31st January 2018 – Guest confirmation for those attending Book Launch 24th February 2018 at Edinburgh Zoo. What a place for Fergs to start his flight. I visited here on many occasions as a child. It was one of my first memories looking into the cage of a large ginger Orangutan and not forgetting the wonderful penguin parade.
7th February 2018 – Work starts on web page ecotykes.co.uk Thank you to Kate at 2QT Publishing for all her support in this new adventure. I had registered the ecotykes in 2013. Another adventure to see it appearing online.
8th February 2018 – Visit to Mason Printers to discuss the 2-bookmark flyers for Fergs and the Eco Tykes. I had been making bookmarks when we were taking a holiday in Dumfries and Galloway. One for the corner of the page. It looked like Ferg’s Fin given to him with 2 pairs of flippers (for Fergs 4 trotters!) by Megan the Mermaid from Neptune. Chapter-A Sprinkling of Cocktail Magic. This started to take shape as a flyer.
14th February 2018 – Picked up the Bookmark flyers. Fantastic. Thank you to John Mason Printers
I was then able to deliver the flyers with copies of Fergs and the Eco Tyke for sale at Bolton Abbey! On sale from 22nd February 2018
16th February 2018 – Today at the hairdresser. A young boy was there with his Dad having his haircut. He informed me that he knew me. ‘When have we met?’ I asked.
‘You came to my school.’
‘Oh! Who am I?’
He looked at his Dad, ‘she is Erica Thicket!’
Wow! That’s a first! Book Launch at Edinburgh Zoo 24th February, I have a story to tell. I am Erica Thicket!
20th February 2018– More books and flyers delivered. Thank you The Lime Gallery
