I’ve had a fantastic weekend, with a Wedding on Saturday and a Wedding Fayre on Sunday. I actually had to leave a photograph of myself on the sideboard so that Lesley would remember what I looked like ..
Saturday was fab, with the Wedding of Jane and Christian in Winsford and a reception at the delicious Willington Hall near Chester. I love this intimate little moment as the newly-weds emerged from the church. Many congrats, you two ..
Sunday was spent at Hollin Hall, where I had a stand at their Wedding Fayre. I spoke to lots of lovely new brides and have my fingers crossed I’ll be shooting for at least a couple of them very soon ..
There’s now a break in my bookings until next month, so it’s just as well I got a good Wedding ‘fix’ when I could ..

However, it reminded me I’ve not said anything about my new book for a while. New book, Martin? Oh yes, didn’t you know I’d written a book? It’s called ‘The Boy who missed Next Year’ and is available from all good retailers for ..
Actually, it’s not available from any shops. I mean, it would be if it had been taken up by a publisher but, for some bizarre reason, of the 30 odd I sent it to, not one could see the amazing potential in the story! Still, in true JK styley, I am persevering and have made it available on Amazon Kindle for all you discerning readers to buy ..
Actually, I’ll be testing it out soon when I give a reading at a local kids’ book club.
