I've now got a few hours to go before I read out extracts from my book and talk about how I write.
And how I write is often combined with my experiences which include when I have taught adults of various ages.
I'm not freaked out.
In fact I remember teaching classes of students at a university about gender issues.
Plus I was marking half of their essays (their form teacher marked the other half).
Didn't worry me at all.
Once you've been a front man singing for several bands (including being a guest singer) nothing can bother you. Except stand up comedy which I did a couple of times - now THAT I found scary.
I should add I got applause not boos. But I'll never do that again.
Anyhow. The session is:
Tales of the Macabre: A Gothic Reader's Group
from 1pm at
Chapter One Books,
19 Lever Street,
At least it'll be a distraction from the elections in the UK and in France.
I can certainly talk of the links between the 'Deprivations' novel and politics in the world.
Remember - you can download the Kindle version of this 'Deprivations' novel Monday, 8th May and Tuesday 9th May.
