Have you read my book Severnside – An Artist’s View Of The Severn? If so I’d like your feedback please….

You know what it’s like, you spend years working on something, let it go wild into the world, and forget to ask for any feedback. Maybe you’re a bit shy about it, I know I am. It is my first book and it’s very auto biographical. Like parting with a drawing or painting, it is a part of me and it feels a bit post-partum. The baby has grown up and left home. Gone. Empty nest syndrome.

Thank you to everyone that bought a copy – I am very surprised (in a good way!) that the edition of 100 signed and numbered copies have nearly all gone. I have only six left and I want to use them wisely and see if I can do a bit of marketing with them.

And that’s where I need your help.

Now I feel a bit more secure about things, in the light that I’ve received some very lovely comments, and some people bought more, indeed many kore, than one copy, I need to stop hiding my light under the bushel and do a bit of shouting about it. So if you know a Hay or Cheltenham Lit Festival manager , do mention it. In the meantime, I wish to write a bit of promotion material and would REALLY appreciate some written feedback.

Either email it to me carolyndevos@gmail.com, put it in my contact form, or comment on this blogpost.

And if you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about it – here’s some information. I plan to print another edition.

thank you!!!
