Events: Meet Alyxandra Harvey!

Hi everybody, hope you're all doing well on this fine Tuesday afternoon and the sun is shining wherever you are :).

A little while ago I posted about Alyxandra Harvey's upcoming novel, Haunting Violet, which I'm ridiculously excited about. If you haven't heard much about it yet then check out the summary below but if it's already on your radar I expect you're excited too - it sounds great, right?

Well, luckily for us Brits, Alyxandra is coming over and hosting three events in May, so if you're in the area definitely try to make it to one of them - and if you're there on the 24th maybe we'll bump into each other!

Tuesday, May 24th (7pm):

Talk and signing at Waterstone's Piccadilly, London

Wednesday, May 25th (4.30pm):

Haunting Violet signing at Waterstone's, Bath (BATH!!! That is where I live! Scratch what I said earlier, looks like I'll be there on the 24th AND 25th!)

Saturday, May 28th (11.30am):

Hay Festival event with Marcus Sedgwick



Summary (from Goodreads): Violet Willoughby doesn't believe in ghosts. But they believe in her. After spending years participating in her mother's elaborate ruse as a fraudulent medium, Violet is about as skeptical as they come in all matters supernatural.

Now that she is being visited by a very persistent ghost, one who suffered a violent death, Violet can no longer ignore her unique ability. She must figure out what this ghost is trying to communicate, and quickly because the killer is still on the loose.
Afraid of ruining her chance to escape her mother's scheming through an advantageous marriage, Violet must keep her ability secret.

The only person who can help her is Colin, a friend she's known since childhood, and whom she has grown to love. He understands the true Violet, but helping her on this path means they might never be together. Can Violet find a way to help this ghost without ruining her own chance at a future free of lies?
