So the big news announced yesterday is that on August 25th at 3.45 I will be appearing with Glenn Patterson as part of the Edinburgh International Book Festival. I used to be a regular in the audience at the festival but since moving to Japan I’ve had to look on from afar, envious. Now I’ve got to hardly believable opportunity to take part as an author. This caps what has been an amazing month with great reviews and press coverage of The Waves Burn Bright and has left me feeling really grateful to be lucky enough to have this chance. I’ll be appearing in the Baillie Gifford Corner Theatre and tickets, which go on sale June 21st come in at a very reasonable £8 / £6. See some of you there.
