I’m stepping out from behind the drum kit this weekend, performing at the Victorious Festival in Portsmouth. I’ll be reading and playing some tunes at 6pm on Saturday on the Literacy Live stage, which means you can just squeeze me in between Gaz Coombes and The Cribs. Looking forward to explaining my black eye over and over again some more.

Doug will be behind the drums again when the Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers return to the scene of our first ever show, at the Edinburgh Book Festival TONIGHT, 9pm. It’s FREE to get in, but get there early, it will be rammed. We’re also appearing on The Afternoon Show on Radio Scotland TODAY at 2pm, and Doug and Val from the band are appearing on Loose Ends on Radio Four this Saturday at 6.15pm. Fun, eh?

NEW SCOTLAND, NEW TROUBLE – I think that’s what Edinburgh Book Festival have called my event there this year. Anyhoo, it’s me and Malcolm Mackay talking about our speculative crime fiction novels set in alternate Scotlands. Just finished Malcolm’s book, the excellently titled IN THE CAGE WHERE YOUR SAVIOURS HIDE, and it’s terrific. Much to blether about. It’s this Saturday, 7pm in Charlotte Square – do come!
