This week, Libraries NI are celebrating Book Week by promoting a love of reading, in partnership with BBC Northern Ireland. Events will be running all week from Monday 17th to Sunday 23rd October.
While I stopped by Belfast Central Library on Monday to return some books, I decided to check in on my own novels, only to find out that they had all been borrowed! I’m delighted that people are borrowing and reading my books. Luckily for me, I always carry first chapter samples of my work, as you never know when a promotional opportunity might arise. Thanks to one of the lovely library staff for taking this photo next to the Halloween display.
It has been a busy week for me. I have also had another promotional library event with a book signing for The Blue Man in the run up to Halloween. It turned out to be quite atmospheric too with the rain drumming on the stained glass windows of the beautiful, historic library – perfect for a horror novel.
