I am very pleased to be able to tell you that on Sunday October 29th, from 2pm until 4pm, I have been invited to take part in an event with two other authors at The Gallery in Slaithwaite. So let me introduce them to you...
Tim Taylor, fellow Crooked Cat author and creator of Zeus of Ithome, will be talking about the inspiration behind, and reading from, his latest political thriller, Revolution Day. Not that long ago, Tim was subjected to my detailed questioning about his writing as he very kindly agreed to appear on my blog as a guest. You can read the interview here. It will be great to finally meet him in person and if you want to know more about his book, then checkout Tim's webpage.
And then there will be me trying my best to keep up with this auspicious company! I will be introducing my recently published second novel, Merle, which follows on from Messandrierre and begins a few months after the end of book 1. featuring my detective, Jacques Forêt, I will be talking a little about the location and my inspiration for the novels and reading a couple of short extracts. But I won't be giving away the solutions to the crimes! You can find out more about Merle here.
It will an enthralling afternoon of politics, intrigue, crime, comedy and romance. And to further enhance your enjoyment will be the wonderful surroundings of The Gallery, run by furniture maker, Wendy Beattie. It is an incredible space! Check out the website here. Admission to the event is free and there is a café, so you can enjoy the readings with a favourite piece of cake and a cuppa.
If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello. The Gallery is on Britannia Road, Slaithwaite, HD7 5HE - go through the Emporium to the door beyond and you'll find us.
