Hills & Parkes the deli in Honor Oak Park hosted us a reading in December, which was a very quiet affair, but they made us fantastic carrot cake to go with Paula Read‘s Honor Oak Park story, Carrot Cake. We like to feed our audience’s imagination through as many senses as possible!

We followed this up with a signing session at the London Transport Museum shop, where they were very enthusiastic and we discovered that Wendy Gill has a talent for selling that the rest of us can’t emulate.  We were getting a certain amount of recognition for the book because of the cover –  which is by Gail Brodholt – one of her pictures was on the wall, and lots of her cards around the place too.Our signing table was right by

Anyway we signed all the stock so if you are looking for a signed copy ofStations or London Lies, London Transport Museum
