Many thanks to the Clan Macpherson Association for its loyal support of Pictures at an Exhibition. There was a wonderful turn-out of Macphersons at my book launch last year at Waterstone's Leadenhall Market, and the annual magazine, Creag Dubh, contains a photo of me signing copies as well as a review.

I met up with Carly Butler today, a Canadian in London researching her grandmother's war-time story through the letters she sent during that time and planning a book about the experience. I read about her adventure in the paper and couldn't believe someone was following just the kind of war-time/letter journey for real that I imagined when I wrote Pictures at an Exhibition! What a brilliant adventure she is having. Here is a picture of us at the National Gallery in the shop where I was also pleased to discover that the copy of Pictures at an Exhibition that Carly bought was my third sale of the day.

Please take a look at my article in this month's issue of Best of British magazine (readership 100,000 a month) - all about the National Gallery during the Second World War. I really hope you like it! You can buy Best of British at WHSmith or online.

Very excited to collect a mystery package from the Post Office yesterday and open it to reveal three copies of the audiobook of Pictures at an Exhibition. I didn't even know there was going to be an audiobook! Complete and unabridged and available from Isis Publishing...https://www.isis-publishing.co.uk/osb/itemdetails.cfm/ID/7125

Lovely time last night appearing at a book club in St Alban's by skype. I now feel technically ept on two fronts - first, the use of QR codes in Pictures at an Exhibition, which is unique in fiction, and then speaking to a book club remotely. It opens up the whole world! Thank you to all the members for asking such good questions and being so positive about my book (and so kind about me dialling in late!).
