The Big Launch

Hello all! It's been a busy few weeks. I've been working away on tea set commissions, and taking long and stormy train journey's up to Scotland, for the launch of The Sea Dancer at St Abbs! 

The day of the launch was a very misty day indeed, but it cleared out into beautiful sunshine, and was a great day all round. We sold lot's of books, and met many interesting and lovely people. It was so exciting seeing the book in large towering piles, and stacked up on shelves. The Smokehouse Gallery seemed to be festooned with Sea Dancers! People world wide were grabbing copies to take home to relatives! 

If you missed out on the book launch, then do not disspare! We are going to be at the Border's Book Festival in Melrose on the 20th of June. Jennifer will be doing a reading of the book , and afterwards, I will be helping the little ones to make Sea Dancer headdresses, and there will be poster's to colour too. It is a family event, and to get ticket's, go to the the Border's Book Festival Website

The latest exciting new's is that the book will now also be for sale at the wonderful Edinburgh International Book Festival! So if you are in Edinburgh in August, you can pick up a copy then.
