We did it!

And I’m still grinning from ear to ear, somewhat stunned...

For anyone still awaiting paperbacks, they should mostly be sent by now but anyone who pledged for a signed copy has slightly longer to wait. This is due to Sod’s law, as I was unexpectedly up in London just two ickle days before publication day. Very annoying, because it would have been the ideal time to go to Unbound’s office and get them signed. Instead, I signed all 82 copies here at home last night and Unbound are arranging a courier to collect them again on Monday :-(  I'd hoped they might pick them up tomorrow...

I was in London as a last-minute replacement to read from the book at Paul Burston’s renowned Polari Literary Salon at the Southbank Centre. It was a wonderful evening, so hopefully may garner a few more sales. I love being back in the Big Smoke, especially round Waterloo and Southbank, such a special area for me, having worked at Eurostar in the 90s...

I’m working on an official launch event, which I’ll announce soon. It’ll be small, but at a venue that means a lot to me and features in the book...

In the meantime, please do pop a review on Amazon if you have a few moments to spare, it can apparently help, so feel free to say your piece. So far, the response has been lovely, so I’m enormously relieved, but I know I’ll have to steel myself for the inevitable 1 or 2 star reviews at some point. But I’m basking at the moment and just thrilled at some of the wonderful comments...

As always, thank you SO MUCH for helping to make this dream come true, I just LOVE being able to say that I’m a published author! x
