Book the dates! The Accidental Wife is going on tour!!!
I love the public library system, it’s one of the greatest achievements of the 20th Century and we have to fight against the insidious weakening of our cash-strapped libraries. Go out and use your library! And no better time than March 2017 to do so…
Bessbrook Library: 6.30pm 21st March
Portadown Library: 6pm 22nd March
Lurgan Library: 11am 28th March
Armagh City Library: 6.30 pm 28th March
I’ll be there in all my glory, and I’m thrilled that the interviewer at all these events will be NI Crime writer extraordinaire, Anthony J Quinn the international best seller of Disappeared, Silence and Trespass, and the creator of Detective Celsius Daly. I’ll be having a brief fan-girl moment, but I’m sure we’ll soon be sick of the sight of each other.
Since The Visit won the BGEIBA Short Story of the Year award and the Portadown Times published this article about the Big Read, so many of my old friends have reached out on Facebook and Twitter and reconnected. That’s been one of the most joyful aspects of the whole writing journey so far. I hope that my old friends and new readers will take the chance to come along and meet me at one of the events above.
The nine public library branches in Co Armagh have 300 copies of The Accidental Wife…get in there and start reading! See you soon.
