I recently had an exciting day at Waterstones in Colchester.

After some serious negotiations with the manager, she agreed to give me a table in the shop, which was really kind of her.

I was extremely nervous - what would people think - was it a cheek, a local writer having the presumption to do a book signing.

But I started chatting to people and everyone was really nice and interested in the writing and publishing process.

The highlight was speaking to a Doctor of English at Suffolk University, who now wants me to talk to her students.

I started selling at 10am and by 2pm I had sold out - I was the top seller in Colchester that day with over 3 times as many sales as anyone else - I think the second place was Eleanor Oliphant - what a day 🙂
