A joy spending a short while with Nathan Englander at #edbookfest this year. Here he is here, with some ugly bloke

Less than 2 hours until a certain couple of #shortstory writers are on at #edbookfest. Who? Here's a clue -

Krys Lee, described as one of the rising stars of American literature, being interviewed at #edbookfest

Sarah and Tessa sharing a moment at the #edbookfest signing table -

and here at #edbookfest , is the equally lovely Tessa Hadley -

Here's Sarah Hall at #edbookfest. Doesn't she look lovely and summery?

The free coffee is excellent, and have you seen the size of the shortbread? :)

Here's Mary Mowat in her earlier #StoryShop slot, reminding us in The Trams, what a nightmare Edinburgh Tram Project is

Jacqueline Wilson looks VERY HAPPY to be at #edbookfest -

A very Scottish Peter Rabbit welcoming visitors to #edbookfest -

Yes, I did buy a 1930s(?) shooting stick at the weekend #AnotherCompletelyRandomPurchase

Look what I got this morning. It's a c.1900 travelling inkwell. What an object of indescribable beauty. So happy!

The #stefg12 anthology is in da house. Quite nice publication too. For £2.99 was expecting more booklet than book.

Good advice from Waterstones :)

Talking of #writingslopes and #writing and stuff, have you seen my wax seal? (that's 'B' for Burdock, my surname)
