Come and see me in March!

Hello hello,

I hope you are well.

I have loved launching Don't Hold My Head Down into the world. Particularly being a 'Number 1 best seller in sex' on Amazon, I may pop that on a business card. And MP Hannah Bardell telling everyone present to put it on their reading list during the recent debate on Sex and Relationship eductation in the House of Commons.

I have got quite a lot of talkies lined up for March and I wanted to tell you about them, in the hope you can pop along to one and say hello and let me thank you in person for your support of this project.

Here goes!

It will be an intimate, informal, bring a bottle chat at one of the most renowned bookshops in the country/world (where I have been BOOK OF THE MONTH in the social sciences dept!!) with myself and Robert Woodshaw.
