I am absolutely delighted to be appearing at the Ullapool Book Festival this weekend coming, click on the pic to go to their site and check out the fantastic line-up – Denise Mina, Don Paterson, John Burnside, Bernard MacLaverty etc, etc.
I’m appearing on the Saturday night alongside brilliant songwriter and storywriter Aidan Moffat, where we’ll be discussing this, that and the other with Rodge Glass, who’s also a damned fine writer. No doubt we’ll be chatting about The Year of Open Doors, the story collection we all played a wee part in that came out last year. I’ll also be playing some tunes, as will Aidan, I think. Should be a cracking night and a brilliant weekend – if you’ve never been before, Ullapool is a beautiful and relaxing place, and their festival is one of the best book events in the country. See yeh there, eh?
