Wisdom of Crowds Tour – Update

With the book coming out in a mere 4 days (I know, so exciting) a little update on events:

London Piccadilly is now sold out but if you’re in London you can see me the following day at Forbidden Planet. And the Virtual event with Steven Pacey is now going to be on Monday 20th at 8pm via Zoom webinar. For now you can only register from the UK, but I understand it’ll be taking bookings from the US and other territories in due course. Further details on how to book tickets over at my publishers site.

Now due to covid restrictions and all the rest the rules for getting books signed may have to differ from previous years – there may well be different arrangements at each shop so it’s best to check with them directly – but I’m sad to say I can’t promise to sign books you bring with you this time around. We may have a couple of further dates to announce in the coming days, and there will definitely be some interesting conversations involving other authors in the next few weeks too…

The Trouble With Peace is out in but 18 days, people.  Due to the ravages of Covid, the usual practice of filling a bookshop shoulder to shoulder with people who then queue up to be breathed on by an author has rapidly fallen in popularity.  But if the thought of NOT seeing me talk about […]
