And we'll also be appearing at Manchester Children's Book Festival on June 28th. Sarah's Sea Monkeys crop up all over the festival website, and there's even going to be a Grand Parade of Seawigs. I'm not entirely sure, but I think this might be the last completely Seawigs-themed event we do before we switch into Cakes in Space mode for the late summer and autumn festivals. So if you're in or near Manchester, do come along! (There are loads of other things going on in the festival, too.)
Lastly but definitely not leastly, Tim Knight (who runs ace gaming/comics/TV/general geekery blog Heropress and has been a great supporter of my books over the years) will be doing a sponsored walk next weekend to raise money for the Stroke Association. Tim's wife Rachel gives a sobering account of some of his reasons for doing so here. If you'd like to contribute, donations can be made here. Best wishes on the walk, Tim, from all Goblins, Sea Monkeys, Traction Citizens, and me.
