BIG news, my fangtastic followers!

I have quite a few novel readings coming up for anyone interested in hearing my novel being read aloud!

On the 21st of February, I am doing a reading for City University’s LGBT Society from 6pm in Islington. (Message City University LGBT Soc on Facebook for more details.)

On the 22nd February, I am doing a free reading at Westminster Reference Library, from 6.30. I am delighted to say that the LGBT performance poets Sophia Blackwell and Roz Kaveney will also be reading their work. Sophia is a regular host for Apples and Snakes and is also a three-time poetry performer at Glastonbury; the Edinburgh Fringe and other festivals. She has taught workshops for the LGBT community, written for Time Out magazine, and has one collection of poetry published and a novel which was published earlier last year. Roz is a science fiction and fantasy writer and critic who has written for the Guardian and written extensively on vampire hunters (hurrah!) She is also the deputy editor of the transgender-related magazine META. Sophia will be reading some of her Gothic poetry and excerpts from her novel, After My Own Heart. Roz will be reading from her novel Rituals. I am pleased to say that the event will be compered by Niranjan Kamatkar, artistic director of Wise Thoughts – an arts charity for LGBT communities and G-Fest, an arts festival for LGBT people.

For more information on Sophia and Roz, please check out their websites at http://www.sophiablackwell.moonfruit.com/ and http://glamourousrags.dymphna.net/about.html

It would be great to see as many people as possible at Westminster Reference Library for what I’m sure will be a fabulous and fangtastic* night, but please email rblack1@westminster.gov.uk to book a place as space is limited.

Be there or be square! 😉

*yep, it’s the pun that just won’t die
