Fantasy in the Court – London, 3 August

  • Technology for writers – 5pm, 5 August, Reims room (also RJ Barker – he’s stalking me)
  • This will be my first Nine Worlds, so I’ll also be wandering around with a dazed and childlike expression of wonder all weekend.

Gothenburg Book Fair – 28-29 September

  • A couple of panel events, details to be confirmed
  • My first time in Sweden!

Escape to Fantasycon: Peterborough – 29 Sept-1 Oct.

  • This is now looking very unlikely due to the book fair above. If I can get back in time I’ll turn up, but I won’t be able to commit to any panels.

Bristolcon, 28 October

  • Nothing booked in yet, but drinkin n fightin probably.
