News & Events

UK Newsletters

In the UK publishers used to produce a Newsletter to coincide with each new book, telling readers a little about it. Everything is digital now, but readers can sign up for occasional news by sending email details to: They run a Facebook page for me to sneer at, but John likes it, so he has linked my website to it if you enjoy such stuff.

Events Programme 2018 (more events are being arranged)

Note: I can now only undertake events where the travel is suitable and expected numbers are good. I’m sorry but events may be cancelled if there is not sufficient interest beforehand.

Books are usually available for sale and I will happily sign new ones but please be considerate about older editions. (My handwriting tells its own story…) It is also polite to remember that our hosts at the venue are holding events in order to sell new stock.
