A date for your diary - 12th March

Thursday 12th March (6pm - 7.30pm) myself and a few other authors from the Beautiful Books stable will be giving readings at an 'evening of literary splendour' at the fifteenth anniversary of The London Capital Club, 15 Abchurch Lane London, EC4N (Tel 0207 717 0088). If you want further info email me. Here's the blurb and info on the other authors:


Beautiful Books (www.beautiful-books.co.uk), the hottest new publishing firm in town, will be hosting the evening. Come and find out just what it takes to be a published writer. Meet and listen to:

James Woudhuysen, author of the hugely provocative and timely new study on the future of world energy, Energise!. Should the consumer bear the brunt of the demands of climate change, or should government and business work together to deliver an achievable aim: energy for all?

Belinda Webb, author of A Clockwork Apple, the brilliant feminist re-interpretation of Burgess's iconic novel. Belinda's novel featured as a question on University Challenge this month - come and put your questions to her directly!

Marina Fiorato, whose second novel, The Madonna of the Almonds, will charm members and their guests as much as her first, The Glassblower of Murano. This time, let Marina weave her spell about the pleasures and pitfalls of Lombardy.

Alex Burrett, whose surreal collection of short stories My Goat Ate Its Own Legs has just been sold to Harper Collins in New York, will pander to your dark side.

Simon Petherick, managing director and editor-in-chief of Beautiful Books, will act as MC for the evening, regaling you with amusing anecdotes past and present from the book trade, and also answer any of your questions about getting published.
