Book Slam podcast

The latest Book Slam podcast is out now! You can hear me reading from A Heart Bent Out of Shape (recorded at The Tabernacle back in November) and talking to journalist Alex Rayner about the inspiration behind the book. I share airtime with the marvellous William Boyd (who gives us a delectable reading from Solo), there's music from Lewis Floyd Henry, and poetry from Chris Head. Patrick Neate, my Arvon writing tutor of yore, dials in from Zimbabwe... Go HERE to listen.

CLIC Sargent Get In Character auction - be in my next book!

How do you fancy having a character named after yourself in my next book? On Thursday night the CLIC Sargent 'Get In Character' auction launched - it's an amazing cause, helping children and young people with cancer, and one that's being supported by some fantastic authors… check it out HERE.

I'm working on my third novel at the moment, and that's the one that you can bid on… As well as having a mention in the acknowledgements I'll name a character after the winning bidder… I can't promise they'll end up as the heroine or hero, more likely a member of the supporting cast, but they'll certainly be interesting, and important to the story… and written in with much love and gratitude. 

Bidding closes on Sunday 9th March at 8pm UK time… if you'd like to support the work of CLIC Sargent, and have some fun into the bargain, go HERE to check out my page on the auction site.

Thanks for listening (reading) X
