I’ve just got back from another little trip to London for an evening event at Foyles Charing Cross, alongside debut authors Imogen Hermes Gowar and Mary Lynn Bracht.
It was a lovely event, chaired by Alex Clark, and there were some great questions from the audience at the end! I especially loved meeting people who came to get a copy of If I Die Before I Wake signed, and chatting to some of them about their own writing projects. One woman said she felt inspired by the event, which reminded me of how I have felt after hearing other writers talk. If you’re an aspiring writer, and have never been to listen to others talk – do it! It is a really energising thing to do.
Earlier this week I went on Laura Rawlings’ BBC Radio Bristol show – listen back to the interview from about 1hr 40, here. I’m loving talking to people about the book all the time. As someone said to me the other day – “Your job at the moment is basically going around and chatting, isn’t it?” And chatting is something I am more than happy to do!
