Another first!

This Saturday, for the first time ever, I'll be reading a piece of fiction written by me to the general public in a bookshop in Hong Kong. Let me explain. 


Every year The Hong Kong Writers Circle put together an anthology. The 2011 anthology, As We See It: Hong Kong stories, was published at the end of 2011 and is available to buy in selected bookshops in Hong Kong, and as an e-book through Amazon UK or Amazon US. To promote the book a few of the authors will be reading their stories, or extracts from longer pieces of work they currently have available.  There will be drinks available and authors won't be reading the entire time, so it's a good opportunity to have a chat and meet some new people. If you fancy coming along, please do!






The event, as promoted by Time Out magazine, will be taking place:


I'm just a little nervous (= a lot!) so I'll let you know how it goes!
