As contributors to the RNA’s golden anniversary anthology of short stories, Loves Me, Loves Me Not, we were delighted to be invited to the Torbay Bookshop in Paignton to meet readers and other writers, and to sign copies of LMLMN.
Although Monday February 8th was as cold and wet as most English winter evenings, dozens of people turned up to see us and buy books. Torbay bookshop owners Sarah and Matthew made us very welcome indeed, and provided wine and fruit juice for everyone, even Linda’s little grandson, who was as good as gold, and is obviously going to grow up to become a great reader!
The Torbay bookshop is one of the most successful and most highly-regarded independent booksellers in the whole of the UK, and we were delighted to be able to take part in an event in such a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
