Last Sunday, Arcane Publishing and Matt ArtPix were trading at the huge Antiques and Collectors fair at Alexandra Palace. The quality of items on display from all the traders was staggering. Such a gorgeous fair!
I also had a chat with the lovely Michelle from Fairground Fables. Check out her website, her art is really quite special!
We will be visiting her stall at the Pop-Up Vintage Fair at Old Spitalfields on 20th December.
This Saturday, I will be doing two local events - the last for me this year.
First I will be at the lovely indie bookshop The Bookshop Experience, 307 London Road,SS0 8BX, Westcliff-on-Sea.
Book signing (I Am a Muse and The Book of Thoth are on sale in the shop!)
Then a short (less than 10mn) walk to nearby Halmlet Court Road for an evening of poetry and prose.
I will be reading an extract of my first novel I Am a Muse at WOA Gallery in Westcliff-on-Sea. This is a poetry evening, so I will start with the short poem that opens the book and then move on to an extract in which Alda talks about what it was like to be her husband's muse for so long.
The readings will take place between 6pm and 8pm.
For 2015, I intend to work hard on rising awareness of Arcane Publishing, mostly in London. I am working on some sort of calendar to trade regularly at Old Spitalfields in London.
At the beginning, I will be trading with Matt ArtPix at the weekend, maybe every two months or even every month. We need to get organised.
I am also thinking about doing a solo stall on Wednesdays - stalls are much cheaper. I just need to get the logistics and budget right.
The Christmas holidays will be working holidays!
In January, I will also start writing The Right Place, my third novel.
I am almost done with the planning and plotting. There is still some (a lot of) research to do and I still need to find some kind of accommodation in Dorset to write, but I think I should really get started. I also need to plan for my second meeting with Unbound in March. If everything goes to plan, Arcane could become one of their guest publishers... Watch this space!
I think therefore I write.
