Joy be to the United Kingdom, for we now have an itinerary for Red Country events scattered across mainland Britain during October like shining stars across the sable cloth of the heavens. Lunchtime events tend to be signings only, evening events tend to be with a reading and Q&A. We don’t have firm times on the two scottish dates, yet, I’ll post as soon as we do. For ticket prices, contact the relevant store, probably somewhere around the £3-5 mark, and often they’re redeemable against the price of a book.

Rules of engagement – I’ll pretty much sign anything I’ve written, so by all means bring old books with you, though it would be only good manners to the store to be buying at least one book at the same time. Dedications and lines are no problem, but I don’t draw. If you’ve got a big stack of books and there’s something of a queue you might be asked to wait until the end. Proofs are a slightly different matter, as policies are prone to shift, so I can’t promise to give you whatever you’d like in a proof, but honestly I usually do…
