On Saturday the 13 May 2017, I took a trip to Waterstones in Oban to do a little signing. It was a fairly wet day, but that didn't seem to put off people in Oban from being out and about.
The store - ably run by manager Ewan (who, disclaimer, worked beside me many years ago in another bookstore) - is a lovely space inside an old building, just a short jog from the train station, and overlooks the main harbour. It also has a very well stocked and looked after crime section.
The signing was lovely - Oban customers are fantastic, and one man even drove over 100 miles just to get his backlist signed! And there were chocolate biscuits. Note to other bookstores: chocolate biscuits make authors very happy indeed.
Anyway, below are some pictures from the event. Some taken by me and others by Waterstones Oban. If you're in the area, there are some signed copies of Ed's Dead and And When I Die left in stock, but you should go in anyway and support a brilliant wee bookstore.
