Cover of Echo Hall

Merry Christmas and Thank you!!

Wednesday, 20 December 2017

Hello everyone.

First up, can I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year. 

This time last year I was revelling in the fact I'd reached 100%, today I'm still pinching myself that 'Echo Hall' is actually here. And it's all down to you for backing it. I will be forever grateful to you all for being part of my journey to publication. Many thanks also to everyone who has read it, reviewed it, or given me a blog post since the book came out. It is wonderful to see so much interest.

I hope by now that you have your copy and are enjoying it.Thank you so much to those I know(and those I don't) for being kind enough to spread the word, and buy 'Echo Hall' for friends and family. I'm delighted to say that so many of you have done this that it's been flying out of the warehouse and onto the online stores, almost before they've been able to replenish.  Not in best selling numbers (yet :-) ) but pretty decent for an unknown debut author.

Amazon have now restocked & Hive expect more soon, but as you know I am a huge fan of bookshops, so I've listed some below where you or your friends could order from. Albion Beatnik still had some left from the launch when I last visited, and The Bookshop, Bridport kindly bought 3 from me when I was there the other week and I understand Five Leaves have had some orders (even though I know it's not  their usual sort of book). I'm sure the others will be happy to take an order from you.

And then I have one last favour. When you've read the book, if you have time and are a verified Amazon customer, please could you leave a review? I don't mind whether you like it or not, (and honest reviews are best) but the more reviews Amazon gets the more coverage the book gets on Amazon. 

Thanks once again. You are all bloody marvellous.

Merry Christmas.

Much love,

Virginia
