The Creakers Book Signing | Tom Fletcher

me and tom

When I saw that Tom Fletcher was going to be doing a signing for his new book The Creakers and that he was coming to Leeds again, I breathed a massive sigh of relief on many levels. After the disaster at W.H.Smiths last year, I was overjoyed to see that the event would be taking place at Waterstones.  I’ve been pushing myself to go to more events on my own because I’m sick of missing out on things because I have no one to go with. So I bought a solo ticket and when the day rolled around, took an adventure out in the big city on my own.

I will continue to sing the praises of Waterstones Leeds when it comes to their event organisation. This was the third book signing I’ve attended there and honestly, every single one of them has been so painless. The signing was due to start at 4pm but an hour before that the staff were already exchanging tickets for wristbands and allowing people up to the top floor – which they’d blocked off for the signing – to wait. I was given my copy of The Creakers which I essentially preordered when I bought my ticket, and I was given a handful of sweets to munch on while I waited.

Everything was so painless and smooth that it didn’t even feel like I waited the total of an hour and 45 minutes to meet Tom. He was lovely as usual and I asked him if he was excited for Christmas (to which he said “a lot” – He’s a very big fan of the season) and told him about how my cousin’s little girl is really enjoying his book.

And just like that it was over. It was fleeting and wonderful and now I finally have a copy of the book. So I better buckle down and start reading!
