The short talk and book signing at Waterstones Warrington went incredibly well – many thanks to all who attended (about 75 of you!), Waterstones staff for staying open extra late to handle sales (and selling ALL the copies), The Village Café for providing such a sumptuous spread, and my husband for recording the talk. Here’s a link for those of you who want a wee look – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foYkXoP3n6k
Due to the success of this talk and signing, there’ll be another signing at Waterstones Warrington, in Golden Square Shopping Centre, on Saturday 1st March from 1pm onwards. I’ll be there with cake, bone dominoes, a fat stack of books and a pen. I’m happy to answer questions and chat about the people on the wreck, so do feel free to stop by.

Before that, I’m in Scotland doing a talk and book signing in Waterstones Argyle Street, Glasgow, on Wednesday 19th February at 7pm. Do come along for the books, the cake, and the craic! – http://www.whatsonglasgow.co.uk/event/006610-book-signing-and-talk-on-the-sinking-of-rms-tayleur:-the-lost-story-of-the-victorian-titanic/
I’m also doing a workshop in conjunction with Wire Writers’ Group on research and writing nonfiction at the Pyramid, Warrington, as part of the Warrington Literary Festival in April. Further details will be posted soon.
If you have any questions about the book, the events, or whether I like Nutella (hint: yes, yes I do), then please find me on twitter as @GillHoffs or email me at gillhoffs[at]hotmail.co.uk
