Where Did You Get Your Book(s)

Postby mrb » Tue Jun 19, 2007 8:14 am

I'm lucky. I live with Kit, so no problems getting hold of the Stonewylde books ... or indeed the next one, Solstice at Stonewylde, due out end of October 2007 :lol: . (It's brilliant by the way!)

Where did you get your copies from? Waterstones, Borders, an independent books store, a signed copy from the Stonewylde website? Let us know ... even if you stole it from a friend! :(

I bought both books direct from Kit via the website. Hopefully the personally signed 'first editions' will be valuable one day :-)

Bought both books from the Green Man bookstall at the Gathering of the Clans in the Purbecks this summer. Glad I bought them both at the same time, because once I started it was impossible to put them down and read them both within the week. Look forward to Solstice being released at Samhain.

Truly spellbinding!

Like custos, I bought mine direct from the web site. I cheekily asked for signed copies and was stunned to get a personal email from Kit saying it had been done. So, once again, many thanks, Kit :)

Gathering of the Clans

Postby kit » Fri Aug 17, 2007 11:46 pm

Hi Seawitch! Really sorry I missed you at the Gathering of the Clans. I was meant to be doing a book signing there, although I hadn't publicised this as it was all arranged at the last minute. I was particularly looking forward to meeting Prof Ronald Hutton, who's written fantastic reviews of the Stonewylde Series (see link on my homepage on the Stonewylde website) and whom I've been corresponding with for some time. By the way, his reviews also appeared in the Lammas edition of Pagan Dawn.

But ... the night before the Gathering, the rains started and that was the beginning of the flooding. Reading and surrounding areas were badly affected and there were severe weather warnings about not travelling unless vital. So on the Saturday morning of the Gathering, I wimped out and didn't go! Which was a great pity and I wish now that I had. And then I've had met you, Seawitch! Thanks so much for the lovely reviews on Amazon by the way. Don't you think that Jerry who owns the Green Man Bookstall looks like Alan Rickman? His wife, Diane, says that Alan should play the part of Magus when the Stonewylde films are made - with Jerry as his understudy. Wow - what a thought!!! I think Alan Rickman is gorgeous and my favourite role of his is as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Any man in a black frilly shirt and black boots does it for me!! As you may have guessed from reading Stonewylde. :wink:

I had both books (at the same time~I am impatient!) from the web site and signed :D.
I must admit to becoming very overcome when I saw Kit had signed them with my user name~this is the name I use on my blog and also its the person I 'see' myself as, if that makes sense?

Alan Rickman would make a delicious Magus, but not sure about him with blond hair...

Have you seen the adverts on TV for Barclaycard,with the two men on holiday - one is a numpty and the other one is blond and suave, but with a wicked edge - I think he would be a good Magus.

If only a film were to be made! Kit?

Ok, just a thought, and in no way do I want to compare Stonewylde with HP but Jason Isaacs? Like I say, just idle supposition and anyway, you started it :lol:

From Kit herself at the Beltane Bash (first two books) and the Halloween Festival (third book). All three are signed by Kit. :D Lucky me. :wink:

I too got mine from the website all nicely signed - thankyou so much Kit :o

I received them today December 14th 2007 but can't start them yet as I am on the last book of another trilogy :cry:

But I can't wait so will read this other book as quickly as possible. Then when I have had a chance to read them - I will give my version of a book review :oops:

I haven't got the first two yet, I borrowed them from my mum's friend but I have the third, signed by Kit from the Littlemoor Hardware Shop. I'll be getting the first two after Christmas from Play.com or Amazon I assume.

First met Kit by accident at The Henge Shop in Avebury one sunny Sunday. I was unable to buy the books then as I had already bought some others but I was intrigued enough after our chat to contact Kit by email and then order the books from Amazon. I had wished I could have them signed and Kit very very kindly agreed to do so. In fact, as I waited for Solstice to come out, I got all three of mine signed and also some copies of Magus which I had bought for family and friends for Yule.
She is such a warm, giving person (you are a lucky man Mr B). I am now impatiently awaiting the next books........ sigh.

P.S. my sister was about to ask me if she could borrow my Magus, that she was quite over come to unwrap her very own signed copy today!

Thank you again Kit.

:D
Love and Light
