Authors will tell you how great is the feeling - after months, maybe years of - hard work on their manuscripts, to see their latest creation in the bookshop. The Story Teller in Billericay High Street has just placed BASILDON, OUR HERITAGE written by my lovely friend, Frances Clamp, into their front window and already sales are climbing. This book can also be found in Waterstone's and other good book shops around Essex. Here we see Frances, Vin Harrop, Chairman of the Foundation for Essex Arts, Bob Fisher who was responsible for some superb photographs, and other folk who attended the launch at Eastgate Centre in Basildon a fortnight ago.
