Announcing Charlaine Harris’ UK Tour!

Feeling down in the dumps now that the excitement of Loncon3 is officially over? Well, don’t be. There’s much more to look forward to in the next fortnight…

The queen of dark fantasy herself, Ms. Charlaine Harris, will be landing in London on the 30th of August 2014.

Charlaine Harris will be embarking on a UK tour (31st August – 5th September) to discuss and sign copies of the first book of her brand new series MIDNIGHT CROSSROAD (published in March 2014).  During her visit to the UK, she will also be attending the British Fantasy Convention, (Fantasycon 2014, 5 – 7th September, York) as the Author Guest of Honour!

The Sunday Times Bestselling author’s UK tour will commence with a lunchtime signing at Forbidden Planet London on the 31st of September. We’ll then travel to the Midlands (Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool), the North East of England (Newcastle, York) and Scotland (Edinburgh) before returning to York for Fantasycon 2014. Please see the full list of times and locations listed below.

Charlaine and I very much hope to see you at one of the events below.

Sophie joined Gollancz as Publicity Manager in the waning months of 2013. Following her degrees in Twentieth Century English Literature and brief flirtations with bookselling, Sophie became a dab hand at publicising SFF novels while handling the PR activity for Titan Books (2009 - 2013). Spending her formative years devouring Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Deep Space Nine and SG1, Sophie's literary tastes have always gravitated towards the speculative and fantastical. When she's not attending books events or cultivating killer blog tours, Sophie spends her time training for international marathons, canal boating in France, whipping up Asian-inspired feasts (she's addicted to curries) and visiting her home town of Totnes; the patchouli scented Devonshire town once named as "the capital of new age chic" by Time Magazine.
