A friendly takeover…


As you can see I am going to my first book signing in December! Very exciting. It is the stick behind the door that makes me work on my re-write so hard at the moment 🙂 .

The other day I read on their FB page that there were ‘takeover slots’ available. I had no idea what takeovers were, so I tried to ignore it. Bit of ostrich politics on my part, I know. But there was no escaping as I was tagged and told that I needed to pick a slot. I had to ask what a takeover was. I don’t like signing up for something if I don’t know what I’m letting myself in for.

A takeover is basically a two-hour session online during which you can promote yourself to the audience (of the book fair). I can tell a bit about myself, I can promote my books, my other work, I can even (the horror of it) play games! That last one had me really scared… Fortunately the ladies who organise the fair are very helpful and said they would guide me through the session. Everybody is a noob once and they understand my position completely.

I find it amazing how many nice people I have met through writing. Most of them are so helpful and nice. And a really fun bunch! I am so glad I have found something to do that I like and in good company as well. I thank you all!
