London Book Fair 2012

Excited to be joining the Authors Electric team. Will be blogging there once a month, kicking off soon with notes from the Fair. In the meantime, a few images.

The focus this year is China

Base Camp - English PEN Literary Cafe

 Good company. With wheelchair dancing star Diana Morgan-Hill and English PEN's Head of Programmes, Philip Cowell.

Tom Watson MP on his exposé of the News International phone hacking scandal - completely fascinating: Dial M For Murdoch (pub Allen Lane)

The English PEN Literary Cafe Where's Wally moment - spot the famous Booker-winning author.

Arvon  Foundation and The Literary Consultancy's Seminar on the role of the editor in digital age. Excellent panel, that's Blake Morrison speaking there. More on this soon.

Caitlin Moran talking about hairy armpits and ridiculously small knickers. Audience Q - has she ever thought of standing as an MP? - brought musings on standing against George Galloway dressed as Rula Lenska dressed a cat. DO IT!

Self-promo moment, organised by PR whizz E.

This was an interesting one - Has Anyone Spoken To The Author? Chaired by John Mitchinson of the fantastic UNBOUND.

The official programme. This came as a complete shock - on the digital page as well.  From last year's visit with my friend Writing Coach and author Jacqui Lofthouse. The first photo of myself wearing glasses I've ever seen.

Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.
