Beth Hanley had her first signing for The Beast of Tapley Woods on Saturday, Oct 13 at a local coffee/ice cream/gift shop called Kingsley Crossing.
She not only had her books for sale, but had made two different scented soy candles and wax melts sets in the fragrances of her main character, Liam Tapley. She also made some leather carved bookmarks and wrist cuffs with book-related or Celtic designs.
For every purchase, the buyers put their name into a box to win the raffle basket which consisted of a large mug, coffee, Irish tea bags, and Scottish shortbread along with a candle and a 2-piece wax tart set. The piece de resistance, however, was the bagpiper hired to entertain and draw attention to the event. He was a huge hit with everyone and added the additional touch of class to the event.
