Hay Festival, this Sunday!

Don’t forget that I’m reading at Hay Festival this Sunday, 6th June. It’s part of an event based around ‘coming of age’ novels, so I’ll be reading with Stephen May, author of Tag (Cinnamon Press), and Elaine Walker, author of The Horses (Cinnamon Press), and answering some questions from Jan Fortune-Wood, who is editor at Cinnamon Press.

It starts at 11am in the Welsh Literature marquee on the main festival site, and best of all, it’s free entry. See you there!


News from the other side of the launch


Firstly, I’m really sorry to those of you who read this blog avidly (you may be few, but you mean a lot to me). The site has been down for the past week or so, no thanks to my evil ex-webhost. We are no longer on speaking terms and it was a bad break-up. But it’s good to be back online.

So anyway, the launch! I think it went quite well – I was thrilled with the amount of people who turned up, and the good reaction to the book. It was pretty weird sitting up on stage and signing copies of my book. I was doubly pleased as my publisher announced that she is also taking on my novella, which is due out next year. Obviously, I have been doing one-handed cartwheels across the living room ever since. I do have some more launch photos which I will put up very soon, so keep them peeled.

Hay tickets are now available from http://www.hayfestival.com/p-110-cinnamon-press-presents-.aspx and it’d be lovely to see you there. Tickets are a mini £5 so please come and support Dinner Time, as well as Kate North and Mike Jenkins’ novel and novella respectively.
