On Saturday 14th March at 1pm I was at The Big Comfy Bookshop to sign and sell copies of ‘Wulfsuna’, along with my trusted Saxon warrior ‘Wulfgar of Mercia’!
The Big Comfy Bookshop is nestled amid a plethora of unique boutiques in FarGo creative village on Far Gosford Street, Coventry. If you have never been it is well worth a visit. There is something for everyone.
The proprietor, Michael, welcomed me warmly into his miniature empire of books, comfy red sofas and tempting cakes (I had the fudge brownie). For true food connoisseurs there is a sumptuous-looking Chocolate & Guinness cake!
After I gave a short reading from ‘Wulfsuna’, one of the lucky clientele won a free signed copy in my draw and then a happy hour or so was spent chatting about history, mingling with those who came and sipping coffee. Wulfgar of Mercia was on hand to demonstrate the battle tactics of a 5th Century Saxon warrior, which proved a hit with some of the younger attendees.
I’d like to express my gratitude to all who came along and congratulations to the competition winner – enjoy reading ‘Wulfsuna’! And if you happen to pop along to Big Comfy Books you just may find a few of the Wolf Sons lurking among the shelves…
