It's that time of year again (1). Blood of the Mantis, Shadows of the Apt book 3, is being let out of its cage on the 7th of August, and, cometh the book, cometh the signings.
We're keeping with our track record (2) of adding an additional venue for each book, and some of the details are still up in the air, and will be filled in as soon as I have them, but…
Friday 7th August — 12pm-1pm (probably) — Forbidden Planet, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London.
Saturday 15th August — 3pm-5pm, Waterstones Bookshop, United Reform Church, 89a Broad Street, Reading
Saturday 22nd August — 1pm-2pm (probably), Travelling Man, 332 Central Road, Leeds LS1 6DE
Saturday 29th August — time to be confirmed, Garforth Bookshop, 15 Main Street, Garforth LS25 1DS
So, come one, come all, bring friends, enemies and complete strangers. I will be signing (3) anything put in front of me except legally binding documents.
(1) Strictly speaking it's that time of six months again.
(2) If you can have a track record for something you've basically done once before.
(3) And illustrating, as anyone who's had anything signed by me before will attest. I am, in fact, still trying to get down my sketch mantis, as the buggers turn out to be surprisingly fiddly and resistant to simplification. Book 4 will be worms, damn it.
