26 February 2018Book Launch for The Walrus Mutterer

My new historical novel, The Walrus Mutterer, the first of a trilogy called Stone Stories, will launch in March 2018 at an event in Lochinver.

The novel is set in the Iron Age, 320 BC, and the blurb on the back says. 'A visceral evocation of ancient folklore and ritual, The Walrus Mutterer is an epic tale that introduces an unforgettable cast of characters in an extraordinary, vividly imagined Celtic world.'

Everyone will be welcome at the launch in Lochinver, at 8pm on Monday 26 March. Come along to hear a sample, to toast the new book as it floats free of its moorings into the wide world in search of readers, and of course to get your signed copy!

Also reading that night, and talking about writing about the past, will be historical novelist Margaret Elphinstone and artist, writer and mariner, Ian Stephen.

It'll be a great night of stories and histories. Don't miss it!

I will be leading a masterclass in writing historical fiction as part of the Aye Write festival this year, on Saturday 17 March, 12-1.30 at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow. All welcome!

I'll also be reading from The Walrus Mutterer at the Ullapool Book Festival on Friday 11 May, at 11.30am, when there will be, incredible as it seems now, cherry blossom on the trees.
