I’m attending Nine Worlds again this year and I’ll also be at Fantasy in the Court, read on for details for what I’m doing and a chance to win a signed hardback of The Vagrant.
Fantasy in the Court – Thursday 6th August (6pm-9pm)
Hosted by Goldsboro books and Hodderscape, it’s packed to the gills with fabulous and mostly friendly fantasy and science fiction authors. It’s also our tenth wedding anniversary so Emma and I will be planning to make merry!
Further details are on the Goldsboro website.
Nine Worlds Geekfest
For those who don’t know, it’s a super inclusive celebration of all things geeky and I thoroughly enjoyed the last two times I went. It's well worth a look at their website for further details. Here’s where to find me:

You’re in our world now – The invention of myths for a modern audience.* Country C&D, 11.45am – 1.00pm
Newbie Meetup. Country A, 1.30pm – 2.45pm
If you’re new to Nine Worlds, come along and have a cup of tea with me and Em. Chat, ask all your questions, meet other people who have no idea what’s going on! I guarantee by the time you’ve finished, you’ll feel right as rain.

I’ll be joining some other late night warriors to do a short reading from something new and never before heard by mortal ears.

If you’re going to Nine Worlds and want to win a signed hardback of The Vagrant all you have to do is go attend any of the programme items above and ask me the question: “Am I the First?” If you’re the first person to ask me that, you win. Simple!***
