I got so caught up in
Solstice shorts, I forgot to post these! Thought I’d done it because I’d done snippets on Twitter.
A very successful outing to Manchester Blackwells, with authors travelling in from Newcastle, London and Ynys Mon, and some locals!
Thanks to everyone at Blackwells for making us so welcome (good luck with the move!)
and to the audience for making it such an excellent evening, and buying books!

Blackwells, Manchester. N ear Arthur Lewis Building, The University of Manchester Bridgeford Street, M13 9PL (address confirmed!)
30th November at 6.30pm
