8th October: Things are moving fast. The atmosphere at the Waterstones Hastings signing was great, with a real buzz in the shop. Loads of people came to hear stories from the two smugglers with me and the young people enjoyed examining all the props. Sold 21 copies that day, and now there’s a great word-of-mouth thing going on.
19th August: I’ve just come back from doing readings and book signings in the Smugglers’ Adventure tourist attraction. It was great, a really spooky atmosphere, and everyone loved the book covers.
I write material for Cornelsen Verlag English language teaching software and I’ve been teaching EFL for 33 years.
2012 Cornelsen have published the Smugglers’ Caves as a simplified reader, so now my original Completely Novel version can only be sold at Hastings outlets. i’m delighted that my editor at Cornelsen took it on after reading my completely novel original.
