This weekend sees the Appledore Book Festival in north Devon. 

For a relatively new one, it's already secured an excellent reputation.  Appledore is a wonderful place, the people are amazingly friendly and there are some great hostelries to eat and drink.

Thus, I'm very much looking forward to my visit!

If you fancy coming along, I'm performing at 6pm on the Friday (2nd October), and will be talking about The Judgement Book, along with an update on plans for the new tvdetective books for next year.

I imagine I'll probably come out with some of the usual oddball anecdotes too, if pushed... go on, you know you love them!
