Before thanking people overseas I would like to thank the team at Megalong Books in Leura for their support and guidance especially when the book was first published. To Tom, Jodie, & all the Megalong team - you have helped me become one of your best sellers so a huge thank you. Jodie and the team at Megalong Books in Leura. It is great to be able to go in their for a chat and know I always have their support.
To Gleebooks at Blackheath - thank you for stocking the book. I appreciate your support.
There are many people I would like to thank for all their support during my trip to the U.K. Firstly the team at Austin Macauley for pulling out all the stops to ensure copies of my book arrived on time for book signings - thank you. We had a scary day prior to one signing session but you organised a special courier from London - phew! A big thank you to Colm (my marketing co-ordinator) for his ongoing support and assistance. You are always one step ahead and nothing is ever too much trouble.
Clare, the manager of the Dartmouth Bookshop (Dartmouth Bookseller). You believed in the book and agreed to stock it - thank you.
Jane and Louise at The Harbour Bookshop in Kingsbridge. Coming home and seeing my book on the shelves was awesome. You were both brilliant in chasing stock and giving me the encouragement I needed - thank you.
A great big thank you to Sheree, Deb and the amazing team at Ullacombe Farm. You welcomed me with open arms and made all the book signings a gigantic success. I loved every minute of it and the food provided was exceptional. It was fantastic coming back to such a beautiful place where I spent my youth. I think we all agree how picturesque and magical Dartmoor is. 'Breath taking'.
The Community Bookshop in Dartmouth - to Val, Jan and Andrea. It was lovely chatting about Christopher Robin and reminiscing about my childhood memories of such a great man,
I had the pleasure of stopping at Pixieland near Dartmeet on Dartmoor where I met Glynis who agreed to stock the book. It is lovely to have this local support and I am very grateful.
Thank you Megan at Ashby's in East Charleton for stocking the book. You even provide me with updates, which is fantastic.
Thank you to Megan who owns and runs Ashby’s retail outlet. Ashby’s is a number one seller of both novels. The new store located just outside Salcombe is amazing. You can sit outside on the terrace and enjoy excellent cuisine with a breathtaking view of Kingsbridge.
Jane and Louise at The Harbour Bookshop in Kingsbridge have been as lovely as ever in supporting both books. Their enthusiasm is outstanding.
To Jane, Sam and the team at the Kingsbridge & Salcombe Gazette - thank you for always writing such nice things.
Grant at the Dartmoor Magazine - the perfect place to advertise. Also the support from so many other newspapers, book shops and online book purchasing. This would never be possible without your help.
