On Saturday we were at WH Smith's in Ormskirk for a meet and greet and book signing. This was our first outing with the new book Monty and the Ocean Rescue and it proved to be a big success.
WH Smith have become a fantastic supporter of local and self published authors and we had a great welcome from Scott and his staff. We were excellently looked after, which made it really enjoyable for both us and the customers.
The store was buzzing all day as it sits within a bustling market town high street. The activity levels were
also helped by the appearance of Monty who always manages to attract a crowd wherever he goes and as we were placed at the front of the store a lot of passers by were drawn to come and say hello.
Monty was his usual friendly and loving self and wowed the customers particularly the ladies as is his way. So many children posed for photos next to him that the door became blocked on a few occasions but everybody enjoyed the lovely atmosphere.
The books were very popular and we signed, pawtagraphed and dedicated plenty throughout the day and we had plenty of very satisfied customers who had managed to meet the star of the stories.
All in all it was a great day and one we're sure to be repeating in the near future.
