Thanks a lot Terry, you’re sending me broke. With 4 kids in the house I have to buy 4 copies of every one of your books. Fortunately the rampant interest does not extend to other authors. Just had to buy 1 copy of the boy wizard books. They wander around reading your books all the time, so much so the books are starting to wear out so I’ll probably have to buy new ones very shortly. But the main thing is that they have developed a love of reading so thanks for giving them this interest.

Welcome to the site ,TimberwolfC14! :D

If it's any consolation, at least your buying habits are helping to keep Terry off the streets and writing in comfort. :wink:

Welcome Timberwolf.

Nice to see another parent who buys multiple copies. Mine does. 1 for me, 1 for my sister, 1 for my daughter and then she waits and reads the 1st that becomes available after we've finished.

And yes, Bouncy, for us, only a 1st ed hardback will do! :P

PS - I loves my mum, I does :)

If they want first editions they love books as they are. They love the feel etc. Selkie wouldn't lower herself to the slums of a Kindle :roll:
