I've been so excited the last couple of days when I found out that The Highland Lass is now in print! This is a dream come true for this book of my heart and even though e-books are hugely popular now, and I read that way myself at night, I particularly wanted this novel to be available for those who still prefer an old-fashioned book.
I'm also delighted my publisher, Crooked Cat, has used a print company that makes books available in shops and libraries, as well as being available from Amazon UK and Amazon US. That means any library and shop (hopefully) should be able to order it in for customers. Yesterday, I was speaking to a group of lovely people who wanted to hear about my writing life and two of them said they were going to tell their library about me.
Now I have to decide if I should organise a reading or two - I'm so used to online promotion that this is a new area for me! I've already checked and the ISBN number (1910510505) is showing up in the Gardners catalogue. Haven't checked Ingrams yet but it should also be there and both of these supply most of the bookshops.
It seems a happy coincidence that I'm featured on American writer Lois Winston's Anastasia Pollock blog today, where I've written about Scotland as a setting and the areas mentioned in The Highland Lass, along with a few photos. You can find the article here.
Now to come down to earth and get on with the novella I'm supposed to be finishing!
