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!!
