About me

8th October: Things are moving fast. The atmosphere at the Waterstones Hastings signing was great, with a real buzz in the shop. see press photos at http://www.fiona-skovronsky.vpweb.co.uk 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, and with Anna I’m rushing to get things organized so that Gardners can get the book easily in order to fulfil orders through Amazon, Waterstones etc. On Saturday, I’ll be signing copies at the Books Born in Hastings event at the town hall. 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.

By the way, the reason I haven't made it available to read online is mainly that the Smugglers' Adventure tourist attraction in hastings wants to sell it in their souvenir shop, and if it's available free online people may be less likely to buy it. If it goes well, I'll send you a copy for your children. (more) and gained+3

What kind of club were you thinking of? Thank you for what you said about me as a reader. Probably it's a lot to do with the fact that I can somehow identify with Renee even though I'm much older than her and so my concerns are mostly the concerns of a mum. Your novel is one where i want to push my work away and get back to reading. but I don't mind taking it slowly as I'll miss the characters when i finish it. (more) and earned+3

I was going to buy yours as that's the only way i can read it!!! You're a really good reader and I admire that skill so much. You read, translate and dissect as you go along. I was proof-reading and I'm hoping to download the newest before they print, hopefully take care. What do you say we start a book club? (more) and won+3

But i will go on sneaking in a few pages to give me a break from work. Am so delighted that Renee has been vindicated re what she thought about the tortoise 9don't want to give it all away for new readers). Am a lot older than Renee, but even now there are several things I'd love to be vindicated for. i've reached the stage of not needing to be right any more - it's easier. But that just makes my delight for Renee greater. hope the book will arrive soon. Apart from anything else, I really like the cover. would be good to get a discussion going on covers and how we all put our covers together. (more) and won+3

My tutor on a creative writing course last year told me that 4 is a numinous number, and that's why I kept to 4 in The Smugglers' Caves. am looking forward to getting back to your book. I wonder how old your children are. Mine are 20, 17 and 15, and I also have nephews and nieces who are with us a lot. Also all their friends. (more) and gained+3
