Meet the author (a video intro)

As part of the build-up to the upcoming book talks I have made a short ‘meet the author’ video (with huge thanks to Angus Macdonald for his filming and editing).

See the Events page for up-to-date information on the talks schedule. There should be opportunities to buy copies of the book (signed) at all events. Meanwhile, it can be obtained at good bookshops and via Amazon.

Book talks – schedule details

talksDetails of a series of talks promoting ‘It’s a hill’ are now being finalised. There are dates set for the Lakes, Scotland, Lancashire and Yorkshire. Any further information will be available on the Events page.

Wilfs, Staveley – Thu 20 March for a slide/supper evening. Fabulous food and venue (next door to the Hawkshead Brewery). Details and booking.

Carnethy Hill Running Club – Fri 21 March at Pi in the Sky, Edinburgh University, Kings Building campus. Possibly sharing a stage with Finlay Wild (Cuillin Ridge record holder).

Altrincham AC – Fri 4 April @Timperley Taverners, sharing the stage with Jeff Norman (Olympian and former Fell Runner of the Year). MC’d by Neil Walker.

Sheffield Adventure Film Festival – Sun 6 April @Showroom Cinema. A great gig. Programme includes other running-related films/talks, including Heather Dawe (Adventures in Mind) and Emma Clayton. Details.

There should be book signings at each event. Other events may be arranged, particularly one at Keswick AC in the summer, and hopefully a launch for the paperback edition when it comes out towards the latter part of this year.
