Word of Google?

I had two comments regarding my last post. One which appeared to be in a far eastern script and one that suggested my books had sold by 'word of Google'. What a brilliant turn of phrase. Apparently, my post had turned up in his box under the guise of Christian bookshop. I'm way out of my depth with all this social networking. However, if it encourages folk to buy one of my books, bring it on. I feel like I'm hanging on to a kite's tail in a gale, blindfolded.

The radio interview on Saturday was great fun. I love the sense of community TwoValleysRadio and their sister station ELFM create.

Two events coming up in April. I'll be one of the guest authors in an Authors Bonanza held in Holmfirth Library on the 28th and will be speaking to the Mothers' Union on the 29th.

Exciting news

Createspace sold thirteen books last week in the USA! Is this the beginning of 'word of mouth' sales???

I'll be taking part in an internet 'Two Valleys Radio' programme on Saturday. My friends and I from Holmfirth Writers will be promoting our collaborative book 'Reflections on Holme' to be launched in June.

Work is progressing at a pace on the novel, hence my absence from these pages. Watch this space...

We're back!

Home again in England and lots to catch up with. Must just give a plug to 'Holy Grounds' Christian bookshop and coffee house in Grapevine, Texas. It's a brilliant shop with a gloriously inviting aroma of fresh brewed coffee when you open the door so well worth a visit. Best of all, when I asked if they were interested in selling my book, they instantly bought six copies!
