Bookstores, libraries, and coffee shops are the usual venues to listen to an author reading from and discussing a lastest work, perhaps with coffee and a muffin, or even over a nice cup of tea and a slice of hot buttered toast.
With such venues closed, due to the current catastophe, Rebecca Budd created a virtual space dedicated to writers and thinkers discussing their work and interests. Not though I have much of a claim to being either a writer or a thinker.
Yes, you are right. False modesty is simply an even more unattractive form of arrogance. I’ll shut my gob shall I?
Last week I was lucky enough to be Rebecca’s guest on her blog-cast Tea, Toast and Trivia. Here you will hear us discussing the thoughts behind three extracts from Jack Hughes and Thomas the Rhymer as well as listening to me read from the novel.
The extracts are:
The first half page of the novel
The point where Jack and his friends meet Thomas the Rhymer
The beginning of the novel’s climax within Queen Sylvie’s fairy kingdom

I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed talking to Rebecca
