Well, the new year has brought two nice things to look forward to. Firstly, Jen Campbell is going to interview me for her blog so I can't wait to have a chat with her about the book. Go and have a wander over to Jen's site now if you haven't already - there's a great list of previous interviews on there including ones with Neil Gaiman, Joanne Harris, Joe Dunthorne, Jon McGregor and many others. Also, while you're there please buy one of the few remaining copies of Jen's poetry pamphlet '100 Poem Challenge', the proceeds of which go towards EEC International which funds research centres using stem cell research and gene therapy to find a cure for degenerative eyesight problems. Jen is a great writer so you'll not only get some nice, new reading matter but you'll be supporting charity too.
Secondly, I have been asked to read as part of a short story event for
York Literature Festival on April 1st so that should be good. I will pass on the details as soon as I
have them, as well as info on the other writers who will be
reading as part of the event.
