The Book Festival Fringe at St Andrew’s and St George’s West (and me!)

Last night I went to see Rubies in the Attic* with some of my pals. While chatting in the queue, as you do, Helen (one of my pals) showed me the above pic on her phone. It is of the big screen at Festival Square in the middle of Edinburgh and there I am on the front of the St Andrews and St George’s West at  Festival time 2012 programme. Yeh hey!  In fact, tomorrow is the day for my book event at the festival: between 2 and 3.30 I’ll be talking about the inspiration behind the writing of  The Blue Suitcase at St Andrew’s and St George’s West Shandwick Place building, 58 Shandwick Place!  I’m really looking forward to it 🙂 If you come along, do say hello afterwards!  I’ll let you know how it goes in my next post – and give you an update on the 5 minute/5 questions interviews I’ll be doing next week at the EIBF!!

PS: Rubies in the Attic was brilliant!  I found out about the show from A Summer Full of Peaches’ blog post. If you are in Edinburgh this month and want something to see, do check this out. Next on our list is Tourist in Residence Anthony Shrag – part of the Edinburgh Festival of Arts. I heard about him from  Kate Adamson‘s blog.  We also plan to see Nina Conte – i just heard about her by word of mouth. Has anyone seen either Nina Conte or Anthony Shrag? Be great to know what you think?
