The Winter Passing at Geek Girl Brunch Nottingham

Eggs Royale at Geek Girl Brunch NottinghamIt’s with absolute delight, and utter terror, that I announce I’ll be reading from The Winter Passing at the next Geek Girl Brunch Nottingham on 17 October 2015.

Geek Girl Brunch is an international network of in-real-life meet ups that “hope to create a safe environment where identifying geek girls can be themselves to give voice, network, create friendships, inspire each other and hang out!” They say Geek Girl Brunches begin with  “kindness, tolerance, acceptance and empathy” which makes it my kind of place.

I went along to the inaugural Nottingham chapter meet up in August as The Other I and blogged about it over here.

The second meet up will be held on 17 October and will have a literary theme. Brunchettes are invited to represent their favourite literary character, author or book in a way of their choosing – it could be full cosplay or it could be a t-shirt.

And it’s an honour that the founder of the Nottingham GGB and one of my beta readers, Kelly Race, has invited me to share a chapter or two of The Winter Passing at the meet-up.

This will be the first time I’ve read any of my novel aloud, and the first time it will have been heard by people outside of my beta reading group and the publishing panels it went to over the summer.

It’s really exciting – and really scary too. I’m looking forward to seeing lots of you there!
