A reminder, as we get nearer Christmas, of the signed books arrangement I have with  Waterstone’s in Hampstead High Street, not far from where I live … anyone who wants a signed copy of my diaries can order them via them, and I will pop up to the shop every now and then and sign them with personal dedications to those who ask for them.

They charge the full cover price, but throw in UK postage for free. So that means £25 for hardback versions of The Blair Years, extracts of the diaries published in 2007, and the same price for Prelude to Power (94-97),  Power and the People (97-99), and the latest one published earlier this month, Power and Responsibility (99-2001). Paperbacks of The Blair Years, Prelude to Power and Power and the People, will cost £12.99, £9.99 and £9.99 respectively. (If you ask nicely, they’ll do the same with my novels).

All you have to do is email manager@hampstead.waterstones.com stipulating what books you would like, what if any dedication you would like, and how you would like to pay. They won’t take cheques or postal orders for this service, but will take payment by credit card over the phone, or cash/credit card in person at 68-69 Hampstead High Street London NW3 1QP.

Voila. Happy Christmas … and talking of which, my first ebook, on the subject of happiness (and depression), is out in mid-January. It’s called The Happy Depressive.
