Events

During the course of each year, Graeme is involved in a variety of events. These vary from talks and book signings to literary festivals he’ll attend – either as a speaker or delegate – and more informal gatherings of authors and book bloggers. If it’s possible for you to be there yourself, he’d be delighted to meet you and talk all manner of things bookish – and sometimes just all manner of things.

The following is a list of the events he is currently due to attend. It includes dates, details of the venue, and whether it’s open to all – and, if not, who is eligible to go. Where tickets are required, details of how to get them are given.

This list will be updated on a regular basis, so do keep checking.

Thursday 7th July - Sunday 10th July - Newark Book Festival

Specific dates and activities are yet to be confirmed, but Graeme will be in attendance at least one day during the festival. Once the programme has been finalised, this section will be updated. In the meantime, if you want to know more about the Festival, check out their website.

Thursday 21st July - Sunday 24th July - Harrogate Crime Festival

The Harrogate Crime Festival is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) events in the calendar for those serious about crime fiction. Readers, authors, publishers and anyone else with a vague link to this genre tend to show up. With guest speakers that have included the greats – James Patterson, Lee Child, Ian Rankin, Harlan Coben are only a handful of the high profile authors who’ve appeared in recent years – and a range of other events across the four days, this festival is a must for crime fans.

In spite of not having published any crime fiction yet, Graeme is a big fan and expects to put that right before too long. Specific dates have yet to be confirmed, but Graeme will be in attendance over at least two days during the festival, and is looking forward to catching up with old friends and hoping to make new ones.
