What’s happened in April?
On Tuesday April 26th my daughter and I had a day out in London specifically so I could attend my first Rooftop Book Club held at Carmelite House on the Victoria Embankment. It was a crime panel this time hosting Claire McGowan, Ellie Griffiths and JS Law discussing place and character, followed by Sarah Hilary, Janet Ellis and Antonia Hodgson discussing London and present. For £10 you had these 2 great panels, drinks, delish nibbles and a goody tote bag with 4 proofs. It was a fab evening and well worth making the trip. If you get the chance to go, you won’t be disappointed.
Then….on Saturday 30th I went off to Birmingham to another blogger / author meet up hosted by Kim the Bookworm. Another well attended event so we were packed in like sardines but I still managed to chat to quite a few people…Mark West, David Videcette, Elaina James, Helen Barrell, Bookaholic Holly, Jane Isaac, Holly Martin and of course my book partner in crime Claire, to name but a few (apologies if I’ve missed anyone in particular). Do come next time, they’re always such good fun!
