Chuffed! Going to be book signing at the NEC - but not only me...

Graham Field (In Search of Greener Grass)
Bernard Smith and Cathy Birchall (Touching the World)
And Nathan Millward (The Long Ride Home)
Will all be on the Traveldri-Plus stand in Hall 3. Me too. And I'm chuffed to be invited back again.

I think Graham will be there from the first Monday onwards, Bernard and Cathy will be there over the weekends and Nathan, well he's not confirmed which days yet but I'll let you know if I hear anything. I'll be there every day - I like the show y'see.

Thought it was rubbish 3 years ago but the last 2 have been really good. Almost as if light bulbs of logic and common sense had pinged alight in the organisers heads. Let's hope this is a third year running!

Fingers crossed there's no snow. I'll be camping

I have read Grahams and Nathans books and both are excellent. I'm working my way through yours at the moment and they get a big thumbs up

cheers Spud

Hi Spud,
I couldn't agree more with your comments on Graham and Nathan's books. Top class as far as I'm concerned and I hope being at the NEC gives them both the boost they deserve.

I know that Graham is happy today. SE Biker magazine have just said 'Graham Field’s word pictures are excellent and with them he sends you from disasters that hurt, to pretty girls, to tales of the unexpected and to being lost as he crosses the dusty plains of Kazakhstan and Mongolia. It’s kind-hearted, funny, genuine and delightfully honest window into the people and cultures along the route to Ulan Bator.'

As for my books... Fantastic! I'm delighted they are ok

Hi Sam

How could I get myself on the signing list? Wait a year I guess?

Cheers

Hi Will, good to hear from you. The best thing to do is to email Les Madge the owner of Traveldri-Plus.

I'm pretty sure he won't have space for you at the NEC but those who don't ask... : ) and anyway, you could have a chat with him about future shows. He's a good bloke and appreciates a good travel book! I'll drop him a line to say you've been in touch.

I hope all's going really well.
Cheers,
Sam

Hi All, well it's sorted. I'm advised by Traveldri-Plus that authory types will be on the stand at Motorcycle Live 2012 as follows:

Me - every day and all the time except loo breaks! : )
Graham Field - right through, every day from Monday the 26th
Nathan Millward - both weekends and a couple of days during the week, dunno what those will be though.
Bernard and Cathy - both weekends.

Looking forward to seeing you there. It'll be a buzz

You'll find us all in Hall 3.
