Ist May 2019, 10.45-11.45am – #IndyBookTourCymru2019 kicks off at Pen’rallt Bookshop and Gallery, Machynlleth with coffee and crime – an opportunity to come and chat with me about the first book in the Teifi Valley Coroner series, None So Blind and newly issued In Two Minds. All welcome – it would be lovely to see you there but, because of space issues, you do need to book. Click here if you’d like to do that.
2nd May, 10.30 – 12.00 – #IndyBookTourCymru2019 is at Awen Meirion in Bala. I’ll be signing books and chatting about the Teifi Valley Coroner in both English and Welsh, Awen Meirion being a bookshop that stocks both Welsh and English titles. Do come along – Croeso i bawb!
3rd May, 12.30-1.30pm – #IndyBookTourCymru2019 is at Palas Print in Caernarfon. I’ll be their ‘lunchtime author’ in the shop saying hi to people who drop in over lunchtime and if anybody’d like a book signed, I’d be delighted. Another bilingual event. Digwyddiad ddwyieithog – byddaf yn gwisgo’r swigen bach oren. Croeso i bawb! You can indicate your interest on their FB page here.
8th May 2019, 11-1 – #IndyBookTourCymru2019 is at Siop Y Pentan in Carmarthen. I’ll be chatting to readers and signing copies of None So Blind and In Two Minds (available to booshops taking part in the tour ahead of its official publication date of 31st May!) Come along – Carmarthen features briefly in None So Blind and, during the Rebecca Riots, it was the scene of the last cavalry charge on British soil when dragoons rode on the Rebeccas with cutlasses drawn!
10th May 2019 – I will be appearing at Crimefest with other Crime Cymru authors Cathy Ace, Rosie Claverton and Gail B Williams at 2.50. We’ll be convincing the audience that Crime Cymru is not all sheep, rugby and singing…
25th May 2019, 10.30 – 12.00– #IndyBookTourCymru2019 will be at Awen Teifi bookshop in Cardigan. This is my hometown and very much the central location for In Two Minds so if you’d like me to point out where the lock up was, where the Black Lion (where Harry and John base their operations in the book) is and where the Mwldan foundry was – come and see me there and I can point them out to you!
27th May, 2pm – 3pm – #IndyBookTourCymru2019 will be at Cover to Cover in Mumbles, Swansea – regional finalist of the Independent Bookshop of the Year awards. I’ll be at the shop talking to readers and signing books – come along and celebrate the bank holiday with a new book (or two…!)
28th May, 11.30am – 1.00pm – #IndyBookTourCymru2019 will be at Victoria Bookshop in Haverfordwest. I’ll be meeting and chatting to readers and signing books – if you’re in the west for half term, pop in and say hi!
29th May 2019 -7.30pm – #IndyBookTourCymru2019 will be at Chapter One bookshop, Narberth. Over wine and nibbles, I will be talking about why I chose to set my historical crime series in the Teifi Valley and giving sneak previews of In Two Minds which will be on sale. Do come along – the bookshop is part of Narberth Museum.
30th May 2019, 11am – 12.30pm – #IndyBookTourCymru2019 will be at St David’s bookshop in Britain’s smallest city, St David’s in Pembrokeshire. Come and see me at what may also be Britain’s smallest bookshop – don’t be surprised if my signing table is outside!
1st June, 2019 2.30 – 4.00 – to round off the tour, I will be launching In Two Minds at The MainPlace, Coleford. This is an open event with a chance to listen to me talk a bit about the background to the book and to buy copies if you would like. There will also be tea and cake!
