Show Time!

It's publication week for The Herbalist, so I'll be out and about doing a bit of chin wagging. Just click on the links (in colour) to find out more...  

Interviews...
My interview with Miriam O Callaghan on the John Murray Show can be listened to HERE
My interview on Writing.ie can be read HERE

Good Reviews...
I'm stunned by and grateful for the huge positive response to the book. The Herbalist was named Book Of The Week by Donal O Donaghue in the RTE Guide. Justine Mc Carthy, in the Sunday Times, called it a 'devilishly good debut novel.' Sinead Gleeson described it as 'sharply rendered and full of dark humour' in this Irish Times article.

Good News...
The Herbalist has been announced as the Board Gáis Energy Book Club Book Of The Month, you can find out more here

Next up: Tuesday 11th  - TV- Ireland: A.M. &  6.30pm (live from the launch) - Radio 103

The Blog Tour; is launched today in style by June Caldwell over at the Irish Writers Centre Blog

I'll be stopping at eight different writer's blogs over the coming weeks, and each will be asking me three questions about writing and the novel. I hope you find it interesting and feel free to leave comments or questions. I'll be filling you in on any interviews or readings over the next few days from this blog post, and then I'll be back to blogging as normal.
