If you're reading this, the chances are you already know me and the last thing you want is to run into me in London. Well, if you live in the UK's capital, it's time to find an excuse to get out of it, because I will be visiting the Piccadilly branch of Waterstones on the last evening of September.

Here's the blurb:

"Join us for an evening of fascinating tales and fantastical worlds, as authors Peadar O’Guilin and Laure Eve discuss how traditional myths and folklore create hypnotic and engaging worlds in YA fiction. The event will be chaired by Waterstones Piccadilly favourite Katherine Webber."

Tickets are £3 -- that's you paying us, not the other way around!

READING

My reading has crawled almost to a halt lately, mostly for reasons I can't discuss here. But a few stories have sneaked their way into my eyeballs.

First up, is The Graces by Laure Eve, who, you may have noticed will be appearing with me at the London event above. It's a beautifully written tale of subtle witchcraft and obsession. Looking forward to the sequel.

And speaking of sequels, I've started The Obelisk Gate, N.K. Jemisin's follow-up to last year's brilliant The Fifth Season. I'm crawling through it, due to... stuff, but it's great so far.

Finally, for my future reading pleasure, I have scored an ARC of Vic James's The Gilded Cage, which has people over on Goodreads raving about it. I look forward to raving a bit myself.



WATCHING

Nope. Not a thing. Just... too... busy...

NEWS

Lots of great reviews continue to pour in about The Call. Here's a new one on the femminist website Etym. Looks good to me!

YOU?

How're you?

I am going to hope and presume that your being so busy is a good thing. :-)
