It’s publication day for The Companion! I am now officially a published author and Billy and Anna’s story is out in the world. I will be celebrating later with rhubarb gin and prosecco cocktails.
Yesterday I had a lovely trip to London. I signed 50 copies of The Companion at Goldsboro Books, who specialise in signed first editions, then had lunch and prosecco with my editor and publicist, Laura and Leanne. I then wandered in to Waterstones Piccadilly and found The Companion on display as a ‘Hardback Delight’.
Before going home I popped into the British Library for a cup of tea and while remembering my time there as a trainee librarian I had a sudden ‘wow’ moment when I realised that there would be a copy of The Companion on its shelves very soon.
