November book launches – come along!

I have two events coming up in November, both in honour of new books. Drop in and say hi if you’re free…

Clown Wars book launch

My friends Simon and Tim at the Big Green Bookshop have made the foolish schoolboy error of allowing Jeremy Drysdale and I to have a secret clown party on their premises. Except it’s not a secret and no clowns are allowed – see below.

Making of that what you will, do join us for tea, sandwiches and custard pies on the evening of 17th November from 7pm onwards. We will read a passage or two from the book, discuss your concerns about the current spate of clown profiling and mingle a bit too.

Signed copies, as you’d expect, but stocks of the physical books are limited.

The Veil book launch

A few days later, on 26th Nov, I’ll be at Sledgelit in Derby with the owner/editor of Horrific Tales Publishing, Graeme Reynolds. We’ll be launching the limited edition hardback of The Veil (ebook and audio versions also available).

There’ll be lots of other cool stuff going on at Sledgelit and many of your favourite genre authors will be there too. Come and see us!


Tastes & Tales: Fabulous Food and Fantastic Fiction

My favourite deli and cafe ‘Delish’ is organising a rather unusual evening of entertainment.

Three writers of dark fiction will read some of their latest and creepiest work.

Between each performance the audience will be treated to freshly prepared ‘themed’ canapes from the Delish kitchen as well as fine English wines and local craft beers.

The authors will be available to chat, sign books and answer questions and will have a few titles for sale, just in case your appetite isn’t totally satisfied.

And I know from personal experience – I eat in Delish at least once a week – that the food will be scrumptious!

Join me, Sam Hayes, Rod Duncan and Delish’s culinary guiding light, Claire Hopkins, for an evening that will activate your pleasure centres and leave you hungry for more!
