Behind Criminal Minds Event at Waterstones Piccadilly, London and Competition #fridayreads #blackbird

Event: Behind Criminal Minds at Waterstones, Piccadilly, London on Wednesday, 16 July at 7pm. Details below for bookings.

Competition: Courtesy of those lovely people at Canongate, I have three pairs of tickets plus one copy of Tom Wright’s Blackbird with each pair to give away. You have all day Friday (today, British Summer Time) to tweet me your original and/or funny answer to the question how will you be able to tell when the authors have arrived in the building next week? Only replies/tweets with the #blackbird tag will be considered. I’ll decide and announce the winners tomorrow, so we can make arrangements for the tickets in time!
