My talk at the Helensvale Library went down extremely well yesterday. It was gratifying to hear from people who had already read The Election and enjoyed it and to know that so many more people now want to read it. I managed to sell a copy there and then and there were loads of enquiries so more sales will come out of it. People were also interested to know when I'm doing another talk!

Last night I attended the Christmas party of the local Chamber of Commerce and a few of the members of a local book club were there. They had all read The Election and loved it and I had previously given a talk at one of their lunches. But what was very pleasing was that a few of them had read the manuscript of my next novel to be published Calvus and they loved it. One person said she thought it was even better than The Election. I hope their thoughts on it are mirrored by commissioning editors or literary agents I'm submitting to at present.

The rain is wreaking havoc here at present and it looks as though I won't be able to join a colleague at the beach market tomorrow. A sunny day in the run up to Christmas would have been a good time to sell a few copies of The Election. However there will be another opportunity later in the month.
