We have been holding a GNS Fan Club Convention at my home in the Shropshire hills every year on the first Sunday in September. This year was the 17th and it was surely the best ever, one which I will remember for many years to come.
Fans came from Poland and the USA as well as from various parts of the UK. The usual splendid buffet was provided by Marina Palmer.
Primarily a social occasion and an opportunity to meet up with my fans, we always have a theme and this year it was the pendulum. This device was given to me many years ago by a white witch who lived locally. It works like any other pendulum on one’s body electrics.
Everybody enjoyed experimenting with it.
We always launch my latest book at these gatherings. This year it was the latest Sabat novel, No.6 “The Return”. Numerous copies were sold on the day to be followed by a string of orders the next day via the Fan Club website. With the Sabat books 1-5 permanently in demand I think that No.6 will also be one of my top sellers.
It was a truly tremendous occasion , renewing my acquaintance with many fans from past years as newcomers on the scene.
All but a couple of items on offer at our annual auction sold.
I cannot recall having signed so many books on a single day before.
My sincere thanks to all who made the effort to attend from afar. I do like to keep in touch with my fans and I look forward to seeing them again in 2020.
