Edinburgh Festival Appearance!

24 Jun

eibf_colour_logoOoooooh it’s so exciting and also a little bit scary, I’m going to be appearing at the Edinburgh Book Festival this year!

I can’t wait, not least because my author friends have told me I will get a special Edinburgh Festival lanyard with my name on it AND there is an authors yurt, where famous author-type people hang out. I suspect I will still be clinging to the doors of that yurt by my fingernails on the last day of the festival, as they desperately try to usher me out. (I still can’t entirely believe they’re going to let me in it, to be honest. And if anyone from the festival reads this, chances are, they probably won’t now.)*

Lanyards and yurts aside, I hope the event will be pretty cracking too. It’s called So Embarrassing, and I’m appearing with Andy Robb. I’ve not met him yet, but we’ve emailed and he seems aces, so I hope we’re going to have a laugh. (His book, by the way, is HILARIOUS).

Our event is on Sunday, August 18th at 6pm, so do come along if you can! All the details are here.

*If these things aren’t actually true, please don’t shatter my illusions.

Bath Festival of Children’s Literature Appearance

14 Jun


Oooh, it’s all been a bit quiet on the blog of late, hasn’t it? That’s because I was on deadline with Suzy 2 for the end of May, so my brain melted while I was trying to get that done, and then I’ve been avoiding the PC ever since, if I’m honest. I WILL be blogging again soon, I promise, I’ve got lots to tell you. But in the meantime, I’ve popped in to tell you that I’m appearing at the Bath Festival of Children’s Literature this September! I’m REALLY excited, this festival is very dear to me as I worked very closely with the original directors in getting in set up. I’ve stewarded there a lot, and managed more signing queues than you can shake a stick at.

I’m appearing on Sunday 29 September at 230pm in the Mission Theatre in Bath, with fellow author Mark Lowery. I’ve not read his book yet, but the publishers sent me a copy and the first few pages are properly, properly funny, so I’m looking forward to it muchly.

Our event is called Love and Pants, and you can find all the details you need here. Hope you can come along!

(Don’t forget to check out the other great events on offer too, it’s such a fantastic festival.)
