When Harry met Johnny...

Pete Tanton's signing session at Borders Silverlink on Saturday was a great success, with Johnny Lonely outselling every other book on the day - even Harry Potter. The store sold its entire stock of Pete's novel - luckily he had brought a box of spare copies to replenish their shelves. Pete also found time to be photographed for local paper the News Guardian - North Tyneside residents should keep their eyes peeled for that being published. If you missed the signing the Silverlink store still has a handful of signed copies, or you can get a copy signed in person by going along to Borders Team Valley in Gateshead on Saturday 1st September. No doubt Johnny will give Harry another bloody nose. Bloomsbury and JK Rowling are quaking in their boots...

P.S. The Tonto office is a little emptier this week now that Marianne has finished her work placement. Both myself and Stu would like to say thanks very much to Marianne for all of her hard work, which was very much appreciated, and we wish her every success in the future. There's no doubt she'll make an excellent editor - assuming we haven't completely put her off the publishing industry!
