“Nicola’s presentation was faultless. The staff at Foyle’s were clearly in love with their visiting author and … I’ve never seen a flurry of publication pleasure so nicely ordered.”
“All the committee thought the evening and I quote ‘was a brilliant success. Nicola was an excellent speaker and gave everyone food for thought”, ‘great enthusiasm all round for the speaker and the topic’,
‘Nicola was a great speaker and I could have listened to her for a lot longer’.”
“I’ve never heard the subject tackled so articulately, honestly and clearly.”
After an Edinburgh International Book Festival talk: “Best talk I’ve heard during the festival – you speak so passionately and clearly. You have a voice that people want to listen to and I never switched off for a moment. Well done for how you dealt with that strange question, too!”
Feedback comments from school events:
“I would like to thank you very much for helping make our first ever Book and Arts Festival a great success. Your talk was great. We have had such great feedback from the children and staff who attended. We have had a lot of parents come into the shop to let us know how much their children enjoyed the session with you. Also our book sales have been great!”
“I was amazed by the reaction of the pupils to your talk last week. Ever since then, I’ve had faces in this library which I have never seen in my life and all your books now have long waiting-lists! I was worried they wouldn’t ask questions - how wrong I was! Thank you and well done. You made a real difference.”
“Please don’t underestimate the impact of visits like yours. The effect is definitely lasting. I wanted you to know that pupils have been asking for your books every day since the talk and I think quite a few parents will be getting Blame My Brain for Christmas! I’ve spoken to librarians at the other schools you visited and they say the same. It was a pleasure to be part of such an event and thank you again for visiting us.”
“You visited *** High School about 18 months ago. Your visit was very well-received, and readership of your books is still high. When examining our library’s loan statistics for S1-3 boys and girls, your books are in the top 20 for both groups (males and females)….I would like to invite you to visit our school again…”
