TERTULIA BOOKS, WESTPORT

I had a fab time at Westival in Westport, this weekend gone by. My event was hosted by the magical Tertulia Books, run by Bríd and Neil, and they gave me such a warm welcome to their beautiful shop and town. They are up for a book award at the APIBAS (as is NORA!), and you can vote for them here. Big thanks to the Tertulia crew, to the yoga boys for the gorgeous venue, and to Caroline Healy for the interview on the night.

NORA SHORTLISTED IRISH BOOK AWARDS

I’m delighted that Seán Rocks and the Arena crew have nominated NORA in the RTÉ Audience Choice Award at the An Post Irish Book Awards. As a big Arena fan, this is such an honour. I’m also honoured that NORA is the only novel on the shortlist.
