spirit and do some Xmas shopping while I was at it, with all the homemade treats and arts and crafts stalls at the Fayre.
Earlier in the week I had to post 5 x hardcover copies of The Blue Man to Edinburgh for legal deposit, upon request. That means my books will be kept at the National Library of Scotland, The Bodleian Library Oxford University, the National Library of Wales, Cambridge University Library and The Library of Trinity College Dublin in addition to the British Library where they will be available in the reading rooms of each.
I’ve also received an order via Gardners Books for Waterstones click and collect at a destination elsewhere in the UK, which means I had to order more author copies since I sold most/all of my books today. But, since there’s currently a postal strike going on, I’ve decided to wait until Monday to sort that out, just in case my order gets lost in the mail.
Whew! What a busy week it has been in the run up to crimbo. At least all my Xmas prezzies are sorted, so that’s one more thing off the list!
