The long awaited International Book Fair commenced on the 14th October 2009 with the world's literary publishers and TV together with media in its realm. I attended with much anticipation of meeting a publisher or Literary Agent who would take on my following projects to continue the sequence of stories regarding Tom McGuire. I met an abundance of interested parties both from the Literary Publishing world as well as from the TV and media.

Dorothy Schultz - from ZDF German TV was most interested in reading her book as well as Books of Ireland, Sinead, thank you for your time. Zedros Books of Greece, again Thank you for consideration in translating the book into Greek and Most of all to Del Libro del Aragon of Spain, who took me under their wing and allowed me to accompany them for dinner. A thanks also goes to Maria, Christina and Elenor and Francisco Jose Vela for their hospitality and interest in The Adventures of Tom McGuire series one, The Bard of Typheousina.
I hope Elener, you enjoyed the book.
