Just before the launch of PERFIDITAS on 6 November at Waterstones Tunbridge Wells, I went back into the Radio Kent studies to talk to Pat Marsh again. Very relaxed and friendly, it was like popping round for a friendly chat.
And here’s our interview/chat…
On the radio!
On 13 August, Pat Marsh, from BBC Radio Kent invited me on to his afternoon radio show and let me burble on about INCEPTIO. Radio Kent is said to have around 200,000 listeners, a figure I didn’t pin down until afterwards. I think I might have been a little more nervous if I’d known.
And you can listen to the interview here!
A fab report in ROYAL magazine of the INCEPTIO launch at Waterstones Tunbridge Wells. What a superb write-up. And yes, we had fun! Deepest thanks to Sarah Bond who wrote it, Gaynor Edwards who masterminded the PR for the evening and the Kent & Sussex Courier ROYAL team for the beautiful production. And to Steve Morton, of course, who took some of the photos.

I was thrilled to have a 3-page spread about alternate history in the UK’s premier writers’ monthly “Writing Magazine” (July 2013 issue).
On 1 May 2013, Gaynor Edwards from Ozone Creative, a sparkly new agency, emailed me the link to SO Magazine’s Social Register in the May edition (middle of right-hand column):
The West Kent weekly newspaper, The Kent and Sussex Courier gave me a few column inches (and set the whole book in America instead of Roma Nova – love the Courier!)
Local Tunbridge Wells lifestyle magazine SO Magazine included me in their Culture Vulture section in April
Before the UK launch, local Tunbridge Wells magazine StayingInGoingOut, known as StayGo, ran a half page on INCEPTIO in their March edition. Fabulous!
Le Courrier de l’Ouest which covers the French departments of Deux-Sévres 79 (where I live) and Maine-et-Loire 49 (Angers/Saumur) did a feature about INCEPTIO and the French launch on 1 March.
