Tomorrow, I head off to Lowestoft for the book launch at Horror in the East Convention.
This is the first one of these, so who knows what to expect. But judging by the lineup of authors, it should be a cracker.
I recently read Joe and Me, a brilliant short story by David Moody, so I really keen to meet him too. This is one of a new series of chap books which This is Horror are producing. They are well worth a look.
This is a FREE convention, and I'd like to thank Emma the organiser, for givng us the opportunity to launch the book there.
We've now arranged a London launch date for Splinters too, so those people who can't make it to Lowestoft will be able to whoop and cheer and congratulate Joseph on a fine piece of writing.
It's happening on Saturday November 10th, from 7pm at the Big Green Bookshop in cosmopolitan Wood Green, North London.
Detail of the launch can be found here.
