I’ve just had a call from the Waterstone’s store in Aberdeen where my reading was due to take place on Saturday.
Very unfortunately, they’ve had to cancel the event – due to stock problems at their warehouse they don’t have enough copies of the book in, and don’t want to do an event to promote a book of which they only have five copies.
That’s a sign, at least, of their faith in me to attract more than five people.
It’s a real shame for it to be cancelled at such short notice, and perhaps we can arrange an alternative date. I am sorry, as are the store, to anyone who’d been planning to come along.
Nicole and I had already made arrangements to go through and make a weekend of it, so the silver lining is that with no book stuff to worry about we can have a nice, quiet, relaxing wee holiday in the Granite City instead.
