BIRDS OF THE NILE ebook now only £0.99p
Hello and welcome to my website.
It's the anniversary of the counter-revolution in Egypt. It's over three years since Mubarak was ousted and twelve months since his democratically elected successor, President Morsi, was deposed in an Army led coup. Egypt's been in turmoil ever since. In May the country elected a new President, the former General Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi. He's vowed to rid the country of the Muslim Brotherhood for good, so whatever else we can expect from this anniversary. it's unlikely to be sweetness and light. Violent protests are anticipated.
For the month of July, I'll be monitoring the situation closely and using my Writing Life page to keep you up to date with events. And to mark the occasion, the ebook version of my debut novel, BIRDS OF THE NILE. will be available for just £0.99p. Part political thriller, part love story, it's set against the background of the original revolution of 2011.
I'll still be running Book Talk. This is in conjunction with my regular spot on BBC Radio York where I join presenter Elly Fiorentini once a month to talk about the latest in books and to recommend some good reads. The show will next go out on Monday 11 August at 6.30pm. We'll be discussing books by two prize-winning women novelists, SEATING ARRANGEMENTS by Maggie Shipstead and A GIRL IS A HALF-FORMED THING by Eimear McBride. My written reviews of both books will shortly be available on the Book Talk page.
You can find out what else I'm up to on my Events page.
