What a fantastic feeling, something I have dreamt of since childhood.
All those years of writing and worrying whether my book would even be published let alone for sale in Waterstone’s.
It has been a long journey and incredibly hard work, but I’m so glad that I kept going and kept the faith.
All I need now is for lots of people to go in and buy it!
It’s given me a real boost in my marathon effort to read and review each on Conan Doyle’s 56 short stories in 56 days. Today’s (The Adventure of the Priory School, which I’ll post when I get home from work) marks, by my reckoning, the halfway point in the challenge.
It’s not always been easy – there were a couple of days last week where I had to sit in the loo on the train as that was the only place where I could get my laptop out.
But seeing it in Waterstone’s has really given me a shot in the arm and I look forward to the next 28 stories.
