Events and sundry

In the forthcoming days I will be appearing at a couple of events wearing (metaphorically) my author hat:

StokerCon 2021 – I’ll be doing an author reading (available on demand throughout the Con) and two panels:

May 21 4:00PM–4:50PM · Breakout Sessions

Panelists discuss how to use tone and setting to create suspense in their writing. I’m moderating this one.


May 21 7:00PM–7:50PM · Breakout Sessions

Dialogue: How it Can Make or Break a Story

Panelists discuss the importance of dialogue to craft an effective and meaningful story. Moderated by Meghan Arcuri.

Then a couple of weekends after I’ll be generally hanging about at Cymera where I’ll be moderating a panel on Spy fiction:

Pete Sutton has a not so secret lair in the wilds of Fishponds, Bristol and dreams up stories, many of which are about magpies. He's had stuff published, online and in book form, and currently has a pile of words that one day may possibly be a novel. He wrote all about Fishponds for the Naked Guide to Bristol and has made more money from non-fiction than he has from fiction and wonders if that means the gods of publishing are trying to tell him something. You can find him all over social media or worrying about events he’s organised at the Bristol Festival of Literature. On Twitter he’s @suttope and his Bristol Book Blog is here: He's contributing editor of Far Horizons e-magazine which can be found here:
