Roys prides itself on celebrating the area and its heritage.

Roys works closely with Bittern Books, a wholesaler and distributor of local books, situated in Badersfield.

The spotlighting of authors from the area, history, and stories in East Anglia is a common feature in Roys stores.

Steve Haines, one of Bittern's owners, said: "Roys is one of our best customers, and not only for local fiction, such as the David Blake series, but also for local history and tourist information.

"There is a huge amount of interest in Norfolk for the history of the area, and people still love to buy physical books, both as gifts and for themselves.”

"The growing search for connection to people and places is stronger than ever, and therefore Roys local book range is once again on the increase; facilitated by the diligent work of our Buying and Store teams in collaboration with our supply base."

Those wanting to meet David Blake or purchase a signed copy of his new book should visit Roys flagship Wroxham department store on Saturday, March 30, from 11am to 1pm.
