Tune in to Leith FM on Sunday night to hear me chatting with Laura Kerr about Trackman and playing music featured in the book. I might read an extract too if I can find something suitable with no swearing in it!
It all starts at 10pm and you can listen online here – Leith FM
I’ll be in Waterstones on Princes Street in Edinburgh this Saturday (18th), signing copies of Trackman.
I’ll be there from 12 – 1pm. Please come and say hello, otherwise I’ll be forced to accost unwitting shoppers instead.
Phew, well it’s been an exciting week. I had the official Trackman launch on Wednesday evening at Blackwell’s. I was very nervous beforehand (especially when I arrived early and saw all the empty seats) but I really enjoyed myself. Thanks to James Anderson of Blackwell’s for engaging me in conversation about the book and for helping to make the launch such a success. I was really grateful for all the support I got on the night. Thanks to everyone for their good wishes and to those who made it along, thanks so much for turning empty seats into people!
Fast forward to today and I have my first official review in The Herald. They’ve even made Trackman paperback of the week which is overwhelming. So, wow, I’m really happy that people seem to like the book so far.
I’ve posted a copy of the Herald review below but here’s a link to the online version too:
Trackman will be officially launched at Blackwell’s, South Bridge, Edinburgh on Wednesday 8th February at 6.30pm. Please come along and hear me reading and talking about the book. You can also get £2 off if you want to buy Trackman and I will be signing copies for anyone who wants my squiggle messing up their book!
Here’s me posing with Trackman in the style of a footballer advertising their autobiography (that’s what the very nice photographer told me the pose was).
So, I spent yesterday lunchtime getting my photo taken up Blackford Hill for The Evening News. They’ve done a nice wee feature on me and the book today which is good. Here it is below, with me looking slightly windswept!
Exciting news! Blackwell’s Bookshop on South Bridge have kindly decided to make Trackman their February book of the month. This means that not only will it be displayed in the shop, but it will also be discounted so you can get it with £2 off the usual price. So what are you waiting for… well apart from February of course!
And as February is a leap year, I get a whole extra day on display!
So here it is! My novel, Trackman, in actual book form. A launch event is booked for Wednesday 8th February at Blackwells Books, Edinburgh. Details will be posted here soon!
Available to buy here later this week.
It’s all very surreal but in a good way!
