Thicker Than Water: dates for the diary

Cam Cope:Steaphan Paton's Wallung Githa Unsettled series4

Since I last wrote, Thicker Than Water has made a few more appearances in the media. I was ecstatic to see it featured in the Guardian’s ‘Best books of summer 2016’, selected by the brilliant writer Reni Eddo-Lodge. It has also appeared in The Economist and The Week, as well as being chosen as BBC Radio nan Gaidheal’s book of the month (Leugh an Leabhar). Short extracts have also run in the Scotland on Sunday and the Metro.

Over the coming, I’ll be doing some more book-related events, which I detail below. Maybe I’ll see you there!
