With Christmas approaching, events are hotting up and I'm out in bookshops every Saturday and Sunday between now and Christmas, with signings every day between 17th and 22nd December. On Sunday I remembered to take my camera to Waterstones in Uxbridge and here's a photo record of my day:
I arrived before the store opened. I like to be early! Luckily I knew a coffee shop was just over the road so I was able to take a break before the day had even begun.
As usual, the bookshop put on a great display.
Here we go with the first sale of the day! Pretty soon the books were flying off the table, with a lot of fans dropping by for Road Closed and Dead End. Like the first guy to buy one of my books, readers new to Geraldine Steel were happy to buy Cut Short.
A lot of readers decided to buy all 3 books, either for themselves or as Christmas presents. Here's a selection of customers w ho were kind enough to agree to let me photograph them in the bookshop!
This lady bought a few copies of Dead End as Christmas presents.
At last Michael arrived at 3 o'clock and we went out for tea!
Another book signing event was over, we had virtually sold out, with just 4 books left for the shelves, and the bookshop was pleased.
I really enjoy signing at this store and look forward to returning there
Thank you to Waterstones in Uxbridge for hosting a signing, and to all the local readers who came in to support their local bookshop.
