It’s that time of the year when we are spoilt for choice with so many fabulous new books out. But it also means are a lot of brilliant authors hitting the road for talks and signings with booksellers displaying their true fan girl/boy status hoping to land their favourite authors. ‘Sepulchre’ has been one of my all time favourite books since I first read it five years ago (time-slip, nineteenth century french setting – what’s not to love?) so when I heard that author Kate Mosse was in the area signing stock, I was very excited! Although it was a very brief visit to sign copies of her new book ‘The Mistletoe Bride and Other Haunting Tales’ as well as her back catalogue, I’ve got to say, Kate was absolutley lovely and happy to chat all things book. We discussed how the Gothic Wool Exchange would be a perfect setting for a reading of her collection of atmospheric tales so fingers crossed we can persuade her to visit when the paperback is published this time next year. In the meantime, as we are days away from Halloween, why not pick up a signed copy of the gorgeously illustrated ‘Mistletoe Bride’? I’m racing through ‘The Boy in The Striped Pyjama’s’ to get to my copy!
