Today at Waterstones




Top pic - Phillipa Ashley - whose book 'Just say Yes' is out soon, me and my good friend Faith, who Blue Remembered Heels is dedicated too - Heck, this poor girl shared an office with me for over nine years and is still relatively sane.
Allison - brilliant historical writer and my coffee buddy!
Me - trying to look authorly.
Special thanks to all the staff at Waterstones, Merry Hill, Josie, Jo and Emma who were so lovely and organised and totally fab!
Hugs and thanks to everyone who came along today - you all rock!!

Don't forget cyber party here on Monday!

From one Black Country author to another, many congratulations! I wish I'd have known you were doing a book signing at Merry Hill! I only live about a 20 minutes drive.

But still, many congratulations :) The pictures are wonderful btw. You must be over the moon.

Very authorly indeed. Glad you had a wonderful time - you look wonderful. And so do those chocs in the cocktail glass...

Nell said...

The chocs were from Hotel Chocolat - Waterstones provided them and very scrummy they were too!

Kate Walker said...

You look beautiful Nell - and congratulations on the official publication date of Blue Remembered Heels. I have my very special copy on my TBR pile - the only trouble is that I have this book to write myself.

The Babe Magnet sends love and congratulations too - he enjoyed talking with you at RNA
