Extra Events for The Wisdom of Crowds

Due to various unforeseeable circumstances, such as the Swansea branch of Waterstones flooding the evening before I was due to arrive (seriously, you can’t make it up), we had to shift the three extra Wisdom of Crowds events back a couple of weeks. Obviously it’s bad that the shop flooded, but the UPSIDE is that if you live in Swansea, or for that matter Cardiff or Birmingham, THERE IS STILL TIME to get a ticket and come and see me in the actual flesh. Details below:

Wednesday 13 October 

BIRMINGHAM IN-PERSON EVENT
6.30pm Waterstones

Tickets and more information

 

Thursday 14 September 

SWANSEA IN-PERSON EVENT
6.30pm Waterstones

Tickets and more information

 

Friday 15 September 

CARDIFF IN-PERSON BOOK SIGNING
1.30pm Waterstones

Tickets and more information

 

Hope to see some of you at one or other…

A little update to the UK tour happening in but a couple of weeks… Typically the lunchtime events are just a signing, open to all, the evening ones are reading, talk, questions then signing, or in a few cases, now, an ‘in conversation’ style event with a few friends o’ mine, which will generally take […]

A First Law Re-Read

The first step in the lengthy process of revising and rewriting my new trilogy is re-reading all the other First Law books, the details of which have become in some cases a little sketchy, I will confess, to make sure there’s nothing I’ve forgotten, or got wrong, no useful characters or relationships left out, no […]
