Bloody Scotland – what a weekend

So Bloody Scotland is over for year 2. What a weekend. Record ticket sales, great events and brilliant feedback from the audiences. I met some wonderful authors (and drank with some ’till late in the night) – said hello to Lee Child, drove William McIlvanney home, made tequila cocktails on stage, talked nonsense with Doug Johnston and Craig Robertson on a panel, acted as taxi driver, dressed up in a pink apron and abused my liver. All in all a great Bloody Scotland. But the first committee meeting for 2014 is tomorrow? It all starts once more.

Bloody Scotland

I’ve just spent two nights interviewing William McILvanney at the National Library (Wednesday night) and Chris Broookmyre (last night) at the Mitchell Library for the Bloody Scotland sponsors Mazars. Two magic nights. I’d thoroughly recommend, if you’ve not done so, that you go and discover the Laidlaw trilogy by William and Chris’s latest book – Flesh Wounds. Looking forward to Bloody Scotland – Jo Nesbo just sold out. Great news as my panel was on at the same time so now you can’t see Jo you can see Gordon, Doug and me.

Reviews

Amazon can be a curse and a blessing – today it’s a blessing – reviews from Amazon for The Catalyst – and before you ask I don’t know who they are.
