Currently viewing the tag: "Marlborough LitFest"

August has been a busy month, with the launch of Sworn Sword followed by a string of interviews, events and signings. So far the tour has taken me from Cambridge to London, the Cotswolds, Marlborough and Salisbury – and that’s just the beginning. Here’s a selection of the latest photos:

Many thanks to my hosts for these events: to the friendly folks at the Cotswold Bookstore in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, for not only providing freshly baked honey cakes but also creating the wonderful window display seen above, complete with medieval castle. Check out their blog for details of future signings, including one with Panama Oxridge, author of the ingenious novel Justin Thyme.

Especial thanks also to the White Horse Bookshop in Marlborough, Wiltshire, who last week put on a fantastic and well attended evening signing session and supplied both customers and author with wine. They’ll be supporting the Marlborough LitFest, where I’ll be appearing as part of the Wiltshire Writers panel on Friday 23 September.

For further news of signings, talks, readings and festival appearances, take a look at my Events page. More dates are being added all the time.

The latest addition to the list is a talk at the Durham Book Festival on Friday 21 October. Returning to the place where Sworn Sword – and Tancred’s journey – begins, I’ll be speaking about the novel’s connection to the city and more generally about my inspiration for the series, and what particularly fascinates me about the Norman Conquest.
