Coincidence or a Small World?

This week at Book Promo I was chatting to a lovely lady who told me she was from Dundee, I added that I had an author friend from Dundee, well Montrose to be precise. I then went on to talk about Dundee Crime Writer, Chris Longmuir. 'Aha!' She cried, 'I've met her and read Dead Wood.' It turned out that Chris had been in hospital last year and had spoken to this lady. She remembered Chris giving her a card with her book details on. 'Now I've met you I'll look up Chris's new book,' she said. And of course I added, 'And don’t forget when you need a break from murder and mayhem, take a peek at my books too.' Nodding her head and with a sunny smile this holiday maker looked up at me and said, 'Having read your leaflet, they sound just what I love to read when not stalking murders!'


Talking of Book Promo, I've had a t/shirt printed to wear when I'm chatting about my books to super peeps. May need to make a few changes, but I'll see how it goes next week.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope the sun is shining with you. Catch up again soon.

Great story! and great T-shirt. My children gave me the transfer materials and T-Shirt needed to do what you did several Xmases ago and I haven't got around to it yet. I must do that! I think the FIREWALLS cover would look amazing.

Fabulous Pauline. Proves it's always worth taking the time to chat. What is the expression? 6 degrees of separation? It does seem as if the world is growing smaller.
