Book Promotion in Springtime

Book promotion in Dingle can be more complex than you might expect.

We put a kitchen chair, some posters, a couple of copies of the books and a pile of promotional postcards in the back of the car, added a twist of oat straw and a spade from the shed and drove them into town.
