I intended to buy all three books and ask for them to be signed at the Halloween festival.
I was working there as a photographer and took a picture of Kit with an Owl (I hope she liked it :) )
It got so busy on the Sunday with people wanting their photographs taken that I missed the oportunity :( .
Luckily my boyfriend was able to buy them from Waterstones. They didn't have the third book though so I was going to buy that one online.
I should have bought it before I finished the 2nd one as I am now desperate to find out what happens!

Sales on amazon have really exploded - now I know why!! They're ordering so many each week from my distributor, it's great. I remember you, Daffodil! A pink, long-necked thing? I mean your company, not you!! You took a lovely photo of me holding the barn owl, which we have in our living room. Weren't those owls amazing? They're so beautiful. I would absolutely love to have my own owl. Glad to hear you had a successful weekend. As for ordering books from the website - I can just about keep up with it all now, but I suspect that by the time the fourth book, Shadows at Stonewylde, comes out, the whole thing will be too big for me to cope with. We had an amazing amount of pre-orders for Solstice, and it's certainly grown a lot since last October. I'll have to make special arrangements or something for my forum members to be able to order signed copies, because I suspect that by then, we'll have stopped doing this. It's very exciting times for Stonewylde.

Hi Kit, so kind kind of you to remember me. I'm honoured that you liked your picture so much to have it on display. I'm just sorry I didn't get time that weekend to come and find out about your books properly.
Luckily I kept in touch with the lady from Merry Meet (she was also a trader at the Halloween festival) and she told me how much she had enjoyed your books.
She also warned me not to finish the second book before I ordered the third one - oh how I wish I had listened. I will have to be patient until I can order the third book. I read the first two so much quicker than I could have imagined.
Wishing you well kit

Oh Kit - yes, please. I would love to have an entire set signed, once they are all published. So, please allow the forum members to continued access to signed copies. Please.

Dearest iWitch - rest assured that I shall never forget my early supporters! You've been wonderful with all the reviews you've posted, cards you've handed out, and general support you've given for the Stonewylde cause. It'll be my pleasure to send you an advanced signed copy of the next book - but don't hold your breath. I'm so busy at the moment doing all the marketing stuff that I can't see when I'll ever get the time to redraft and polish the manuscript (and I know what a stickler you are about typos!!!). But one day, I promise ... :D

You know, I could always proofread it for you? :wink: Not that I'm after an advanced copy or anything. :lol:

I got all mine from the website, so they're all signed :D

I can understand that if Stonewylde goes 'mainstream' then Kit won't be able to devote much (or any :( ) time to the forums, but I hope that everyone that posts on here would carry on, as it's so friendly and interesting.

I got my book (the first one) from Waterstones. It was the only one there of the series.
