We've had a nice lady, Sally C Greenfield, providing the illustrations. She is a local artist who specialises in dogs and horses, as well as being a Border Terrier breeder, so we are an ideal match. She's certainly caught my personality, which is no mean feat on a small piece of paper, and 'Him Indoors' has used a couple of her drawings for the cover. 'Her Indoors' has done the publication side of things and has done her best, bless her, but listing on Amazon has had her baffled for weeks, although she reckons she's finally cracked it now..... or is that cracked up?
We've had a frankly touching level of support from the BT Posse, family, friends and colleagues, with over eighty copies sold since we went 'live'. Our 'launch' do on Friday evening was great - I don't often go to parties. There were lots of people I knew, a pleasing number of juniors, a posh drinking bowl for my refreshments and someone managed to sneak me some cake when 'Her Indoors' was distracted. My only regret is that I didn't get any Prosecco. Still, I'm not sure the bubbles would have had an agreeable effect on my digestion, which might have caused some problems on the way home. Anyway, if you haven't yet managed to buy a copy of 'The Last Rolo', it's for sale in the following places, just click on the underlined bits to get taken directly there:
- Saffron and Sycamore in Uckfield
- Heals Shop in Five Ashes
- Barnett's of Wadhurst
- The Courtyard, Rotherfield
- The Malthouse, Herstmonceux
