Book No 6 Is Launched!

A couple of weeks ago Little Alf and I were at Berry’s Farm Shop located in West Witton, North Yorkshire where we launched the 6th Little Alf book in the series. It’s a little bit crazy thinking we now have 6 books published and the event was a whirlwind of emotions.

I started writing ‘The Magical Adventure of Little Alf – The Mystery Map’ in January 2018 ready for launching 11th August 2018 and had started advertising the launch a few weeks before, which got an amazing response. We had over 100 people wanting to come and meet us, which was overwhelming to say the least.

On the day of the launch we where both a little bit nervous and Alfie had his rollers in the night before to make sure he looked well groomed for all his fans.

We set of from home in the horse box at 10:30am and arrived just before 11:00am. Luckily it was only a short drive from home so Alfie didn’t have far to go.

Once we got there we sneaked in behind the barns ready until it was time to come out. Just after 11:00am we walked into the court yard and was amazed at how many people had come to see us.

It took me a minute or two to soak everything in until I began a small speech about the next book. Alfie kept whinnying and flicking his head in the air, he loves all the attention and all eyes were on him, so he was in his element.

After we finished our talk everyone lined up to have their picture taken with Alfie which he loved and posed for every picture.

It took a couple of hours and by the end of the queue he was beginning to yawn which everyone thought was funny – it’s hard work being so small!

After that we proceeded to book sign and talk to everyone about the books which was lovely.

It was a sunny day and an amazing atmosphere. I’m already planning the next book launch and meet Alfie day for around Christmas time.

Once Alfie got home later that day just after 2:00pm he was tired and ready for a few hours rest in his field!

The new book has had a great response and reviews so far which is so rewarding to hear as an author.

I’m already starting work on the next book which will be released later this year…
