Book Signings at Pickled Pepper and Waterstones Gower Street

 


I've been thrilled to pop in to a couple of bookshops over the past few days to sign copies of THE ARROW OF APOLLO. 


Pickled Pepper in Crouch End is a lovely independent bookshop, with a knowledgeable and friendly bookseller in charge. You can order The Arrow of Apollo from them via email. Their site is here: https://www.pickledpepperbooks.co.uk/

And it was great to see Waterstones Gower Street again - I had forgotten how large and extensive their children's department is. The picture above was taken there - a whopping great pile of copies to sign. Hooray!

Classical Association Round Up


Philip Hooker of the Classical Association rounded up all the books with classical themes - and I was so pleased to see The Arrow of Apollo in the list. I'm delighted that the Classical community is finding the book: "The most imaginative work is probably Philip Womack’s The Arrow of Apollo, a fresh interpretation of Greek Myth for young adults, set in Achaea and Mycenae 15 years after the Trojan War."
