This was the one I have dreamed about since I was a wee girl.
I signed, dated and “First-Lined” 18 hardback copies of CUCKOO for Alan White Fine Books who specialises in signed first editions. As he’s based in Brighton, Alan brought the books round to my house, so I have been broken into signing quite gently – at my kitchen table.
I always use a fountain pen, and I was surprised when Alan said that I was only the second author he’d seen using one. Others are probably more seasoned and practical, but I did have a sheet of blotting paper to avoid smudges. Anyway, it was really enjoyable, although a little stressful – it would be awful to mess up a copy with a stray word or a crossing-out.
