Tickets are on sale for two of the UK events, Ilkley and Stockton. The others are free. But the one to pay attention to right now is the Ilkley Literature Festival. They’ve almost sold out my event already, so if you want to be there, go plunk down your £6 now (£4 for some).

These are all variations on a theme: I talk, I read, I answer your questions, I sign books. At one or two events the Q and A is chaired, but mainly it’ll be me happily telling long stories in answer to short questions. (If you don’t know how this works, see this video of one of my Q and As or a reading.)
