Yesterday I held a small party to launch Smethurst’s Luck. My friendly local pub, the Orange Tree in Chelmsford, provided the venue, and Mike Collins - ‘Silent Mike’ – the landlord, and his excellent staff, KT, Kathy, Trish, Carrie and Mick ensured that the event was most successful.
The press, however, failed to turn up, and I have the task of persuading the local newspaper to print a story.
I am also now contemplating a blitz on Richmond. Since the byline for Smethurst’s Luck is ‘The Richmond Poisoner’, it ought to be of interest to the numerous bookshops there.
