Thursday evening found me in Borders Book shop at the Team Valley shopping park at Gateshead in the north-east. I was in the company of Sheila Quigley (Seahills mysteries) and Lee Weeks (The Trafficked), having met them both in Durham earlier.
I wasn't expecting to sell any books because - well, quite frankly, I didn't have any to sell yet - however it was a great night still. OK, so the crowds didn't turn up in force, but those that did come were interested in what we had to say and asked enough questions to fill an hour and a half. Special hello to Tony and Tula, writers in their own right, who I really enjoyed meeting.
Thanks also to the team at Borders for making me welcome (and for the coffee that hit just the right spot).
