On the radio
Well, this will be a first for me. I am being interviewed on Radio Skye on Sunday 9 January at about 9.30am. The focus of the interview will be my first novel, Needing Napoleon and encouraging others to believe they can get a book into print. I will talk about the range of options now available to writers but also some of the frustrations!
I'm not going to pretend to be an expert. Nor am I suggesting my book is threatening the bestseller lists. But I hope that might resonate with some listeners. I didn't write Needing Napoleon to sell a million copies or get rich. I wrote it for pleasure. And now I want to share it with as many people as I can reach. Simple as that. But not necessarily that easy to achieve.
I might also get to touch upon the places where my book can be bought. I am delighted Waterstones in Inverness are stocking it. There are three shops on Skye: Carmina Gadelica, Tippecanoe and McIntyres Newsagents who are selling signed copies. Obviously, it is available through most online bookshops too.
The supply chain has been pretty creaky over Christmas and New Year but I am hoping things will settle down soon, although Covid continues to have an impact, of course.
Anyway, here's wishing everyone a Happy New Year!
