London Book Fair 2012

I have just spent three days at the London Book Fair, helping out on the Choc Lit stand and it’s been great fun!  The huge halls at Earl’s Court were absolutely buzzing, the excitement of all the discussions going on around us almost tangible.  Just being surrounded by so many books and book-related things is wonderful, and judging by everyone’s enthusiasm, I wasn’t alone in enjoying it.

Apart from the fact that we were handing out lovely little chocolate hearts wrapped in mauve foil (we sampled quite a few), I got to speak to lots of interesting people.  And just watching everyone go by was fascinating too!

From the many languages I overheard it seemed that just about every country was represented and I had a chance to try out my best Spanish (very rusty!!) and some Swedish of course.  I even had a go at Japanese, but was quite relieved to find the lady in question spoke extremely good English since my vocabulary is fairly limited!

There were some great displays too and the one I liked the best is this arch made out of books – I’m very tempted to try and duplicate this at home!  (But I doubt I’ll succeed …)  All in all, a great three days!

Belated Happy Easter!

I should have wished everyone a Happy Easter days ago, but I’ve been immersed in editing The Silent Touch of Shadows so that it will be ready for publication on time.  So belated Easter wishes and I hope you all had a lovely Easter!

Apart from working through most of it, I had a peaceful and relaxing time, which is just as well since next week will be extremely hectic.  I’ll be at the London Book Fair helping to man the Choc Lit stand and I’m really looking forward to that as it should be great fun!  If anyone is passing, please stop by to say hello to us – there may be chocolates!
