Bookmarked, Get Set, Go…

Well in the next few hours I will be an utter nervous wreck as I wait at the station to greet Sarah Winman and SJ Watson from the train, along with their lovely publicists, and we head for a drink. Yes it’s finally here (and scarily too soon), Bookmarked Literary Salon opens it’s doors tonight, sometime between 6.30 and 6.45pm.


I say I will be nervous but I already am. My heads full of the following… Are my questions too silly? Will the authors think I’m a loon? Will people enjoy themselves? Will anyone turn up?

Well not long to find out. Wish me lots of luck…and please feel free to let people know. I’ll report back, if I survive it, ha!

For more info do check here! Eek!

  1. Have a fantastic time, I’m looking forward to hearing all about it afterwards!

  2. Good luck! I really wish that I were able to attend this.

  3. I’m afraid I went to Manchester earlier than expected and actually came home yesterday. I’m sad I wont be able to make your first night, but hope that everything goes well. Good luck!

    It was a great event. Really enjoyed it. Thank you for organising it.

    I just discovered your blog today and have been reading your posts with interest. It’s a great read.

  5. I am sure you will rise to the occasion Simon.

  6. The debut night was great fun. Sarah Winman and SJ Watson were utterly engaging and I intend to make my copy of ‘Before I go to sleep’ just as well thumbed as ‘When God was a Rabbit’ !! Thanks very much for putting this on ..We need more of this in Manchester!(Rather than burning shops :-(…)

  7. What a good night – well done! I bet you’re glad it was yesterday and not today …

  8. I am glad that you timed it correctly.

    I am sad about the riots.

    Keep safe!

  9. Thank you all so much for your comments, support (and Manchester concerns afterwards) it meant a lot and am sure all the positive vibes you sent made it even more of a success. Can’t wait for the next one.
