My book is in an actual bookshop!

Today I had the pleasure of seeing my book on the shelves of a local bookshop - not only that but also right beside the till! I was totally overcome - I had to walk away for a bit. I'm not even sure that I can put into words how it feels to see something that you wrote in a bookshop that you spend the better part of your life in.

And yes, I had a wee cry - there it  was, my story in the same shop as books by Stephen King, Dean Koontz and all those other authors who have inspired and amazed me over the years. Unbelievable!

As if that wasn't enough, I've also been asked to come in and do a book signing next month - best day EVER!!! Thank you Waterstones, Coleraine!!


  1. Congratulations Ashley! It's every writer's dream...

  2. How cool is that. See, REAL author :-) Really pleased for you

    1. Thank you so much, Peter. Finished reading 'Echo' yesterday and am now having serious withdrawal symptoms! Am truly in awe of your ability to create a whole new world, fill it with wonderful characters and draw a reader into it with a great story - that's a REAL author, my friend! Looking forward to reading the new chapters on your blog. Best wishes. :-)
