book launch of the inside-out house

'The Inside-Out House' book launch took place in the lovely café of Waterstones, York. Many thanks to Benjamin Whitelaw and John Schofield who took photos throughout the evening. Dave at Waterstones introduced the evening:



Here's me reading from, and talking about, 'The Inside-Out House' at the start of the event:



Six local writers supported the event by reading or performing their own fiction. I really enjoyed all of the readings, and so did the rest of the audience!

Steve Toase...


Laura Munteanu...


Andy Humphrey...


Dai Parsons...


John Walford...



Helen Sant...



Also present was Helen Cadbury, who wrote one of the back cover testimonials
 
 
'The Inside-Out House' was the top-selling novel at Waterstones that day, even outselling 'Gone Girl'! Thanks again to everyone who attended, read, bought copies, and made the evening one to remember.

new book: juli jana's ra-t

Juli Jana, who co-presents the More Poetry monthly London Event, is pleased to announce the launch of her new chapbook, 'ra-t' from Shearsman. Here's another innovative book cover that I'm sure reflects Juli's imaginative writing. She'll be performing it at a Poetry Café launch on October 16, along with Johan de Wit, John Jazzman Clark, Petri, and Ken Champion. This is a joint launch with Patricia Debney's 'Gestation'. Have a great launch, Juli and Patricia!
