I can’t actually believe that the ‘Debut Night’ of Bookmarked is going to be actually happening in just 7 days. I am getting very excited but also slightly nervous. When I first mentioned it on the blog it seemed that the actual night was a million miles away, now it is just a mere week away. Eek.
This of course means
panic planning is now in full flow. We have the lovely authors Sarah Winman and SJ Watson, we have the venue, we hopefully have posters and flyers up there and should you walk through Waterstones Deansgate you will be inundated with multiple subliminal and blatant messages of our impending first night. If not then there will be tears before the weekend. Anyway, it’s meant some additional re-reading has been in order (I have just re-read ‘Gillespie and I’ and ‘The Observations’ by Jane Harris to write the Reading Guides) with post it’s, pen – nothing can beat a simple Bic – and a lovely new Black n’ Red notebook at the ready…
So now all I have to do is think about what to ask the lovely Sarah Winman (I am also listening to her read her book whilst I wander round the supermarket/library/clean the house) and SJ Watson, I have lots and lots of things I am dying to grill them about, its simply simplifying them and leaving stuff to my co-host Adam to the lovely audience to ask too.
What have you always wanted to ask an author? What would you ask Sarah Winman or SJ Watson if you could, let me know and I will mention your question specifically? Will any of you be coming to Bookmarked so I can make sure I say hello?
