I’m on a five-week book tour that’s taking me to Denmark, the United Kingdom, France, the Czech Republic, and Ireland!
I’ve spent a lot of time in the U.K. these past few years since Traitor’s Blade was first published. The main reason for this is that both my main publishers (Bonnier and Quercus) are based in the London. Every time I come here I get to see a bit more of the city and the way it’s evolving as time goes by. Despite the multitude of transit options, I walk everywhere, which gives me plenty of opportunities to take in the sights. I’ll also be heading to Glasgow, Wigtown, Bath, and Cheltenham for various literary festivals.
I’d never been to Denmark until this year, and strangely this will be my second visit. In March I was in Aarhus for a couple of events, and in September I’ll be at the Esbjerg Fantasy Festival along with Patricia Briggs as guests of honour.
Next to the U.K., France is the country I’ve visited the most. Still, it’s always a thrill to go to Paris and this will be my first time meeting my delightful French publishers in person!
Prague will be an entirely new city for me, so that’ll be exciting, too. I’ve been to Ireland once before, but that was ages ago, so a visit to Dublin for DeptCon will be a terrific treat!
