First Book Sighting

In the newly swanky and refurbished Talbot Hotel in Wexford, tired after the training – you’re giving a lot of yourself, but you forget you’re also on your feet all day so your legs are sore.

But walked up the Main Street and into a bookshop, looking for my book. Nothing in the Just Published area, but there beside the travel writing section was a pile of Accidental Pilgrims on the floor, waiting to go into the Ms next to Tim Moore.

I’d unsurprisingly thought that the first time I saw my book in a shop would be in a familiar shop in Dublin, and so it blindsided me that it happened here in Wexford (even if I was looking for it). I should go back tomorrow to see if any have been sold.
