Book Groups and Author Visits

Each week we have a book group on Thursdays. There are two slots: 10 am and 7 pm (GMT) and you’re very welcome to either, wherever you are in the world and however much you’d like to participate. Don’t forget to sign up!

I’ve started adding some links with the books to bookshop where US based participators can get paperback versions and support local bookshops.  Disclosure: I’ve added Amazon affiliate links to kindle editions for the US and England. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

We are having a hiatus in June to give me time to take a holiday. When we get back, we’ll be reading a selection of Scottish Gothic tales. I’ll be releasing audio versions as part of the June Romancing the Gothic passage (they are not copyrighted). Keep an eye peeled here as the names of the stories go up!

If you want to get started, you can start here with Walter Scott’s ‘Wandering Willie’s Tale’

This week we’re changing gears to read this haunting tale of ghosts and friendship by Hanna Alkaf.

Reimagining the Regency with renegade poets, vampires, no nonsense non-binary bad-asses and heroines with a mission. This week we’re reading ‘Bloodlust and Bonnets.’ One of my favourite combinations.

This week we’re reading Helen Oyeyemi’s story cycle ‘What is not yours is not yours’. The Gothic, the uncanny, the fairy-tale and the folkloric mix with fantastical drowned kingdoms and modern cities. Come join us!
