But now apparently the Stonewylde Series is being classified as General Fiction, to go into the Adult section! I hope that the branches stocking the books will move them – or better still, leave some in the Teenage section and order more for the Adult section. I’d be really grateful if all my wonderful readers who are so proactive in their support for the books could visit their local Waterstone’s and recommend that the books be re-categorised. Don’t move them yourself of course! This annoys staff no end, and means if anyone asks them for the books, they can’t find them. But a friendly chat may bring good results, as I’ve always found the majority of staff to be very helpful and keen to increase their business. Placing the books where adult browsers will come across them will increase their sales, so it makes sense. You’ll be doing everyone a favour. And those of you waiting with bated breath for the fourth book know that it can’t happen until the first three books are widely available and selling well. (Does that sound like a bribe?)
