‘pop fiction: stories inspired by songs’ launch party!

24 Feb

if you are unfortunate enough to know me, you’ll have heard me banging on about pop fiction: stories inspired by songs a little too much over the last few months. even if you don’t know me, there’s a chance you know about the collection. after all, i did write about it in my very first post.

well, the plugging isn’t over yet. not quite.

the book’s outpop fiction launch party flyer, we’ve notched up a few sales, and it’s had a few reviews, too. most recently, the literateur gave us a lovely write- up, plus we’ve had some decent feedback from the likes of sabotage blog, booksquawk and it’s all happening.

and now, you lucky people, i’m pleased to announce that the launch party for pop fiction will take place on thursday 24th march, upstairs at the betsey trotwood, from 7.30pm.

the plan is that around five of the pop fiction contributors will read a story each, plus there will of course be some great music to fill the gaps in between.

come along if you can, it’s sure to be a great night, not least because the betsey is a great place for events such as this. i’m biased, though, as the pub’s located opposite the old guardian premises and was, therefore, essentially my local for quite a few years. the guardian’s moved, and i’ve moved on, yet i still can’t tear myself from this fine drinking establishment. it may have something to do with the draught asahi and endless variety of whiskies.

admission is free, but there’s limited space, so please rsvp at popfictioninfo@gmail.com

oh, and yes i will be reading. probably my “ingeniously post-Modernist spin on song interpretation itself”, ‘disney’s dream debased’, influenced by the song by the fall. what a treat.

an evening of words ‘n’ rock ‘n’ roll?

gig of the year, more like. and you’re invited.
