The Sunday after the launch I headed down to Chelsea to Notions Unlimited for a signing event. I love Chuck’s store. I’m a sucker for any bookstore dedicated to science fiction, fantasy and horror, and Notions Unlimited has an extra cosy atmosphere. Maybe it’s because Chuck is so friendly and welcoming. Maybe it’s the couches and table in the centre, where I spent the evening relaxing and chatting with the readers who came to see me, and one who just happened along.
At the end of the night I signed more books and left wishing I had a Notions Unlimited in my local shopping centre, so I could hang out and go to books signings, as well as be able to pop in whenever I wanted a book. Though I that would just mean my out of control To Read pile would grow even faster.
