My appointment with a legend

Have you ever had one of those emails which you read, re-read, then read again, then have to read several more times because you don’t quite believe what you’ve just been told? I received one of those recently, and here’s the result:

On Monday 3rd, September, I’ll be at Waterstones Birmingham New Street where I’ll have the incredible honour of hosting James Herbert’s signing to mark the release of his hugely anticipated new novel, ASH. Mr Herbert will be reading from the book and answering questions.

I’m terrified and excited in equal measure. I grew up reading James Herbert novels, and I’ve cited DOMAIN in particular many, many times as one of the books which most influenced my work and, if I’m honest, one of the reasons I wanted to write horror in the first place. Tickets are £3 (redeemable against a copy of ASH) are available from the store or by calling 0843 2908151. A full report will follow the event.

A couple of other brief bits of news…

It’s Friday, so it’s another TRUST day – chapter 9 is now online. All pre-ordered copies of the TRUST limited edition hardcover have now been shipped. The price will be staying low for another week, so please click this link to order a copy. Alternatively, you can now order the book from eBay.

Have a good weekend!
