You may have guessed that what with the start of my MA course and my monthly blog for Authors Electric, I’m less likely to be mulling things over here, but this is a reminder of some upcoming events and one great piece of news.
At the risk of repeating myself, this Saturday is ‘Books Are My Bag’ day, so do join us at Foyles in Bristol if you can manage. Details below.
For those who can’t make it there’s a Facebook event which I’ll try (no promises!) to update during the day, or look out for Twitter hashtag #bamb_bristol.
Now some real news! I’m thrilled to have been selected as one of ten readers at the next Stroud Short Stories night in October. Living in what sometimes seems like a distant suburb of Bristol, it’s great to remember we’re actually South Gloucestershire – an area encompassing places as diverse as Kingswood and Kingswood (work that one out if you can) where the brave new world of Yate Shopping Centre rubs shoulders with the cosier confines of Chipping Sodbury. And of course our northern neighbours are in Gloucestershire itself, so it’s great to be meeting up with members of that writing community. I’m not so much pleased to be amongst their ‘best writers’ as totally over the moon. Nearer the time I’ll be brushing up on my performance skills – all tips appreciated!
And finally! You can catch me closer to home at the second South Glos Discover workshop in Bradley Stoke on October 25th.
