Book Signing - the official photos of The Shadow Fabric launch

There are moments in life when things can overwhelm, like when returning home from school and your parents have something for you behind the sofa. They tell you to go look and there's the Millennium Falcon toy you've wanted for ages. There are few comparisons to the Saturday just gone.

This weekend saw the release of my supernatural horror novel, The Shadow Fabric. The launch was hosted by Mr. Books in Tonbridge, Kentthe town I grew up in. This was the day to finally unravel the Fabric...and I was there signing copies. 

After cradling this project for more than three years, of course it'll be overwhelming.

Sitting there behind my paperback fortress, half of me loved the attention while the other squirmed. I am not used to the all-eyes-on-me thing; I remember being like this at my birthday parties, even with family and friends around me.

Throughout the book signing, not only was I surrounded by those who mean a lot to me, also a number of passers-by and Twitter followers bought a copy. The introvert within shrank back.

The turn-out exceeded my expectations. I thank all you guys who were there. You made the day pretty damn special.

Thanks also goes to Mark, Mr. Books himself.

And Chris, as always, a massive thanks to you.
