Seven Stories Event

February looks like it is turning into a busy month; and I’m very pleased to be heading up to Seven Stories in Newcastle (my favourite UK city, by the way…) for a [amazon_link id=”1407116525″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Snorgh[/amazon_link] event to tie in with World Book Day. This year’s World Book Day (the actual date of WBD is Thursday 6th March) at Seven Stories is all about Snorghs, sailors and adventures. So Tom Docherty and I are heading up north to do a warm-up event on Sunday 23rd February. Here’s the link to Seven Stories to find out more.

I’m hugely looking forward to the trip, and am delighted to be doing some events at the Lecti Centre in Varna between the 9th and the 13th of April. Have a look at the link here.

There will be more Bulgarian events forthcoming, so I’ll post to this blog when they are fixed up.

After spending all December reading the tabloid press (and the Telegraph as well), I’d whipped myself up into a state of some excitable frenzy at the thought of 50,000 Bulgarians trooping past my door from the first of January. So in the spirit of Anglo-Bulgarian friendship, back in December I ordered in five thousand copies of my Bulgaria-based novel, [amazon_link id=”9380905076″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Descent of the Lyre[/amazon_link]. What a sales opportunity, I thought: fifty thousand homesick Bulgarians filing past my door, finding their feet in a new country. They would see my book, feel a pang of nostalgia, and snap up a copy.
