I’ve been so lucky getting press for my book, having been featured in The Daily Telegraph, InStyle (OK, so I engineered that one myself), Red Magazine, Grazia, Stylist and Look to name but a few. But I have to say that this weekend marks the most exciting press to date: back on my home territory of the Isle of Wight.
There’s something particularly special about being recognised in the area you grew up in (and it was a fabulous place to grow up, I might add) so I was thrilled to appear in The Isle of Wight County Press this week in a lovely feature by John Hannam, who is somewhat of a local legend. Not only that, but the feature is also about one of my best friends in the world – Daisy Coulam (if you’ve read my book, she’s the bride I was bridesmaid to when I wore flats) – who I went to school with and have known since I was three. She’s also married to Mr Brogue’s best friend from school in Tipton in the West Midlands. I know, good story, right?! If you’ve caught any of Grantchester, ITV’s brilliant new Monday night series, she wrote it. The whole thing! I’m so proud of her!
We’re also appearing on John’s radio show John Hannam Meets on Isle of Wight Radio tomorrow (Sunday 19th). If you’re interested, you can listen at iwradio.co.uk at 2pm and again at 10pm (I’m not suggesting you listen to it twice! We’ll reserve that honour for my mum). John is a bit of a cool dude too – check out the shoes he wore when we met for the interview!!
