Wiz, being of quite advanced years, is unable to continue illustrating. I've decided to complete writing all four books in the Sven Kingdoms trilogy and launch them all as a series hopefully by xmas (without illustrations). Am just deciding if Edna really ... and will Myrtle? ... and surely Yoozurp doesn't ...
28th January 2020 - Book launch at Waterstones, Canterbury.
Thanks to all who came, we had fun. I loved it, looking forward to more events. I began and ended by playing some Genuine Kentish Blues (why not!) and did a slide show and readings, explaining how the book evolved, and how Linton Kwesi Johnson helped me turn from a shy child into a writing and guitar playing black sheep of the family!
Here's a review of it:
Sat 22nd February. I appeared at The Faversham Literary Festival
Sat 7th March both Wiz (briefly) and myself were at The Deal Bookshop to chat, sign books and generally make a nuisance of ourselves. One lucky girl from Devon now has the only copy signed by the great Wiz!
