Erin Green Author - blog
One of the many joys of being an author is getting to sign your book and surprise readers. Today, whilst nipping through Tamworth, I dropped into The Works in Ankerside Shopping centre to have a nosey and see if they have any of my books in stock. They did 'Sunny Stays at the Shetland Hotel' book 3 in the series was on the shelf. I had a little count and a little shuffle around of the display shelf - naughty, but hey, all authors do it to make our own book look great!
Anyway, I asked the member of staff how many he had in total? He explained that they get different numbers for each book but he'd check the stock for me - he had 8 in total. I then came clean and explained that I was the author of the book I was pointing at and he asked me to sign each copy. Woop woop! Happy days, I love it when that happens! So reader, I did.
In return, I gave him a pile of my freebie Erin Green coasters (coffee, milk, gin, beer, wine - suitable for whatever your poison may be, to give to customers. So if you need an Erin Green book 3 for your collection and are passing The Works in Tamworth nip inside - you might be lucky and find a signed one.
P.s. I put a different message inside each and signed them 'love from Erin and The Work, Tamworth!'
