A Memorable Book Signing at St Mary’s Church, Whaplode

Christine and I met up with some friends recently to celebrate the yearly Snowdrop Walk which takes place in St Mary’s Church, Whaplode in Lincolnshire. The snowdrops as per recent years were glorious.   Whaplode Church, however, also served as the picturesque setting for my first-ever impromptu book signing event and a celebration of the launch of my debut children’s book, “The Order of the Poop.”

Whaplode Church is a wonderful historic church and is a place we frequently visit to meet up with friends and partake of coffee and, of course, cake which adds to the conviviality of the occasion. I have to say that I was taken aback by the support as my friends asked if I would sign their copies of “The Order of the Poop”.

I had to take a moment to reflect on the journey that had led me to this significant milestone in my writing career. Surrounded by the timeless beauty of St Mary’s Church, I felt a profound sense of gratitude for the opportunity to share my passion for storytelling with my friends.

During the event, one of my dear friends actually purchased a copy of “The Order of the Poop” from Amazon. Her spontaneous gesture touched me deeply, reaffirming the bond of friendship we enjoy.

As the day drew to a close, I reflected on the success of my first book signing at St Mary’s Church, Whaplode. It was a day filled with laughter, friendship, and heartfelt moments that I will cherish for years to come. With a heart full of joy, I’m looking forward to many more opportunities to share my stories of Cyril the Crow’s adventures with the world and to continue spreading the magic of storytelling far and wide.
