I have received quite a number of enquiries from my loyal supporters who would like to know when I might be visiting their local Waterstones store next.
I've spent many an enjoyable Saturday in Waterstones, promoting my books and chatting to children about other books they enjoy. (I'm not precious about mine!). They talk to me about their own writing too.
Well, I'm afraid that for the foreseeable future it has to stop. Waterstones has changed their policy. They will be having different events that don't include people like me.
So thank you everyone for the happy times.
