Bumped by Pam Ayres

The lovely (and always supportive) Cirencester branch of Waterstone’s were pleased to fix the date – 1st December – for the first signing event with The Subtle Thief of Youth. What better place for a Cotswold mystery than the Capital of the Cotswolds. Then, with great apologies, the gig was cancelled. The celebration of the refurbished store was to be headed by another – and possibly more humorous – writer, Pam Ayres, and not DJ Wiseman!

Short lived gloom, however, as we now get to celebrate the new-look store a week earlier on November 24th. There are certainly worse things in the world than being the warm-up act for the distinguished Ms Ayres.
