Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops - book signings
Coming up to Christmas, you can find me here:
Saturday 1st December 11am-2pm Tunbridge Wells, Kent: Waterstones
I'll be here, signing books.
Thursday 6th December 6pm-7:30pm King's Cross Station, London: Watermark Books
Next to platform 9 3/4s (yes, actually). I'll be there, as will a few other authors, to sign books. There will also be mince pies and mulled wine. Excellent.
If any other bookshops would like me to do a signing before Christmas (or if you're in London and would like me to stop by and sign stock at some point), just drop me an email.

From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
