It’s August… It’s almost time for The Edinburgh International Book Festival…
I am delighted to be going to the Edinburgh International Book Festival at the end of the month. You can access all you need to know about the Festival here and about the event I’ll be doing with the lovely Alexia Casale, who wrote the brilliant The Bone Dragon . We will be talking with chair Susan Elsley about Escaping Darkness.
I’ve been nominated for the First Book Award as part of the Edinburgh Festival. If you’ve read the book, and liked it enough to consider giving it a vote.
I have a busy schedule in Edinburgh… I’ll be reading on Sunday 24 August for Amnesty International alongside a number of other authors who will be there to support the work of imprisoned writers. And I will be visiting two schools in Edinburgh, as well as two in Perth and Kinross as part of the Festival’s Outreach Programme, doing workshops and talks. It’s going to be fab!
