God Bless Waterstones

I arrive home this morning feeling a bit crumpled.

I had been out with my friend Om last night, and were making good in-roads into a bottle of wine, when I was called by Emma, my sister. Emma is what you might term VERY pregnant and consequently, I have been on standby to go and look after her daughter when she goes into hospital to have the baby.

“I think I’m in labour,” she said.

I rushed across town and got to her house just in time for her contractions to stop. Just in case they started again, I slept on the sofa.

Hence me arriving home this morning feeling a bit crumpled.

I flick on my computer and see a mail from Trevor, my publisher. Good news, he says, “March 2010: The Mango Orchard to be promoted front of store in all Waterstones stores with a 3 for 2 offer.”

I’ve always liked those Waterstones people!

  1. Robin, I am so chuffed for you that you have got published. I am in the process of doing the same thing and I recognise that it is an uphill struggle.

    I will buy it in hardback and get you to sign it - sounds like a cracking read!
