Got it!!!


My author's copies of Watery Ways have finally arrived! I think they look, feel and smell great, so it's a real thrill to have them. Now for the work. I will need to start spreading myself around - so to speak - well, at least my book!

First call will be to the Maritime Museum bookshop to ask them if they would like to do a little book launch for me on their premises. After that, I will be sending copies to the local TV station, the local paper and the local radio stations. My market is limited here, so wish me luck!

  17. How about the mags in UK eg Towpath Telegraph; Canal Boat; Waterways World. They all review books. Also RBOA (Residential Boat Owners Assoc) reviews books in its members' mag. IWA (Inland Waterways Assoc) may also be worth a try.
