I’m going to be launching my book at The Riverside Bookshop in Tooley Street near London Bridge and will be on-site on the 2nd November (exactly a week after the book comes out) to sign pre-ordered copies. If you’d like to order from a fabulous indie bookshop and get a more personalised signed copy then drop them a line here. Tell them who you’d like me to dedicate it to – I’ll also write any short message you’d like to include. Within Reason. Keep it clean, people. Pre-orders really help authors make an impact, and ordering from an independent bookshop rather than the big river site helps keep local businesses going so please do give it a go.
My very first job in magazines was in a poky, grubby office just round the corner from London Bridge. It was very stressful – we had no budget, virtually no staff, punishing deadlines and I was very much out of my depth. When the pressure got too much I’d escape to Hay’s Galleria and the Riverside Bookshop. Browsing a bookshop or library has always helped me de-stress and the beautiful location made me feel all Londony and grown-up. Now I’m launching my book there!
