Nestling itself neatly after everyone starts arriving, and before the opening party, if you’re in Harrogate from Thursday check out the latest in the Noir At The Bar Franchise. It’s showcasing some great authors, plus you’ll get the chance to meet me! I’ll be hanging suspiciously around the bar…..
It’s been two years (to the day) since my Harrogate proposal at the end of Steve Mosby’s panel in 2014, so that must mean we are into the final few days of this years countdown….
Time to get excited.
