I have some good news!
I’m back on the road again to celebrate three centenaries in my novel:
Ancasta Guide me Swiftly Home
I wrote about the first centenary, RNAS Calshot in March 1913, in my last post and so to celebrate a year of centenaries leading into 2014 and the big event to commemorate the Great War I have organised various events and these are the ones confirmed so far:
I am really pleased to launch my tour at the very heart of my novel, where the story began on the banks of the River Itchen:
16th March 2013 Above Bar Waterstones Southampton 12pm to 2pm
Then I will be popping in to say hello at The Yacht Tavern, Woolston to have a chat, answer questions and sign copies:
16th March 2013 The Yacht Tavern Woolston after 2.15pm
(dependent on the football traffic!)
The following week I am at St Neots, closer to home, where the history of aviation is hugely important, with Duxford and Shuttleworth not far away:
23rd March 2013 St Neot’s Waterstones from 11am to 2pm
Then in October I will be even closer to home in Hitchen, but this time I will be giving a talk in the evening about my novels and how the history of aviation, early flying boats, Supermarine, sea planes and sea plane carriers into WW1 influenced my writing. With Shuttleworth just up the road, it should be a good night. Refreshments available!
Thursday 3rd October 2013 at Hitchen Waterstones at 7pm
Then I will conclude my tour back in Southampton, where it all began!
Saturday 12th October 2013 at Waterstones West Quay Southampton 11am to 2pm
More venues in the pipeline to be confirmed.
