Dead Scared

Book & Bun

Thanks are due to the Book and Bun in Newmarket Street, who have kindly taken on some copies of As They Grow Older  to sell. Let's hope they succeed.
   It may be that I will give a little presentation there, too: All About Editing (or some such title), to be given to the creative writing group that meets there. More on that later, if it comes to pass.

SAST graded meet

The South Ayrshire Swim Team graded meet took place last weekend. Son no. 3 did well. For those who don't understand what a graded meet is (which we didn't when he competed in his first one), you can only enter if your time is below a set time, and if you beat that time in a race, you aren't placed. Even if you came first.
   Never mind, that's not why this post is here. It's here because SAST kindly allowed me to display As They Grow Older, and I sold another eight copies, some of the money going to SAST. Thanks very much to those who bought a copy, and I hope you enjoy it.
  I'm gradually working my way through my list of marketing tasks: I'm not very good at it, but I'm getting there!

Fame but no fortune

A couple of weeks ago I ventured into the offices of the Ayrshire Post and asked them if they would run a story about As They Grow Older . Well, they have; sort of. Perhaps not surprisingly they focused on what they saw as the human angle rather than the book itself.

Ivy, of course, doesn't come from HK but from mainland China. I hummed and hawed about whether to point this out, but in the end I didn't. I have a couple of ATGO marketing ideas up my sleeve - more about those anon.
