An Air of Excitement!

There is an air of excitement hanging around the shop at the moment.  We have just had confirmation from the author Douglas Bond that he is planning a visit! Many of our customers will know books by Douglas Bond - we are often recommending his historical fiction for children, we also highly rate his historical novels for adults.  But he is not just a fiction writer - he writes solid biographies too, plus a few books on theology and Christian living. He also has a particular interest in hymnology. Take a look at this list of his titles that we stock, and have a read of our reviews...

If you would like to meet Douglas Bond please come along on Wednesday 6th July, he is hoping to be here between 3pm and 5pm and will be bringing his latest title War in the Wasteland which is a historical fiction about C S Lewis and World War 1. 

Even more exciting for the budding writers amongst us is that Douglas will be running a Writing Workshop from 4pm.  If you are interested, please get in touch. Because space is limited it is essential that you book for this session.

If you are too far away to meet Douglas Bond but would like to have a book signed, please let us know which title you would like and we will arrange for him to sign it. We can then despatch it to you after the event.

Keep an eye on our facebook page, or twitter feed for more details.

We're in Scotland and Mich as we'd live to meet Mr Bond in person, it will be impossible for us...this time at least! I wonder of you could ask him to sigh a copy: "To Calum....". We already have another signed book, sent to us when Calum's book report was published on Mr Bond's blog! I'll find out how to pay for book and P&P online, but wanted to get that request in quickly!
Many thanks, Anne
