Pangea is Unputdownable

You all knew that, of course, but now the whole of Bristol in the UK is about to know it, too. Rebecca Lloyd and Sarah Hilary are reading at the Launch Pad session on Saturday 20 October as part of Unputdownable, the Bristol Festival of Literature. Rebecca will introduce the anthology and read The Fixer by Joel Willans. Sarah will read Trilby Kent’s Stealing their Churches behind them. If you’re in the area, do come along and support us. Bristol’s enjoying a whole week of literary events, involving pirates, caves, ghosts and books galore.


Tom Williams: author interview

The Pangea blog tour is almost over (was that a sigh of relief we heard? Surely not!) and we’re lucky to be waving off in style, over at Vanessa Gebbie’s blog where Tom Williams talks about writing, working the slush pile (from the other end) and NaNoWriMo.

For some people November has become synonymous with growing moustaches; for me  it is now the month of words. And so next month I shall again be switching off my inner editor and allowing the words to pour out, without concern as to whether they pass some litmus test of literary worth. November is for celebrating words, for producing a first draft, and I urge anyone and everyone to join in with this wordsmithery.
