Book launch - Haunted Southampton

Haunted Southampton, my latest book, has been in the shops a short time and so it was time to give it an official launch party.  A small but perfectly formed group descended on The Station pub in Bitterne, featured in the book, for the launch.

Ghost stories were told, a toast drunk and books were signed.  In all, it was a fun event and the book is well and truly launched on its way!

My thanks to Chris and his staff at The Station and all who attended.

Haunted Southampton - a Number 1 Best Seller!

I am pleased to announce that since my latest book, Haunted Southampton, entered the Waterstones Above Bar best seller chart at number eleven, it has steadily climbed.  Last week it was at number six and now it is number one!  I am chuffed to bits and very grateful to Waterstones and all those who have bought the book to send it flying up the chart. And yes, it is outselling John Grisham's latest novel!
