The first batch of paperbacks have arrived at last and are on sale in the Store for £9.70, which includes first class postage within the UK.
I came across a wonderful shop today which turned out to be owned by an international company who promote the work of illustrators and authors of children's books and do free events for kids at the weekends. So I popped in to show them a copy I had with me and they liked it very much and advised me to contact their art coordinator to see if she would be interested. They act as literary agents too, so we might try to pitch a few ideas to them as well.
Meanwhile I shall be wearing out a bit of shoe leather in Fulham and Chelsea, where there are several independent bookshops and lots of trendy little gift shops and child-friendly cafes, where I might buy a coffee and leave a book by mistake!
