It was a wonderfully atmospheric afternoon, with rumbling thunder and occasional flashes of lightning around us though, thankfully, not overhead. One downpour in the middle of our walk did not cause us to run for shelter. Instead, we raised our brollies, donned our waterproof gear and carried on.
Laid to Rest has been the most eagerly anticipated new walk this year, and there are already plans to create a second Laid to Rest for next year, with a number of new stories. Though we will repeat this year's walk, perhaps with adaptations.
The first printing of St Albans' Own East End is now almost exhausted, and the decision has been made to order a reprint. New copies should be available in about four weeks. It is always good to reach this point, since it confirms that the first print run was not over-optimistic, and an author usually enjoys the prospect of a book continuing to be in demand!
