I wasn’t planning on writing any more posts until after the launch but the Grim Gathering was so fantastic I couldn’t resist.
For those of you that don’t know, the Grim Gathering is an annual event organised by Fantasy Faction, supported this year by Harper Voyager and hosted at Waterstones. It’s a chance for people who normally chat on the forums to meet each other. There are also books and authors!
Here’s a list of some of my favourite bits:
Coming inside to see copies of The Vagrant set out and my own signing table.
The crowd arriving.
The panel. I was quite nervous about it to be honest but the audience were warm and the other authors very supportive and it soon flew by.
I honestly didn't expect to get many people in my line. After all, my book doesn’t officially launch till the 23rd so I was beyond delighted with all the people that came and bought a copy. Thanks to everyone for making my first signing line so much fun!
It was so good I stayed to the bitter end!
