I’ve just returned from giving two talks in Cornwall where the sun was shining, the sea was blue and the crowds were flocking to St Ives, which was my first port of call on Tuesday morning at 11am. I met some delightful people as always and my heartfelt thanks to them for listening to me talking about how I write and for buying my books. After a quick sandwich lunch sitting in the cemetery overlooking the bay it was about an hour’s drive to St Austell Library where, once again, I met some lovely people, answered questions about my marine mystery crime novels and signed books before setting off homewards.
Next stop was meant to be CrimeFest in Bristol for my panel interview on Friday 15 May, but due to unforeseen circumstances I have had to pull out. I am really disappointed as I was looking forward to speaking at the event and meeting so many crime authors and crime fiction fans. If you are attending and hoping to see me and hear me talk, please accept my apologies. I will be back next year. My books will still be on sale at CrimeFest but I won’t be there to sign them – sorry. For anyone who is disappointed not to meet me and who requires signed copies you can order direct by visiting my official web site at www.rowmark.co.uk
My next book signing and talk is at Ferndown Library, Dorset on Tuesday 2 June at 10.30am. All welcome. firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: 01202 874542 And I promise I will be there.
