…Fair’s fair… author double act… twice the value for half yer money!

…for Authors, NUTHIN beats being in front of people who buy yer books and ask for yer signature… last weekend, my fellow-pensman pal from the Bahrain Writers Circle, Glen R. Stansfield, he of ‘The Hat’…and this ol’ Scots Jurassic scribbler, he of ‘The Kilt’, spent a smashing day as joint-stallholders at the prestigious American Womens’ Association Arts and Crafts Fair in the Radisson Blu Hotel… our self-crafted produce?… our novels of course!… Master Glen‘s two terrific books, FISHING FOR  STONES, and HARRY, shared tabletop space with my own first two wee babies, THE VIOLIN MAN’S LEGACY, and VENGEANCE WEARS BLACK… from start to finish, the foot traffic in the place was excellent… there we were, in a prime table position space, surrounded by loads of other splendid offerings… black and white still photography, biscuits, children’s toys, scented candles, perfumery, paintings, jewellery, assorted artistic and gemstone creations, cakes… what a tremendous vein of talent exists everywhere… last year, we were told, over 1,000 good folks came through the door, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that total was surpassed last Saturday… our dubble-trubble duo ‘straight from the asylum’ appearance either frightened or surprised people so much they piled in and bought our books, in about equally satisfying numbers…


…the brave lassie in the photograph above, Bridget Bradshaw, prob’ly after consultation with her lawyers, has permitted its publication here below, admirably exemplifying the ‘rose between two thorns’ syndrome… thanks for the support in buying our books, m’Lady, Bridget… and our gratitude to all the other marvellous people who stopped by the stall, either just to chat about books and/or also to purchase our wares, or just to snap a few ‘selfies’… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

    I hope it went well for you, Seumas. I was at the AWA of Aberdeen Craft Fair a couple of weeks ago and it’s a mega one in Aberdeen!
