Anthony Horowitz is Coming to Tonbridge next Wednesday

Anthony Horowitz will be coming to Mr. Books Bookshop for the (okay somewhat belated) Grand Opening next Wednesday February 20th from 3-30pm to around 4-30pm. After a very short cutting of the ribbon type ceremony Anthony will then be signing his latest book, Oblivion, which is the final thrilling episode of his Power of Five series. On sale at the shop there'll also be a selection of his other popular books and graphic novels aimed at both children and adults. Recently I read his Sherlock Holmes book, The House of Silk, and was mightily impressed. The whole idea of Anthony coming to Tonbridge was sparked off when my family bumped into the man himself in a bookshop in Hay on Wye just before his talk at the town's annual literary festival. On and off, I've been badgering his marketing people ever since and that chance meeting was about four years ago. Social networking also played quite a big part as my recent cheeky comment on twitter asking AH to come and do my Grand Opening seems to have been what finally swung it. It seems that persistence and patience really can pay of sometimes! It's all happening next Wednesday at Mr. Books, 142 High Street. I can't wait.... Find out more about the event on Mr. Books website and about his fabulous books on Anthony Horowitz's

So who have your PR people invited to the opening?
Surely they have asked our Kelly.

I hope the wine is better than last time. The many canapes went down well though. Looking forward to it.

Have you hear about the development in Tonbrige that will move even more trade away from the High Street? Yes the Angel centre is comming down and Sainsburys will expand and also put in 5 non food shops plus a cinema multiplex. New community centre to be built on the Bradford Street car park. I wonder how many parking spaces will be lost and how many people will stop comming to the town because they cant park near the sports ground.

Well it's all happening at MR Books; first the news about the book signing with Anthony Horowitz, and now a write up (and photo) in the Courier.

Regretably I won't be able to attend on Wednesday, as some of us have to keep the wheels of industry turning, but I hope it all goes well.

What, no pictures or write ups? You're slipping in the publicity stakes, TB!
