We then made our way to Haslemere Hall where I was to introduce a screening of Hammer's Hound of the Baskervilles. At this point I became truly scared as I don't make a habit of public speaking.
We checked my slide show, ran through a few points and then, just for the exercise, we went back to the museum for a buffet lunch. It was there that I met those who had already given their talks. These lucky individuals were Andrew Lycett and Andrew Lane.
|Yes I'm terrified|
At 2pm I made my way onto the stage following a lovely introduction from Roger Johnson.
Following a talk of about 20 minutes I was relieved to leave the stage for the film screening. There was laughter in all the wrong places (which was quite funny). At its conclusion we drew a raffle. The prizes were a number of books from my publisher MX Publishing. These included my book An Entirely New Country which you can order via this page.
