Lincoln Book Festival. Discussion and reading from A Habit Of Dying. Kicked off History Day at 10.30am with an appreciative audience, full of questions. The post presentation discussion went on later in the corridor and by the tea counter, which is usually a good sign. Very exciting that another author wanted a copy of the book!

Broadcast dates for the recorded interview with Sam Loveless for the excellent community radio station Swindon 105.5. It was such an enjoyable experience talking with Sam about A Habit Of Dying and the process of writing, the time flew past as we ranged over a few more topics besides - but they've probably been edited out! Listen to Swindon 105.5 2pm on the 8th and repeated at 5pm on 14th. The broadcasts are all streamed live over the web, too, so click the logo above if you want to listen in distant parts - but please remember time differences if you're outside the UK.
