Matt Cardle signing
About the book
Matt's dream has come true, and this is his story. Charismatic but down to earth, loved by the judges, the other contestants and, of course, the public for his cheeky smile and warm heart, Matt is a true star in the making. Packed full of unseen photographs shot especially for the book, backstage footage, behind-the-scenes gossip and the full and remarkable story of the winner from X Factor hopeful to popstar sensation, this book is a must-have for all X Factor fans.
Keith Richards' autobiography signing took place at Waterstone's Piccadilly store on Wednesday 3rd November 2010.
With the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards created the riffs, the lyrics and the songs that roused the world, and over four decades he lived the original rock and roll life: taking the chances he wanted, speaking his mind, and making it all work in a way that no one before him had ever done. Now, at last, the man himself tells us the story of life in the crossfire hurricane.
Keith Richards brings us the essential life story of our times in his autobiography Life: Keith Richards.
Some of our events Autumn 2010
On Wednesday 1st September 2010, a collection of lucky Terry Pratchett fans were able to join their favourite author at Waterstone's Piccadilly for a very special midnight signing, to celebrate the launch of the latest book in the Discworld series, I Shall Wear Midnight.
To get the evening underway, Terry answered questions about his books and career from TV presenter and actor, Tony Robinson, and he revealed that he was currently working on the next adult title in the Discworld series. Just before midnight, Terry nipped out to change into a fetching pair of tartan pyjamas, and as the clock struck 12 started signing copies of his new book.
Over the August bank holiday weekend, Robert Muchamore (accompanied by the fabulous CHERUB crew) took on 12 locations, over 4 days, covering 875 miles, to meet his fans and celebrate the publication of Shadow Wave, the 12th book in the CHERUB series.
Check out the video from Day 1 of The Shadow Wave Weekender, when Robert dropped in to meet fans, sign books and give away exclusive CHERUB goodies, at the Waterstone's stores in Kensington High Street, Bluewater and Cambridge Sidney Street.
