On publishing Eulogy, my first novel.

I started out with a few scribbles on a page eleven years ago, and the more I scribbled, the more intriguing the story became. I kept writing whenever I could in my spare time, and after many drafts and revisions the novel Eulogy emerged, published this year by Tightrope Books. I’ll be reading from the novel and telling a few tales from the eleven year experience of bringing it to publication. A great event for fiction readers and any aspiring author. Q&A and Book signing to follow. Free and open to the public.
