Days 22 - 26: 1/4 Funded!

Wow! The past few days have certainly been eventful. The death of David Bowie was a shock. I don't normally shed tears for celebrities but I did for him because he was so much more than that - he was an artist and an inspiration to all. It's nice to see Unbound paying tribute too - check out their logo.

On a more upbeat note I read my short story, Inkling, to an audience - my first time performing on stage for 12 long years! It went very well and I am amazed and thrilled that my story is now in a book. It's a wee dream come true to be able to say that I am now officially a published writer. The launch of the book was great fun and everyone made me feel very welcome and some have even pledged their support for this very novel!

I will be doing a reading at Hillhead Library in Glasgow, probably in February - the exact date is to be confirmed. I may also be doing a reading in London with fellow author Jennie Ensor whose novel, Ghosts Of Chechnya can be found on this site - have a look - and pledge your support!

In addition to that I have another Glasgow reading planned but it's still at the early stages - I will keep you posted.

Other than that it's business as usual.

Thank you for your support.

And thank you to June Skewis, Nikk McCurdy, Martin McNee and Mick Clocherty, all of whom are the latest patrons to join my ever increasing list. Thanks to you A Murder Of Crows is now 1/4 funded which is amazing!

Best Wishes,
