On Saturday, the good folks of Waterstone’s in Kirkcaldy invited me to a book signing. They had set up a table at the front of the store and had handed out lots of flyers to promote the event.
The local paper, the Fife Free Press, had also advertised the event with a brief description of the book and played upon the ‘local’ angle by revealing my birthroots in Kirkcaldy!
The day was a lot of fun and I enjoyed speaking to readers, customers and staff throughout the signing.
Thanks to the power of the press coverage, a few browsing customers remembered hearing about (or reading about) the book and even some of the extracts printed in the Daily Mirror and Daily Record.
