Oh, it’s you!

That’s something that’s never happened to me before. I was introduced to someone today who told me ‘Oh, I’m just reading your book! I really like the way it deals with the role of women, how they’re treated.’ They then told me they enjoyed the Indian setting too, and I was chuffed, I tell you, chuffed.

I suppose, then, this is as good a time as any to remind you copies are available on Amazon, but if you fancy a signed copy, then head over to my Etsy shop and I’ll be happy to squiggle all over the title page for you. Heck, if I’m feeling generous I might even slip one of my watercolour leaf paintings in too.

That’s the sort of thing that happens when I’m in a good mood.

  1. How lovely for you, Mick. I can’t offer to buy one of your books (and I know you’re not hinting at that at all). I can’t read anyone else’s books, either, come to that, not because I don’t think I’ll like them, but purely because, as I think I’ve said before, I don’t get time to read, especially when I have coursework to do and my blog to maintain and everyone else’s to read.

    I was glad to hear that you’d met this person and that they were so complimentary. I do occasionally look at your art page. I can see some new ones there today, which I’m sure weren’t there before. I particularly like the one of the person playing the cello, or is it a double base (or something else altogether?) I love the serene colours of the Falklands photo, but my absolute favourite is still your famous blue door. As you know, I have a ‘thing’ about doors – they fascinate me. Your travel photos often have pictures of doors in them, which I really enjoy. Once again, Mick, well done on having had another sale of your book. Was it the Making Friends with a Crocodile one or the Night Bus? I hope you have many more sales and keen readers like the one you wrote about today. Have a good day, my friend.

    1. It’s a cello in the charcoal drawing. I remember you saying you like the blue door (I’m quite fond of it myself, actually!),

      It was Making Friends With the Crocodile – the Night Bus is a collection of poems and short stories, rather than a novel.

      Thanks, Ellie. Take care.

    1. Now, I wonder if that could be done? I could always make a special edition with a signature in, I suppose, but then I’d have to send a jpeg of a watercolour leaf, too.

      Oh, everything’s so complicated.

      Chuffed is indeed good!

  2. This happened to me at a restaurant once where my friend brought a copy of my book for me to sign and the waitress was like, β€œhey? I just read that book.” It was so exciting! Congrats πŸΎπŸŽŠπŸŽˆπŸŽ‰ Mick!
