I’m delighted to confirm that on Saturday 14th October (2023), I’ll be taking part in live event in Birmingham, called Meet The Time Travellers.
Alongside my fellow time travel authors, Jason Ayres, Adrian Cousins, and Adam Eccles, I’ll be discussing my books, characters, writing, and of course, time travel. The three-hour event will include a meet & greet, a Q&A session, and book signings.
Tickets will be limited so if you’d like to go straight ahead and book, click this link.
As this event has been mooted for a while, I thought it would a good idea to answer some of the common questions I’ve already been asked…
Q: Will you be repeating this event in… (insert your home town or city)?
I’ve been asked if the event will take place in every town and city from Perth to Penzance. Due to the cost, and the time it’s taken to organise, this is highly likely to be a one-off event. I am looking at a few low-key solo events next year, but that will depend on a number of factors (including demand).
Q: How much are tickets?
Just £7 each and that’s purely to cover the cost of the venue. The reason why this is a one-off event is because each of us is subsidising our own travel costs and accommodation. As it is, the total cost of the event will be north of £1,000. The maximum we’ll make from ticket sales might be £400’ish.
Q: Where is it being held?
We’ve hired a lovely room at The Midlands Arts Centre, with all mod cons. A bar serving drinks and light snacks will be open before the event and during the 30-minute interval. There’s also a couple of car parks near the venue.
Q: Will there be books available to buy?
In short – no. Between the four of of us, we’ve written around fifty books, and we’d need to bring six copies of each. As three of us will be making the journey to Birmingham using public transport, moving a few hundred books around just isn’t feasible. For that reason, if you’d like us to sign a book, please bring it with you and we’ll happily oblige.
Q: Will the event be recorded/streamed?
Alas not, because we just don’t have the budget to hire the required equipment and technician. It has been suggested that we simply use mobile phones to record it, but the sound quality would be appalling.
Q: I have another question – where can I ask it?
Feel free to drop me an email via the contact link at the top of the page.
Oh, if anyone is staying in Birmingham overnight and would like to join us for a few drinks after the event (in central Birmingham – venue TBC), you’d be very much welcome.
