Edge-Lit 5 / The Thirteen Signs

I'll be at Edge-Lit 5 at the Derby Quad on Saturday 16th July. I'll be part of the Boo Books launch event, where I'll be talking about, and reading from, Trying To Be So Quiet, alongside Tracey Fahey who will be doing the same from her forthcoming collection The Unheimlich Manoeuvre. The launch takes place at 11am, which means I'll then have the rest of the day free for socialising, buying books, and attending panels and launches. Hope to see a few of you there - say hello!

One event I'll definitely be attending is the legendary Edge-lit raffle, hosted by Sarah Pinborough and Conrad Williams. Can't wait for the irreverent, abusive and foul-mouthed descriptions of the prizes... even though one of my books is up for grabs this year. *Gulp*


In other news, I'm pleased to say my story Hooked will be appearing in the anthology The Thirteen Signs, in which each author has written a story based on a sign of the zodiac. Mine was Pisces; just for the record, I hate all that astrology bumpkin, a view I've tried to subtlety work into my tale...

The Order Of Aries - Mark West
Come Join The Blood Parade - Lily Childs
Seven For Eight - Romain Collier
Carapace - Raven Dane
Leo - Tim Dry
Solomon Carson And The Death Of A Virgin - Trevor Kennedy & Robert E. Tate
Leeber - Christine Dougherty
The Scorpion Dance - Amelia Mangan
One in Twelve - Steve Byrne
A Sorrow Of Sweet Pipings - Jan Edwards
Ganymede - Emile-Louis Tomas Jouvet
