I spent a very pleasant afternoon on Saturday at Borders Books in the Glasgow Fort retail park, just outside of Glasgow city centre. I had been invited to sign copies of Silly Beggar for customers and to talk to them about the book.
I was very well looked after by the friendly staff and given a good position at the front of the store to catch customers as soon as they walked in. They had also put up a nice big display of the book, with posters, elsewhere in the store, advertising my appearance.
Several customers had heard of our book thanks to the publicity it received last month in the national papers, the Chris Evans show and one customer commented that she had thorougly enjoyed my Richard and Judy interview!
All in all, a great event in a great store. It looked like the staff enjoyed their work and the store really does have a fantastic atmosphere. I was invited back in the run up to Christmas and I plan on taking them up on the offer.
