Now that Blind Eye has hit the bookshelves like a drunken ex-boyfriend, I'm going to be hitting the road, pimping the books to anyone who'll listen. And apparently (according to HarperCollins) it might be a good idea to actually tell people where I'm going to be.
Never one to rock the boat, or fart in the bath, I have acquiesced to their demands and publish for you here the list of stuff what I'll be doing over the next couple of weeks (and yes, I have stolen the descriptions from the venues). Mostly it's going to be me rambling on about stuff, things, and anything else that takes my fancy. Including, but not restricted to, rude songs and Polish swearing.
I've been told that the gig in Piccadilly is likely to be ... challenging. Apparently it's really hard to get people to go along to hear a bearded Scottish idiot being incoherent for an hour and a half. So, if you're in the neighbourhood, please do come along and drag everyone you know with you. Otherwise I'm going to feel like a right bloody idiot.
No change there then.
