Everyone knows we authors have to do our bit on the promotion front these days. We do interviews, book signings, blog tours… the list goes on. We tell readers about our books, what inspired our stories, why they’re such a great read.
Last week, however, I decided to turn the tables a little and give my readers the opportunity to say hello. Readers were invited to post pictures of themselves, reading their copy of Little White Lies and Butterflies and I’m pleased to say they certainly got into the swing of things.
Here’s one reader at a Harrogate 1920s Prohibition Ball of all places.
Another attending a US talent competition.
And another 38,000 feet up in the air!
To say I’ve never ran an event like this before, I’m pleased to say the response was great, with people taking part worldwide.
I’m talking the US, the UK, mainland Europe, South Africa, Australia, the Middle East even. And that includes a war zone…
A dining table in Queensland…
One of the most romantic train stations in Britian…
And the 124th Floor of what I believe is the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
It’s both strange and exciting to think that even though I, myself, might never visit some of these places, a little part of me already has.
Of course, I wouldn’t feel this way if it wasn’t for all you readers, so to each and every one of you I say a great big ‘thank you’. And for anyone who wants to check out the many other photos, you can view all the fun and games here.
Thanks again, everyone.
Until next time… x
