The Joy of Seeing Your Own Books

October 25th, 2008 • Posted in News |

My books have been out in the UK for a good couple of months now, but until today I hadn’t seen them in a bookshop (apart from the day of the launch in my local indie bookstore).  But today the family and I went to Abergavenny – Dan needed some new wellies, I needed fruit jellies – and I popped into Waterstone’s.  Never that hopeful, I approached the Fantasy and Science Fiction aisle … and saw the gorgeous blue cover of FALLEN staring at me.  And not just one copy, either … two copies!

Feeling a bit cheeky, I approached the staff and mentioned the book, asked if they’d like me to sign it.  A lovely lady there almost bit my hand off!  So I signed the books – happily – and they asked if they could have a proof copy to read, so that they can write one of those little ‘recommended’ cards and stick it in front of the books.

Ah, I do so love my job.

Right, tonight I am mostly drinking real ale and watching The Invasion.  Something tells me I’ll wish I hadn’t (watched The Invasion, that is) … but time will tell.

    All your books in Guildford have gone! I’m taking this as a good sign that they have all been brought up.

    Waterstones in Belfast has one copy left of The Everlasting, tucked away in the horror section under the stairs. They did have about a dozen when it came out so it seems to sold okay.

    Thanks guys, that’s good to hear. Let’s hope the shops re-order!
