category_diary80It’s less than a month until Bone by Bone is published! And if you’re in Bristol, do come to the book launch.

It’s going to be at Waterstones, The Galleries at 7pm, Friday 4 March. I’m delighted we’re going to serve prosecco and Wiper and True beer provided by our local vintner, Grape and Grind, plus a Bone by Bone inspired cake by cake artist Tamarind Galliford of Ahh Toots! based in St Nicholas’ Market. My friend, Ingrid Bates, is donating a couple of bottles of her delicious rosé from her own vineyard (how cool is that!) Dunleavy Vineyards, for a lucky few to sample!
