A month to go!

Hello, everyone!

It's been a long time coming, but be guid tae yer mammy will finally be released next month (albeit not in the way I'd have planned thanks to Covid). I am super excited, but also quite nervous too! 

There are lots of exciting things happening in the lead-up to the launch, which will be hosted over Zoom by the Scots Language Centre - so no matter where you are, you're more than welcome to come along.

First off, my latest Scots short story, Billy's Ghost Dug, is going to be performed by the wonderful Liar's League on the 14th of April, and I'll provide further details about that in due course.

But most excitingly of all, the novella I was commissioned to write by the Scots Language Cente is being released at the end of April, so it's a bit of a double whammy for me over the next two months!

The novella was designed to encourage literacy in Scots. It's called the tongue she speaks, and it's being illustrated by the amazing Jo Whitby, who previously worked with Chris McQueer to create the fabulous Spirits of Glasgow book. 

I can't wait to share all of the above with you all, and hopefully, it gives you a wee laugh as the world starts to return to normal!

Best wishes,
