What a cracking show! Thanks to all of you who came and supported our stand at the Alresford Show on Saturday. It was a brilliant, brilliant day. A massive thanks to my assistant, George, who performed (as always) particularly well with his snail demonstrations, not forgetting Bob, Gary, Sidney and the newly-named George, our wonderful giant African land snails.
As I sit here typing this, snail trails glistening in the early morning sun outside, I am happy to announce a further extension of Show price books – 3 for 2 – for a short period only. If you’d like a book and missed us on the day, do email me. People are already buying their books for Christmas, so get your order in with requests for your special messages. George signed his first book on Saturday which was a real thrill for him. ‘I felt quite proud …’ he told me later.
If you’d like a school visit, then do email your questions through. Bookings are well under way, as are creative writing workshops for primary to college students, including our newly-promoted creative writing enrichment programme. We are currently looking at author-on-line arrangements with primary schools for on-line assistance. Email for a free catalogue if this is of interest to email@example.com and I’ll get back to you asap.
Forthcoming titles include The Lost Shell, The Legend of Old McSlithers (for our younger readers) not forgetting Snalien (for 7-11 year olds).
Happy snailing to you all!
