I live with my husband in Devizes in Wiltshire where I spend my time writing, reading, riding (I am the lucky owner of a beautiful horse, Blue), and keeping up with my four children and an increasing number of small grandchildren (eight so far). I was for many years a nurse and a Relate counsellor. I have taught creative writing both at a local college and a prison, and I review a wide variety of items - including books - for the Amazon Vine programme.I write to death row prisoners in America, being a life-long opponent jof the death penalty. And I spend too much time blogging..
I can be contacted by email: email@example.com
How utterly cool!ReplyDelete
Thanks, guys. And just in case you're tired of all my bragging, Waterstone's didin't want it. So there was bad news as well as good (must give both sides of the story...)Or, as the verification word has just put it: dowspoReplyDelete
Brilliant! Guess this means a visit to Tesco!ReplyDelete
I've always thought that being in a drugstore or grocery store would be the height of success.ReplyDelete
I'm probably influenced by growing up in towns where there were no actual bookstores, so most of my early bookbuying experiences were in places that are roughly the California equivalent of Tesco.
Go outside and face east. The green of my envy should be visible somewhere on the horizon!
Waterstones DIDN'T WANT IT? As my children would say WTF???ReplyDelete
Excellent to be in Tesco's though, and Smiths and all those other places WHERE IT IS!!!
It will be very sweet revenge when the book's such a success that W's have to start stocking it.
Hi David - thanks very much for that, but shouldn't I be looking West and not East...?ReplyDelete
Hi Alis - yes, I was disappointed about Waterstones, but my youngest son is a management consultant specialising in retail, and he says that (I think) £1 in every £9 we spend is spent in Tescos (not necessarily on books!), so I'm grateful for that. How's the novel going? and the Son?
