March UK tour

January 27, 2010 at 18:07 (1)

I’m going to be doing a short tour in the UK in March to promote the release of my third book for adults, City of the Snakes, along with the re-release of my first two adult-aimed books (Procession of the Dead and Hell’s Horizon) under the Darren Shan banner — they were previously released under the name of D B Shan. This will be the first time I have toured with my adult books, and the first time I will have ever read any extracts from them. You can find the schedule below — we are hoping to add a few informal signing events to it in a couple of other places, so I’ll update it once those have been confirmed. Please note, the events are NOT recommended for children. While I will, of course, be happy to sign copies of my children’s books if people bring them along, the events will focus on my adult books, and will feature readings which might include swear words and sexual references. Now, I’m not going to be a hypcrite about this — I was reading Stephen King books when I was 10 or 11 years old!!! So if parents wish to bring children along, or teenagers wish to come by themselves, that’s their choice — we’re not going to turn anyone away. Just please be aware that these won’t be the same as my regular events, and things might get saucy at times!!!!

Wednesday, March 3rd — 6.30pm — public event at Waterstones Cardiff, 2A The Hayes, Cardiff CF10 1WB.

Thursday, March 4th — 6.30pm — public event at Waterstones Bath, 4-5 Milsom Street, Bath BA1DA.

Friday, March 5th — time TBC — public signing at Waterstones Exeter, address TBC.

Friday, March 5th — 6.30pm — public event at Waterstones Truro, 11 Boscawen Street, Truro TR1 2QU.

The events will run for approximately one hour each, and I will be signing afterwards. As usual, I will be happy to sign as many books as fans wish to bring along, so do feel free to bring all your back catalogue of Darren Shan books if you wish!!

    Just got my advance copy of the new book today. I have being waiting for a few years for this. For anybody who has not read the first two then you just have to get them. Easily the best books I have read. Paul
