Just thought I’d post you a short update on the British launch of Around The World In Wonder Socks.
My old home town of Rhyl did me proud. I was invited to cut the ribbon to officially open the new studio of Point FM radio station and then took part in a half hour interview. Even the mayor turned up.
Later in the day there was standing room only for a talk I gave at the town library. The event was a little late starting as more chairs had to be brought in, always a good sign. I’m sure the free wine on offer had very little to do with the high turnout!
Better still there was a queue to buy the book, although it was admittedly short.
I’ve added a gallery of pictures from the two events so you can get a sense of it.
I’m now in for a busy couple of weeks promoting the book. I have a number of talks and regional and national radio interviews lined up.. For those of you who’ve asked they’ll all be available live via the Internet. They can also be listened to via the web as ‘listen again’ features. As they are all BBC stations they’ll be broadcast in top quality.
