So, what you’ve all been waiting for. My big news is…
Blind Side is coming out as a paperback!! It’ll be available at the end of February from UK bookshops and Amazon. (If your bookshop doesn’t have it in stock, please ask them to order it.) I’ve been dying to tell everyone about this for ages, was only just given the green light. It came as a very welcome surprise when I found out from my publisher at Unbound. A paperback is a tangible thing that I can carry around when walking the dog or going shopping, and whip out whenever I spot anyone who looks like a lover of dark, suspense-filled tales… (Plus a lot of my friends think that a book isn’t a proper book till you can turn down the corners, jot stuff in the margins and lodge it in your bookshelf to impress guests.)
To celebrate this stroke of good fortune, I’m having book launch next month. My blog followers are very welcome to join me.
Time: 6.30 to 8pm
Date: Thursday 16th March
Place: Daunt Books, 51 South End Road, Hampstead NW3 2QB (https://www.dauntbooks.co.uk/hampstead).
The bookshop is around the corner from Keat’s House (worth seeing if you want to make a day of it), 5 mins walk from Hampstead or Belsize Park tube stations, and almost opposite Hampstead Heath railway station. Parking on roads nearby.
Wine, soft drinks, etc provided. Orders for exotic drinks can be placed but will not necessarily be accepted. (I’ll be heading off to the nearest pub afterwards, you can get them in there.)
I’m very grateful for Daunt Books, Hampstead for offering to host this event. The location is especially apt given that much of Blind Side is set in or close to Hampstead (it’s where Georgie and Nikolai meet up for a walk one wintry day, those who’ve read the book may remember).
That’s all for now. I hope to see some of you on the 16th. I’m looking forward to putting on my party dress and mingling with some literary types…
