On Saturday, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Worcestershire Literary Festival. It was especially exciting to travel to Worcester because I studied English Literature at the university there.
The lovely venue had sweeping steps, grand columns and fine portraits – very fitting for my talk about Jane Austen.
The audience was lovely and there were plenty of questions afterwards.
It was then on to Waterstone’s to sign some books. I was made so welcome by the staff there (thank you, lovely Cara!) and I have never seen so many of my books together before!
My books were in very good company too with Fiona Walker, Lucy Worsley and Dom Joly already having signed copies on display.
It was a lovely day and a real pleasure to meet Glenn and Angela James who run G & A Presents. If you’re in the Worcester area, take a look at their website. They have some fabulous events planned including a Gothic & Horror Festival. Wish I lived closer!
