Wonder Socks Have Lift Off

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.

Here’s the latest schedule, click on the links to hear:

Wed Sept 9th BBC Radio Northampton 2pm (UK) 11pm (AUS)

Fri Sept 11th BBC Radio Wales 10.30am (UK) 7.30pm (AUS)

Wed Sept 16th BBC Three Counties 1030am  (UK) 7.30pm (AUS)

Thurs Sept 17th BBC Coventry and Warwickshire (UK) 1030 am 7.30pm (AUS)

    • Thanks Helen. That’s very kind of them….they might be a little biased but I’m glad they enjoyed it. And thanks for letting me know. Now I’ve just hope they enjoy the book. That’s the really important part. 😀x

    I might fall asleep tonight but still will be thinking of you! I’m looking forward to listening to all the other early evening shows later on. Xx

    • Thank you Anonymous. Today’s was a bad time for Ausyrali but the next two should be better. But the interviews are always available for almost 24 hours through the radio station websites. Cheers, Arthur x
