Signing Books at The Book Barge



TOMORROW: Saturday 29th June, I'm going to be hanging out and signing books at The Book Barge in Lichfield. Yes, that's right: it's a bookshop on a boat! I'll be there 2pm-4pm with Sarah, who owns the Book Barge (and whose book 'The Bookshop That Floated Away' is out later this year). Come and say hello! It's a beautiful shop and you can find the boat at Barton Marina, Barton under Needwood, Staffordshire, DE13 8DZ.

a letter: Dear Children In My Bookshop



Little girl: I love books. I’ve written a book.
Me: Have you? What’s it about?
Little girl: I don’t know. It’s in my head. I haven’t read it yet.

Today I'm over at the lovely Caroline Smailes's blog, and I've written a letter to the lovely children in my bookshop. You can read it over here.

50 'Weird Things....' on Postcards - GIVEAWAY


To celebrate reaching 5000 followers over on the 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops' Facebook page, I'm giving away 50 handwritten postcards. They can have a NEW 'Weird Thing...' written on them, or a couple of lines from one of my poems, whichever you'd prefer.

I'll post to anywhere in the world. It's a first come first served basis. Email me at jenvcampbell@gmail.com with your name, address, and whether you'd prefer a poem or a Weird Thing... and I'll send a postcard to you.

I'll edit this post when the postcards have run out. If you're reading this in a subscription email, click here to see the original blog post and make sure the giveaway hasn't closed.

GIVEAWAY CLOSED: That's all 50 postcards claimed, folks. Thanks very much to those who got in touch, and apologies to those who are just seeing this message now. I do a postcard giveaway about once every six months, though, so there will be other opportunities.

Also, there's a giveaway for two copies of the North American version, 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores' over on Goodreads.
