"Guess Who?" Q&A Week 20


Can you please share one memorable moment since becoming an author?
I had to do a book store visit with one other author (famous for writing YA books). My publisher thought it would be a great way for me to introduce myself to her fans, read from my book and hey, maybe even sell a few copies.

When we turned up there were loads of little girls, all about 6 years old. The author had dropped her YA stuff and was here promoting her new series for young girls and was centred around a group of school friends. All light, fun and very pink.

My book opened with the ghost of a murdered six year old boy.

When I started reading my extract, the audience started crying. The few girls who enjoyed it, wanted the book. The parents refused to buy it. They left rather hurriedly. To make it worse a group of teens did come in, but saw me reading to a bunch of six year olds, so promptly turned around and left.

Hints: He writes about the only girl squire in the Knight's Templar.
