Righto, readers and fans (she says, optimistically) some news for the upcoming month of September:

Firstly, CE Murphy, novelist, comic book writer all round cool rock chick, will be doing a signing at Forbidden Planet in London, this month - naturally, as I am a squeeling fan, I will be there, trying to remember not to drool or spit. The date is the 18th September between 6 - 7. CEM has also updated her website, so why not check it out. This is the link. I will be trying to devastate her with my charm and drag her off to

Secondly, Peter Brett has posted a lovely post over at his site about his visit and his signing at FP. Read it here.

Thirdly, Suzanne McLeod's book has made it as a part of 3 for 2 deal at Waterstones so that is awesome news! And, what is always very sweet, to me personally, is that you can read, on the back of Sweet Scent of Blood, a quote from the review from MFB, which I did for Suzanne's book. I am totally blown away and am in fan-girl mode. I've gone and bought my copy to sit next to the ARC, and will have her sign both when I one day get to meet her in real life.

Fourthly, the tasty, shoe-loving and very talented Cassandra Clare will be coming to London to do research for some of her new books but because of fan pressure (tries to look innocent) she's agreed to do one signing only. It is to be at the fab Murder One book shop on Charing Cross Road and will be taking place on the 27th September at 5pm. Much hilarity will ensue, so do make an effort to swing by if you are in the area. And yes, again, I will be there!

Lastly, Dave Brendon's logged an interview with favourite Karen Miller over at his rapidly growing site. You can read the interview here.

Pleased that you found the quote Liz, its always cracking when you see something you've written appear on the back of a book. Will have to get mine signed by Suzanne as well, hopefully it won't be too long a wait.

Hey Liz, thanks for the link. :-) Listen, I've got to ask (and I don't care if this embaresses me): how do you link to somewhere without putting in the whole link, eg. 'here' instead of the whole link? I'm still a newbie. :-)

Hi Liz [and Gareth *waves*]

I'd be delighted to sign your books for both of you ;)[and meet you both!] Hopefully some time soon ;)

and thanks for the shout out, Liz!

Suzanne xx
