I went down to London at the weekend to do a signing at Blackwell's HIgh Holborn and was delighted to see that not only was Ursula;s Secret their indie book of the month (which gives purchasers a cup of coffee in the onsite Benugo café with every copy of the book), they have also included it as part of their current 3 for 2 promotion and put Ursula in the window! Very exciting, and really appreciate the support- thanks Blackwell's. Enjoyed meeting two of Blackwell's lovely booksellers, Wil and Dave, on the day who were very welcoming and I just generally had a good time - despite the rain. Thanks also to Black & White Publishing for organising it.
Very excited to find Ursula's Secret on the crime table in Waterstones West End today snuggling up to Agatha Christie, so just had to share the moment...
And also pleased to find a copy lurking a little more discreetly on the bottom crime shelf here...
Great night last Wednesday at the launch of Ursula's Secret here in Edinburgh and a huge thank you to everyone who came along and made it such a special evening. Black and White Publishing took a few photos and have posted them on their Facebook page here. They have also put up another couple of videos where they interviewed me about writing and about the book - we covered a lot of the same ground at the book launch so if you couldn't make it along but are interested to know a bit more, there's one about the book here and another here just where I'm talking more generally. Hope you enjoy!
PS I was sitting in Waterstones' Café W earlier last week and smiling that probably for the only time in my life I was ahead of Ian Rankin in Waterstones...then watched as they wrote up SOLD OUT...
