Here’s a picture of Liam reading elsewhere
I will just remedy that…
There we go. A reminder of what a lot of fun we had choosing locality appropriate stories.
You can by a copy of Happy Ending NOT Guaranteed direct and post free here, of if you are in Oxford I expect Dennis still has a couple in stock, or if you are going to Liars’ League tonight, Liam will be there with a handful of books a pen for signing, and a hopeful expression.
Brat is a novel for older children and younger young adults, the first in a fantasy trilogy about Brook, who is 12 at the start of the series. The Trilogy is called The Naming of Brook Storyteller, because Brook, as a storyteller has the power of naming – she can raise or destroy people by the names she gives them, and she earns, and loses, names herself, starting out as Brat, before becoming Spellbinder (book two out in December 2017) and finally Wolftalker (book three out in June 2018)
We are launching Brat with a very informal launch reading at Eltham Centre Library, Archery Road, Eltham SE9 1HA on 7th June at 1.30. The reading will be performed by Carrie Cohen.
We currently have one other reading for Brat arranged (together with Ghillian’s other book, The Old Woman From Friuli.)
Osterley Library, St Mary’s Crescent, TW7 4NB on 22nd July 2017 at 2.30pm. Once again, Carrie Cohen will be reading.
Bookshops, libraries, schools, if you’d like us to visit and read to you, get in touch.

These are the final posts, from the final Story Session of the season.
We’ve made the decision to retire the Story Sessions as a regular thing – and it will only stick its nose out into the light (and inevitable rain – have we EVER done a session when it didn’t rain?) as part of festivals and if asked for – it is regretably too much work for far too little return even when part-funded by those nice people at the Arts Council (Thank you ACE, really). There are other things to get busy with. So Festival organisers – if you ask us, we will put together more sessions, but if you don’t, this is your lot!
Thanks to The Brockley Deli for hosting this season.
Burley Fisher Books in Haggerston is my kind of books shop – small, interested in small presses and with a performance space. And it’s on the Overground!
So delighted to be able to bring Happy Ending NOT Guaranteed to this lovely shop.
Readings in their basement – well lit, excellent acoustic, from Author Liam Hogan taking on health tips for Lycanthropes, out-of-hand artistic installations and the cliff hanger to end all cliff hangers, and Actor Carrie Cohen as the unflappable one woman emergency service, Mavis Ethelwright.
One of the joys of touring an Arachne book is getting an actor or two involved.
Carrie is joining Liam again for
The magnificent Carrie Cohen get’s her cackle on for To Be A Hero
Why would you want your child to be a hero… especially when there’s all that sacrifice involved?
