Local author moment.

Sorry. I couldn't resist it. I spotted it in the window of Prospero's Books on Saturday, then went back with my camera today, Sunday.

That's my book, that is. I still can't really believe it. I think I needed to take photographic evidence to convince myself.

Oh hell yes.



Anne Brooke said...

Fantastic, Roger - well done!!



David Isaak said...

That must have been a dreamlike experience...

Go back with a friend and have yourself snapped standing beside it!

As others have already said - enjoy!

Thanks so much, Nik, Faye, Anne, David and Rhian. You're right, David, the whole thing is dreamlike. We spend years working away in isolation writing this stuff, obsessing over it, then finally, to see it in a bookshop, my local bookshop... there's a strange sense of dislocation. It's not mine any more.

Hey Roger...Just thought you might like to know that, according to the latest autogenerated e-mail from USA, "Customers who ordered The Gentle Axe" also ordered "Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows" and Charles Frazier's "Thirteen Moons."

One can only hope that everyone who ordered "Harry Potter & etc" will pick up a copy, eh?

Ha ha, David! That would be nice! Thanks for letting me know.
