Candy Jar Books will have a stall in the centre of Cardiff this next week, giving fans the chance to buy plenty of novels and picture books — and get some of them signed!
And if you get there fast, they’ve got some advance copies of the next two instalments in The Lucy Wilson Mysteries series. They won’t go on general sale for at least another month, so this is your chance to get an early preview of her upcoming adventures. Lucy is, of course, the granddaughter of popular Doctor Who character, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, and her stories have proved a big hit with youngsters and older fans alike.
One of the Lucy Wilson authors, Baz Greenland, will be there tomorrow (Saturday 13th August 2022) to sign books too!
Throughout the week, there will be various authors signing work, including Cherry Cobb (The Lucy Wilson Mysteries: Christmas Crackers; Will’s War) and myself.
I’ll be there on Friday 19th August 2022, from about 11am (depending on traffic!), signing copies of 100 Objects of Doctor Who and chatting about all things Who. Obviously, I’d love to see you there, but if you can’t make it on Friday, you’ll still be able to buy 100 Objects and a shed-load of other books from the stall from 13th to the 20th August.
The stall will be manned by Candy Jar’s Head Honcho (and my boss!), Shaun Russell, and he’ll have a range of titles for all ages, including The Forgotten Son, the first in the Lethbridge-Stewart range; the celebratory collection, The Brigadier: Declassified; The Analysis Bureau, with profits going to the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Appeal; and the brand new title, The Invisible Artist: The Art of Jeff Cummins. Plus, there’ll be a whole host of picture books, perfect ways to get kids reading.
Head to Cardiff city centre to find the Candy Jar shed. And if you can’t make it, you can still order loads of Doctor Who books from the publisher’s site.
