Best-selling author, Kate Long, visits Southport
best-selling writer, Kate Long, was in Southport’s Esquires Coffee
House on Lord Street, on 28 April 2011. The author was behind the
hit ITV show 'The Bad Mother's Handbook', which was
shown in 2007, as well as writing many other similar books. The
latest is called:- “Mothers and Daughter’s” and Kate
was in the area to sign copies of this book. We joined Kate as she
happily signed books within the coffee shop, and then as she took
some time out to sit and drink a well-earned coffee, with customers,
outside, as they basked in the amazing hot sunshine on Lord Street
on the day. She then headed off to Prichard’s Bookshop in Formby to
complete the tour for the day. The event was held, thanks to
Formby’s Prichard’s Bookshop and Esquires, who put on a fantastic
effort. Prichard’s and ourselves still have a very limited number of
signed books in stock, should you wish to get a signed copy of her
latest novel. To learn more about the author who says:- “If I
hadn’t had the most incredibly boring childhood, I might never have
become an author.” we would recommend you go to
katelong.co.uk. Thanks Kate for
a fantastic day and we look forward to your next instalment!

ERRORS IN LAST WEEK’S EDITION
MANY of you
have contacted us to say the web camera is not working and that we
have information missing from last week’s edition. Thank you for
your emails, we are doing our best to fix the problem. Sadly, one of
our computers in the office has failed due to the heat and as a
result the camera uploads and some of the news reports have been
taken offline as a result, hence the lack of stories in last week’s
edition. We are doing our best to resolve the situation and restore
the missing "Southport Town & Country Fair April 2011"
photographs and report. We hope to have the data received soon, but
are awaiting parts, caught up in the double bank holiday. If anyone
wants to be kept up-to-date, please email our newsroom at:-
email@example.com with the subject,
“lost edition”, and we will let you know when it is fixed.
