Orla Melling (who wrote the magnificent Chronicles of Faerie) and I are booked for a discussion on faeries and allied topics at the Children's Books Ireland Summer School in Belvedere College. Showtime is 12 noon on May 20, which is a Saturday.
I'm hugely looking forward to meeting Orla again, but that's not the reason for this post. Just had word that Faber, who publish my non-fiction children's books, have brought forward publication date of the second volume of my Forbidden Truths series (Time Travel) from June to May 18 so those attending the school will have an opportunity to read it. Nice bit of marketing there, following hard on the heels of the series launch with Atlantis and Other Lost Civilizations, which seems to have taken off gratifyingly quickly.
