It was wonderful to take ‘Ski A to Z‘ to where my ski story began at Ski Rossendale, in Lancashire for a book signing event on Saturday.
At a book signing event on Saturday it was great to meet skiers and youngsters starting their own ski journeys. Thank you to everyone who came along to the book signing and to all the team at Ski Rossendale.
I hope everyone enjoys the books, and the bookmarks and ‘colour in’ check ‘lists’ created for the event. Thanks to Killaprint for printing them.
This is the press release that was issued about the book signing…
Ski Book Author/ Illustrator Brings Ski Book Home for Signing
The author and illustrator of new ski book Ski A to Z will be returning to her ski roots to sign books at Ski Rossendale.
Kimberley Kay, debut author and illustrator of Ski A to Z will be signing books at Ski Rossendale, the artificial ski slope where her skiing career began, on Saturday 9th April between 9 am and 12 noon.
Kimberley spent much of her childhood and teenage years skiing and working at Ski Rossendale. Ski Rossendale is now part of the The Hill outdoor entertainment venue.
Kimberley said, “I’m excited to be going back to my ski roots to sign books where it all started. Having skied, raced and worked at Ski Rossendale it will be great to be there with the book to chat about skiing. It is a chance for people to buy a signed copy of Ski A to Z, or to bring their copy of the book along for signing.”
New book Ski A to Z is a practical, fully illustrated introduction to Alpine skiing, intended to answer all the questions new skiers may have and to help prepare them for mountain experiences.
Dave Fuller, manager of Ski Rossendale, said, “Many new people are introduced to skiing through artificial ski slopes such as Ski Rossendale. Kim’s book Ski A to Z complements the instruction we offer at Ski Rossendale, through group and private lessons, so we are delighted that Kim has created this book that can help people with the information they need to get into the sport. The book’s story started here and is now helping skiers across the globe.”
Published by Europe’s leading sports publisher, Meyer & Meyer Sport, Ski A to Z provides information, tips and insights to help novice skiers of all ages grasp the sport. The accompanying illustrations are intended to resonate with avid skiers as well as new, demonstrating the exhilaration and joy of skiing.
Kimberley Kay said, “Ski A to Z is helping to make the sport increasingly accessible to a more diverse audience by helping people to feel that they have adequate information to give skiing a try. Many people may be put off beginning the sport as they simply haven’t a clue where to start, what questions to ask – or even the confidence to ask those questions. Ski A to Z removes that barrier, giving all new skiers access to the information they need to venture into the sport and opens the door to experiencing the wonder of skiing.”
Since starting skiing aged five Kimberley has over forty years of ski experience including racing, teaching, and heli-skiing, as well as ski holiday promotion during a 20 year career in travel PR, which included running the press offices for Going Places and TUI UK.
In full colour hardback format and ebook, Ski A to Z is available to buy now on all online book retailers and through bookshops. More information about the book can be found at www.skiatoz.com
The author is available for interview, comment, and has broadcast experience. Review copies, book extracts and some editorial illustrations can be provided.
