Just wanted to share my excitement, following my first piece of feedback on Aquasapien. I sold a couple of copies pre the launch on the 20th May (in Canterbury Library - Yes another blatant plug - no shame here) and I've had a text telling me officially the novel "was brilliant." It's a perfect birthday present. I want to shout it out in case you missed it. No, I didn't pay someone to read it. No, I didn't even give them a copy free. They paid the full price and thought it was brilliant. Some days don't get any better than this.
To add to my happiness, I received an email from the Waterstones buyer dept actually requesting a copy of Aquasapien for them to decide whether they want to stock it. Last time, with WOTW, I sent them a copy without any request and they turned me down. This time they asked me! I know people round the country have been ordering the book, but so far my distributors have not sent any copies out because they haven't been asked for them. I'm not sure what's going on that end.
Hang in there all you folk that have ordered one. Your support is the only way I can break into a tight old boys/girls network and that one line of text has made my writing efforts seem worthwhile - thank you reader.
