A busy week or two… online and in person, July 2021

It’s going to be a busy couple of weeks for me. Not only will I be back at my ‘second home’, Middleham Castle, this coming weekend (24-25th July), offering readings and books signings against the marvellous backdrop of both the castle and the activities of living history company Amicorum, but the following Saturday, I’ll once again be taking part in an online author ‘fayre’.

The Indie Author Virtual Summer Fayre will be taking place over the weekend of 31 July-1 August, from 12 noon to 10pm (BST) each day. And guess who’s kicking everything off at noon on Saturday? Yep – me.

The full line-up of independent authors taking part is as follows:

Why not come along and discover some new favourite authors? There will be lots of discussion, competitions, giveaways, announcements, cover reveals, extracts from books – and that’s just in my slot! (Well, to be honest, I can’t promise you all of those, but I’ll do my best…)

Full details can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/summerbookfayre/. It’s a private group, owing to issues with previous Facebook events, but it’s very easy to join. If I haven’t already sent you an invitation to join us, just locate the big orange button saying ‘Join Group’ and hopefully you won’t have to wait long to be admitted!

And all this while I forge on with the edits for King in Waiting

Hope to see you at one or other (or both) of the events
