Summer Scream Event + Rachel Caine UK Tour!

First off, Rachel Caine is coming to the UK! Whoot! I am a big, big fan of her Morganville Vampires Series and really can't wait to meet her.

And where do I plan on doing that? At the Foyles' Summer Scream Event, of course! Not only is Rachel Caine going to be there, but so is Sarah Rees Brennan (who is AWESOME), Sarwat Chadda, Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams! There will be goodie bags! Prizes! Sugary snacks! Yay!

I have already booked my ticket (they are free, just need advance planning) - anyone else want to come along? Check out the website, or read the rest of the details here:

Do you have the courage to attend the Foyles Summer Scream? If so, you'll be in the company of a host of leading authors, and the recipient of all sorts of spooky treats!

Q&A sessions with:
  • The Original Vampire Queen - Rachel Caine, author of the Morganville Vampire series.
  • The man who survived The Devil's Kiss - Sarwat Chadda, with exclusive pre-publication copies of his new book Dark Goddess, only available at the Summer Scream.
  • The world-renowned Demon Tamer Extraordinaire - Sarah Rees Brennan, author of The Demon's Lexicon and The Demon's Covenant.
  • Subterranean explorers Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams - Bestselling authors of the hugely successful fantasy 'Tunnels' series will be talking about their new book Closer, followed by a signing (until 5pm).

Plus: secret scare recommendations from all your favourite authors - Michael Grant, Neil Gaiman, Justin Somper, Holly Black, Scott Westerfeld, Becca Fitzpatrick, Chris Priestley, Dan Wells, Jon Mayhew, Philip Womack, Patrick Ness, Darren Shan and many more!

And our chilling short story competition - your chance to finish off Cassandra Clare's short story and win a hamper of signed books!

All this and more competitions and prizes to be won on the day, plus vintage fairground treats and goody bags for all.

See you there... If you dare!

  1. I wish I could go to this! I'm already in London earlier that week though (for SRB's signing on the 15th), and go back home to Manchester on the 16th. Have a great time!

  2. Jenny - What a shame! It is such a trek from Manchester, though, I can't imagine you'd want to come back for it. I was thinking about going to the SRB movie thing but still haven't decided!

  3. If you decide to go to the Murder One event, let me know then I can say hi!

  4. Hi, just to say the Rachel Caine event at Church Street Library on 14th June is a closed event, it's for a school class only - apologies for any disappointment.

  5. Thanks for that! Will adjust accordingly.
