Plans are now well underway for the second volume of Curious Tales. Last year there were six of us; this year there will be eight: seven writers and one artist, our very own Beth Ward again, who did such a beautiful job of the illustrations for the first book. What else can I tell you? There will be a set of bloodcurdling ghost stories published in a fancy anthology this winter. There will be a series of events (some with mulled wine, some with COSTUMES), starting in early December, in libraries and bookshops across the country. The two special guest writers for 2014 are very special indeed. Meantime watch this space. And THIS space. If you like.
I wrote this piece for the Waterstone’s blog about Animals, social disobedience, and an event I’m doing on Thursday evening at Waterstone’s Piccadilly with Zoe Pilger and Helen Walsh. Come!
I did a Shelfie for the Indy mag. You’ll see from this how absolutely excellent I am with technology and things like legible screen-grabs. Hi.
Animals is this month’s ELLE Book Club choice. If you want to take part you can find out more here. You can also download a PDF with discussion points and guidelines on how to set up your own book group if you fancy.
I wrote this piece for The Debrief. It’s basically investigative journalism.
So I made this video vox pop thing to help promote Animals. My friend Kim May of Asta Films edited it. It took her fucking ages and I’m really grateful. Thanks, Kim. Thanks also to everyone who agreed to be in it. You maniacs.
