Come to London! Maybe not right now, but in January. When all the seasonal madness is out of the way.
To be specific: come to London on Tuesday January 15th for the official launch of This Dreaming Isle. I’ll be there to read, answer questions and sign books, and I’ll be in the company of fellow writers Robert Shearman, Catriona Ward, Kirsty Logan, Gareth E. Rees, James Miller and Gary Budden. Amazing. If you want to get a copy and get it signed by lots of the authors involved this will be the place to do it.
Wait, I forgot to mention the actual place. It will be at The Star of Kings from 7-9pm. Here’s the meetup page with more details.
