I was delighted to take delivery of two packages this morning.
The first, from SoloPress, contained promotional bookmarks for my two novels, Eleven Miles and Knitting Can Walk!. I have taken great care in designing these and the quality of the product is excellent. I shall be handing them out at forthcoming events and leaving them in friendly cafés, retail outlets and libraries. I’ll also be taking a batch along with me to the Swanwick Writers’ Summer School next month.
The second package was from Lulu. It contained ten copies each of Eleven Miles, Knitting Can Walk! and When Pleasure Blooms (by Auridius O’Conner). These will be on sale in the bookroom at the Swanwick Writers’ Summer School.
Also in the package from Lulu was a copy of Space Dust by my very good friend, Eloise De Sousa. This is a super children’s book that introduces a series about the adventures of Big Ox and Little One as they travel around in space in Big Ox’s canoe, propelled by his absolute favourite spoon. It is a lot of fun and the illustrations that are painted by the author are enchanting.
