I’m really excited to announce that a second edition of The Birds That Never Flew will be published by Thunderpoint at the end of April. You can pre-order a copy, with it’s lovely new spring jacket and mention of the Polari First Book longlist, here.
I’ll be reading from the novel at Waterstones in Argyle Street Glasgow on the 7th of May in an event hosted by the wonderful Sara Sheridan. Sara, is a prolific writer and she’s a captivating person with the kind of dogged determination that enthuses and inspires. Sara will be in the chair for a Q & A at the reading and I’ll be looking forward to questions from the audience that challenge and excite!
I should add, there’s wine!
Please come along, I’d love to see you.
Finally… I’ve managed to get my hands on a preview copy. It is very beautiful!! Thanks Thunderpoint.
