On Saturday 29th June I met with friends, family and local readers at Waterstones Witney to talk about my new book, LYNNWOOD, and officially launch it in-store. It was one of the best days of my life and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to talk about reading, writing and horror in a semi-professional capacity. I was at first nervous that no one would turn up, then doubly so when people did start arriving and I realised quite how many people I would be talking to! But I gave it my best shot (a glass of wine helped) and everybody seemed delighted with what I had to say. The store sold out of their copies and I even managed a few signatures!
A lot of being a writer involves sitting on your own, working from thoughts in your own head. It therefore felt very strange to find myself standing in front of a group of people talking about my writing. I was really happy to see so many familiar faces among the crowd and absolutely recommend the experience to anyone with a new release, or something literary to say. I really hope you enjoy the pictures, and hope they tempt you to read into the book.
