While final proofs of DARKER ENDS are being prepared, I’m excited about the fact that the book will be launched not only in Edinburgh, but also in Glasgow for which I have a very soft spot. When my first book CHILL won the Scottish Children’s Book Award in 2007, I was asked to speak to a large audience at the AyeWrite Festival by popular demand – from those who mattered i.e. Glasgow school-children. I was very nervous as it was one of my first big audiences as a public speaker. It was in the Mitchell Library, a huge and interesting building (with its own rumours of ghosts) which you whizz past on the M8 if you’re cutting through Glasgow. It seems that DARKER ENDS (set in Glencoe) will have a launch at the Mitchell during Book Week Scotland.

Why stop at one launch? Why not three? And at one of them I’m going to endeavour to have cake with a book cover icing of DARKER ENDS, so that people can eat their way through the atmospheric shadows and darkening mood… hopefully it won’t give them indigestion.
