Happy World Book Night!

Tonight's the night that volunteers up and down the country will be giving away hundreds of thousands of books, all to share the love of reading. As well as this book-gifting, the Reading Agency help to organize and promote hundreds of events to celebrate and encourage a love of books and reading.

I'm thrilled to be taking part in the East Midlands' flagship event at Worksop Library tonight, with author Kerry Young. The event is called 'Girls' Night Out', and will feature myself and Kerry reading our work and talking about our favourite writers. I believe there will also be wine. It starts at 7pm and is free! Come along!

Behind a Wardrobe in Atlantis

So, it's real. I have a book! It's a collection of short stories called Behind a Wardrobe in Atlantis, and the beautiful cover was designed by Sam Pash. It's available to buy from Mantle Lane Press right now.

There will be a launch on Saturday 22nd February at the Bean Caffe in Friar Gate Studios, York Street, Derby, from 7pm. All are welcome.

I will be reading stories from the book, and Richard Birkin (Emphemetry/Crash of Rhinos) will be playing his haunting, melodic songs. There will also be fairy lights and cake, and of course, books!
