Sell Out at the New Forest Show
What a fantastic three days we had at the New Forest Show!
The show itself was being staged for the first time since 2019, so I guess it was predictable that attendance numbers would be high (I was later told that all on-line tickets had sold out in two hours!). We weren't disappointed - the show was heaving and full of that country show atmosphere as only the New Forest can do it.
Given that I live just eight miles from the main gate, I guess it's not surprising that I have a local reputation. So it was perhaps to be expected when visitor after visitor greeted me like an old friend, pointing out the books they had bought at previous events and looking to see which new publications had been added to the table.
So much so, that sales were 25% up on 2019 and my new book Too (the sequel to Vicious) was a near sell out - we were left with just two copies (a fitting number I guess!) to take home.
Don't worry - the reprint order has already been placed.

My next event will be the New Forest Fairy Festival at Burley on 13th-14th August. See you there!
