Out and about

I am off to beautiful Marlborough this weekend to attend a few talks at their Literature Festival. They have a fabulous programme of events if you happen to be in the area with a few tickets still available. You may check these out here.

Updates can be followed on Twitter @MarlbLitFest. I will be writing about my own festival experiences next week.

Today I am also out and about on the blogosphere. The lovely Claire is hosting me on her feature The Bloggers Bookshelf. Click on the link to find out more.

Have a happy, book filled weekend.

Influx Press put out a list of their literary heroes from 2016 last week and included me. I am still in shock. Good kind of shock, obviously. Influx are a bit rad which makes this even more unexpected and delightful.

Please go and read their post. When you see who else they have included you will understand why I am so chuffed to be standing amongst them. Or sitting down at the back drinking it all in. I shall certainly be drinking something to celebrate.

Thanks Influx. You rock.
