Despite the persistently horrible weather, summer’s here, and it feels like time to post a list of what I’ve got lined up for the next couple of months because, despite the ongoing cluster fuck of UK politics, there are still pockets of pleasure, community, education and distraction from the mess around us.
I expect to be doing the usual LAM (7th of July and 4th of August) and BBB (21st of July and 18th of August) but there are quite a few other summer dates that you might want to take note of.
First up is the opening LAMchester. As you might have worked out, this is the mob behind the LAM branching out in the direction of Northern parts and it’s happening this Sunday. I’ve recently been doing some serious restocking as those of you who follow me on Instagram will have seen.
I’m also going to be back in the Manchester area on 3rd of August for another of Scarlett Flame’s author events. This will be my fourth Manchester signing and I’m looking forward to it, not least because it was Scarlett’s inaugural one that was my introduction to the world of indie author signings.
The weekend after that is Kinkfest, two days of talks and workshops on various aspects of BDSM and general kinkyfuckery – oh, and a party, which makes it the one of my summer dates most likely to involve me in some actual shenanigans if the odds are in my favour and all that. I’ll be doing a session on Dicewriting, so bring a pen and paper if you’re coming along.
There are one or two other things towards the end of August that are not confirmed yet, but I’ll put up more info when I have it. The final listing for my summer dates is another signing on 7th of September, this time at the Albert Dock in Liverpool, where there will apparently be a load of Captain Jack-alikes running round the place as there is some sort of pirate-themed event happening on the same day.
And if you’re unable to catch me with either the Dirty Sexy Words stand or just a selection of my own work, check out the online bookshop, which is about to be updated again with even more titles.
