Fellow author, Colin Payn and I will be hosting a book signing on Saturday 14 January 2017 in Basildon from 10.00 to 16.00. We’ll be in the Basildon Community Arts Showcase at 46, Southernhay, just outside the Eastgate Centre towards Toys R Us and we‘d love it if you’d drop in and say Hi!

Colin and I both belong to Basildon Writers which we’ve both belonged to for several years. His first book ‘DOT’S LEGACY’ will be available on Saturday at the book signing and if you can’t make it to Basildon, you can buy it from Amazon here. It’s available as a paperback and an ebook.

When Dot Jacks inherited a ‘public’ park she began a career that was to change the lives of the people of Chip Notting, providing unintended entertainment for them, and a social legacy to both haunt and taunt her heir. Rhys gradually discovered his inheritance included decades of hostilities with the local Council, the dog Dot tried to sue, the dossers, the debts, and the wonderful community his Aunt had inspired. The story of the first year of Park ownership by Rhys, and outspoken girlfriend Anne, is strewn with lively characters, all of whom have a part to play in the ups and downs of love, business and the Park Effect that was Dot’s true legacy.

  1. Awww. Would love to but unable to come. Wishing you both a successful day.

    1. Never mind! It’s a long way from you. Let’s get together soon? Did you hear from Belinda at Christmas by the way?

      1. Yes. Had a card after. Strange letter inside. None of the writing relevant to me.

        1. I think I had the same letter. Very sad. It doesn’t sound like things are going well.
