Happy Author with book

I had to share this picture (THANK YOU Lucinda Sieger) I don’t know when I’ve seen an author look so deliriously happy to have their very own book in their hands.

That’s Math Jones, that is, with The Knotsman. You can see Math looking very happy about his book this WEDNESDAY 10th April at The Nell of Old Drury, Catherine Street Covent Garden from 7pm where we will be celebrating publication with cake and ale as is proper for something set in the seventeenth century, and readings from Math. Free entry, free cake, but we do expect you to buy a book!
