Well it’s that time of year again, when Portsmouth Bookfest takes over my life for a month.

This is my third year of being involved in the Bookfest and it really only seems like 2 years and 12 months since I first got involved – honestly, it does…

So, to celebrate the launch of the paperback of Portsmouth Fairy Tales for adults, we’ll be headlining at the Guildhall!

Yep, you can check us out in the presence of the Lord Mayor soon – yeah, yeah, yeah… I know what you’re going to say

Woooooh, you’ve changed… You don’t hang out with riff-raff anymore!

Well, you’ve obviously not met any of my friends and family if you truly believe that!!!

The event is free, but please follow the link below if you wish to book a ticket for what should be an entertaining evening.

Here’s the official blurb…
