Last Saturday I was at the Birmingham Independent Book Fair, at the Ikon Gallery (organised by Writing West Midlands. Thanks guys!).
It was a great opportunity to meet readers, visitors and gallery staff as well as network with fellow authors and independent publishers. A number of us also read from our work.
The fair was held at the top of the building and a number of visitors came to see David Tremlett’s 3 Drawing Rooms and were surprised to find us!
Many contributors were quite inventive, offering not just books, or flyers or postcards but chocolate eggs and flashing horns to go with the art.
More information about who attended can be found here.
And finally, you can get hold of a copy of the book I was promoting (Watching Charlotte Brontë Die: and other surreal stories), available both in print and as an ebook, here.
