If ever I needed an excuse to fly back to England, now I have the perfect one, because A MEMORY OF VIOLETS has been selected as one of twelve titles for the ‘Fresh Talent’ promotion at WHSmith Travel Outlets. This means that the book will be in prime position at WHSmith retail outlets at airports and train stations across the UK. Peter Jocham, Group Key Account Manager, HarperCollins explains this a little better.
‘WHSmith Travel’s ‘Fresh Talent’ promotion champions new and emerging writers. It’s becoming harder and harder to break these authors in today’s market so it’s fantastic that WHSmith’s Travel are showing this level of commitment by running this promotion. They’re really enthusiastic that they can bring this selection of fantastic new authors to readers. A Memory of Violets is featuring in the promotion until April, it’s one of twelve diverse titles featured during this time-frame that should give readers a taste of the very best in new fiction today. The promotion means that the book will be displayed at WHSmith’s Travel stores in airports and train stations in a specially devoted bay.’
How exciting is that?!!
A few jet-setting friends have already seen the display, and I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled when I travel home to England in a few weeks. Let me know if you spot the book on your travels!
