On Saturday 14th July, I spent a lovely day at the Shoreham Boutique Market. I was promoting my book, 'Unexpected Answers enjoying chatting to people while selling signed copies for customers. It's a great venue and the day had the added bonus of a Ukelele band for an hour or so!
My daughter and I had a great time at the Hursley Park Book Fair on 23rd & 24th June. We met up with other authors, sharing ideas and information. Promoting 'Unexpected Answers' is such a learning curve, it's good to know that others are in the same boat. Photographs from Hursley Park Book Fair
