Still, it was a great visit back to the UK, and it didn't rain ALL the time.
Briefly, the 2 book signings went very well and I have organised another 2 for the end of November in Winchester and Bishop's Waltham - where the book is set.
It was great meeting people who have read 'The Crossing' and hearing what they thought of it. Good news is always cheering. It was also interesting hearing other people's slant on the story - imagination is wonderful.
At the moment I have 3 books to review. All 3 are completely different and range from a murder mystery, a thriller and a child's story set in 2 time periods. It is sometimes difficult to be unbiased when you know there are already written reviews on the subject and yet your own is going to be completely different. You can't please them all though.
Summer presses on. The garden is still looking nice despite a lack of rain (and it didn't help when one's spouse turned off the automatic watering system by mistake)! The figs are turning ripe on the trees and it's time to knuckle down once more. The end of 'The Assassins' Village' is just around the corner if only I don't have more interruptions!
