The day went extremely well for me. It was really good to chat with customers, find out which books appealed most to the children, and of course sign books and make sales. The staff in Waterstones told me my sales figures were very strong for a one day event, despite the fact that I found myself trying to talk one particularly enthusiastic customer out of buying so many books.
"Are you sure you want all the books in hardback? That is going to be quite expensive."
Fortunately she was not dissuaded from her decision!
Interestingly, I found that the spread of sales across the titles was very even, although Birthday Cake Disaster proved to be the most popular (just!).
For those of you who are interested, there are currently signed copies of all my titles for sale in Bedford Waterstones.
