I’ve been on the look out for photos of my book ‘in the wild’ so to speak – but this has to be one of my favourites:
OffMyTrolley's shot of Out of a Clear Sky
It comes from OffMyTrolley’s Blog – she’s a library assistant in Derbyshire who’s posting a book review a week on her blog – well worth checking out during this national Year of Reading.
And here’s what she’s got to say about Out of a Clear Sky:
You don’t need to be Bill Oddie to enjoy this, but it could turn you into a twitcher!
Don’t say you haven’t been warned…

Well, my virtual tour has been somewhat delayed recently, due to real life intervening both for me and some of my tour-ees. But fortunately Nik Perring has stepped into the breach – he found the book via Roger Morris’s interview in Vulpes Libris and wrote a very kind review of it here – and has now posted an interview with me here. Please check it out, and the rest of his blog too – he’s a writer and a poet himself and has some good stuff to say … not to mention his excellent taste in books.

I didn’t see this yesterday, but thanks to Sophie from Macmillan, I got the clipping today – a nice review from the Mail on Sunday under ‘First Novels’ alongside Mohammed Hanif‘s A Case of Exploding Mangoes – I’m in good company there.
As charming as it is engrossing
I can’t find a link online, so you’ll just have to trust me that I was described as having ‘a keen sense of the macabre’ and (best of all) ‘a formidable knowledge of birds’.

I’m not sure when this came out – I only google myself every so often, honest – but I just stumbled upon this thoughtful, if not ecstatic, review by Ruth Price on Bookbag.
She succeeds in making the world of avid twitchers sexy
Now there’s an achievement…
