Some news hot off the press about an exciting event coming up at the end of the month! On Sunday 29 October, from 2 to 4pm I’m going to be doing a reading event with two other authors, at The Gallery in Slaithwaite.
I’ll be reading excerpts from Revolution Day and talking about the inspiration for the book. Sharing the limelight will Christina Longden, author of Mind Games and Ministers and A Cuckoo in the Chocolate, romantic comedies with a political and satirical edge (and a friend from Holmfirth Writers Group); and fellow Crooked Cat author Angela Wren whose crime novels Messandriere and Merle are set in France (Angela has visited this blog a couple of times). So there will be a good mix of fiction – politics, intrigue, crime and romance – with some synergies between the different books. You can find out more about Chris and Angela via the links at the bottom of this post.
The Gallery, run by furniture maker Wendy Beattie, is an amazing space, full of beautiful and interesting objects (see pic), and has its own café, so there’ll be plenty to eat and drink at the event. And I know from experience that the coffee (which coincidentally is roasted by Christina’s family business, Dark Woods) is excellent!
All in all then, I’m getting very excited about this event, and hope to see lots of my friends there. The Gallery is on Britannia Road, Slaithwaite HD7 5HE – go through the Emporium to the door beyond.
