There’s just a few days to go until my nonfiction book, “The Sinking of RMS Tayleur: The Lost Story of the Victorian Titanic”, is published by Pen & Sword, and I’m totally hyped about it.
There will be a launch event at Waterstones in Warrington on Thursday 23rd January, 7-8pm. The bus station feeds into the Golden Square Shopping Centre where this Waterstones is located, and Warrington Central train station is just a few hundred yards away. There’s disabled access, plenty of parking, and since it’s late night opening for the shops on Thursdays there are plenty of places to nab a coffee or browse for bargains while you’re in. Everyone’s welcome, no ticket required, and as well as a talk on the Tayleur‘s origins in Warrington and links to Liverpool there will be cake and chocolate biscuits galore. Don’t forget to bring your points card and any book tokens you’ve been saving since Christmas!
Apart from that, there will be an event sometime in February in Warrington Museum itself, and others in Scotland and Ireland throughout the year – details will be listed here and on facebook and twitter as they become available, or you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you might have.
