I attended and did a reading at the excellent Twisted Tongues 5 Event on the 31 March. I was there as part of the Restless Minds team, and three of us (myself, Kristian Elliott and Clare Stevens) were reading.
My reading was an extract from a current work-in-progress. Working title: Hold Your Breath:
…it wasn’t until Mister Revell pointed out the gills in the creature’s throat that I realised what it really was. I was disappointed, and had to admit to the kitchen boys that we didn’t really have a dead woman taxidermied at the foot of the stairs, after all…It was an excellent night of fiction and poetry, and I was very pleased we scribblers from Restless Minds were able to contribute! Thank you to everyone who packed-out the upper floor of the venue, and listened with enthusiasm!
My next reading is at Five Leaves Bookshop on the 29th April in Nottingham City Centre. I’m really looking forward to this one, too, and it’d be great to see you there!
