I might be going through the most exciting, crazy-busy period of my life so far and possibly ever, but that's not going to stop me tooting my own horn at the official book launch for A is for Angelica!

And so, may I take this opportunity to invite you to the gorgeous Lantern Theatre in Sheffield on Thursday 6 September. It's completely free and you can bag yourself a seat right now.

Apart from drinks, nibbles and wonderful chit-chat, I'll be reading a few extracts from the novel and talking about the writing process, including how the whole shebang came to be.

As a special treat, you'll also get to hear from the brilliant Jonathan Wilkinson, the acclaimed artist and illustrator responsible for Angelica's beautiful cover design.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at iain@writeforyourlife.net and I'll get back to you pronto.
