I have a busy autumn of travel looming, most of it revolving around publicity events for the new Reeve&McIntyre book, Pugs of the Frozen North. But I also have a few events lined up where I’ll be talking about Railhead.
On Saturday 3rd October I’ll be at the Bath Children’s Literature Festival, where I’ll be joining bestselling fantasy author Joe Abercrombie (he ‘grabbed’ George RR Martin and ‘refused to let go’, according to the quote on the cover of his new YA novel Half the World). Author Sarah Pinborough will be chairing the event.
On Sunday 4th October I’ll be appearing at the Cheltenham Literature Festival alongside Lucy Saxon (The Almost King), Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell (The Edge Chronicles, etc) to talk about writing Fantastic Worlds.
On Saturday 17th October I’ll be at the Lakes International Comics Festival, where I’ll be joining one of my favourite artists, Ian McQue, to talk about how we approach creating fantasy worlds, and how he would go about visualising the worlds of Railhead.
And on Saturday 14th November I’m doing a morning show all on my own at the Bristol Old Vic, with readings, chat, Q&A etc.
Hopefully there will be more Railhead-related wanderings next year. Of course, if you can’t make it to any of these events but you can make it to one of the Pugs shows I’m happy to sign copies of Railhead after those, too…
