Last night I was at the brilliant Novel Nights event in a packed room at the Lansdown in Clifton, Bristol.
Nathan Filer author of the Costa winning The shock of the fall was the guest of honour who spoke about plot and character, read a small excerpt from the book and genially answered the many questions from the room. As a bonus I won a copy of the book by knowing that Iain Baks's first novel was The Wasp Factory.
In the second half were six readers and we were treated to foul breathed detectives, crazy South American pilots and much more.

Next month will be "Comedy & YA" themed so make sure to get your tickets early.
