kevin goes to gardners trade show

On Day 2 of our launch tour for The Legend of Kevin, Philip Reeve and I were the Guest Writer/Illustrators at Gardners Trade Show in Birmingham. Of course, Kevin came along, too:

We gave a brief presentation to hundreds of booksellers:

And signed LOTS of books! Gardners is a big wholesaler who stocks many of the independent bookshops in Britain, and their trade show is one of the ways booksellers find out about new and upcoming books. We recognised quite a few of the booksellers but it was great to talk with lots of ones we'd never met before. A few of them were brand-new to the business, with new shops, and we fervently wished them well.

If you'd like to see more photos of what goes on at a trade show, there's a great photo stream you can browse here on Gardner's Flickr page.
