Good to meet you at the "Atherstone Shindig!" this afternoon, Matt!

Quite a fun afternoon, though that wine gave me a headache. Oh dear. Hopefully I'll get over to your neck of the woods sometime. But who knows when?

Yes, lovely to meet you and hear you read, and the other readers too.
I had a word with Jane about me setting some readings up in Leicester and maybe Stamford nearer Christmas, once your book is out and to coincide with the next Under The Radar, so hopefully we can sort something out.
