The children - Ellen Medway, 10, Benjamin Young, 8, and Emily Richardson, 11 - were also asked by Nicky to become official reviewers for some of Waterstones’ new titles. I know how excited they are about it!
I’d also like to say a big thank you to all my friends who came along to support me, including Barbara Large MBE, founder and director of the Winchester Writers’ Conference, as well as the Hampshire Writers’ Society. And last but not least, thank you to Jenny Knowles, of Little Knoll Press, my publisher, who made this all happen.
All in all the night was a brilliant success, we had over forty people at the event. Lots of amazing messages were written in a guest book that my publisher gave me, some of them are below including the “million million” rating that Paulo gave me!
The goblins are ready and waiting, I hope there are lots more Goblins’ fans out there ...
PS Orlando enjoyed his first event so much that I hear he will be starting his very own blog soon!
