My publicist, Mary, has been busy finalising details for my UK and Ireland tour to promote Brothers to the Death
. There are still some events which have yet to be confirmed, so make sure you check back next month for the full and final list, which should include several more school and public dates. But here's what we have pinned down so far. A public signing
is open to anyone who wants to come. A schools event
is for invited schools only. A public event
is open to anyone who wishes to attend, but tickets normally need to be reserved in advance -- you should always contact the organiser in advance to make sure that you will be able to get a ticket. Please note, I am always happy to sign as many of my books as fans wish to bring along from home or buy on the day.
