Setting the book free

Phil: Right – Book 1 is finished. Done. Dusted. We’re just working on the marketing and have sold a few copies.

Our signing session before Christmas saw us leave with a few printed copies. Some of these have been given away as presents but I decided that I was going to do something different with one of mine.

My local station has a “library” in the waiting room on platform 3. In the corner of this marvellously restored Art Deco room there is a small bookcase. On the shelves are books donated by travellers. If you need some reading for your journey, you can pick it up from here for free.

In the collection is a copy of Kate vs The Dirtboffins.

I wonder what will happen to it. Presumably it will be picked up by someone who has never heard of us.

I hope they like it.

  1. Brilliant idea. Let’s get other people to Do it where ever they can – charity shops, hotel libraries. I have a cunning plan.

  3. Well it worked for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. They left 200 copies on the underground. Not sure I want to buy quite that many, but a few more wouldn’t hurt.
