Here’s a lovely wee video about the importance of books. I get a line in it, but then get upstaged by my daughter, who gets the punchline at the end! This was put together by the Scottish Book Trust who do amazing work across the country, especially right now during Book Week Scotland. Enjoy!
I am going to be in Iceland for the next few days for Iceland Noir. This is not a reaction to the Brexit catastrofuck, honest.
Delighted to be at the Pisa Book Festival this weekend to celebrate publication of L’Ultima Volta (Gone Again) by my wonderful Italian publisher Casa Sirio. I’ll also be doing events at Nuova Avventura in Marina di Carrara and Lettera 22 in Viareggio. Ciao!
Here I am in the Royal Literary Fund podcast talking about tackling Edinburgh in my fiction. Also in this week’s podcast are Kathleen Jones and Catherine O’Flynn.
This should be a lot of fun. I’m appearing at my local book festival on Saturday talking about favourite books and music. Tickets are free from Porty Library but apparently going fast.
So I’m going to be on Saturday Live on Radio Four this weekend, 9am. Really looking forward to it!
So it’s Bloody Scotland festival in Stirling this weekend, and I’m doing a few things:
Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers are playing, 10pm Friday. Tickets here.
Scotland v England Football Match, 2pm Saturday, free to watch and laugh.
Come Hell or High Concept, 7pm Saturday. Tickets here. This is with Gordon Brown and Will Carver, talking about high concept fiction, which none of us know anything about.
Crime at the Coo, 9pm Saturday. This is sold out, I’m afraid. I’ll be playing some tunes most likely.
Come and find me somewhere!
