cuteness overload in coventry with alex t. smith

Today I went up to Coventry for another storming pirate event, this time for the city's very first literary festival, Literally Coventry. And one of the main planners was Sian Smith, Alex T. Smith's mum! I met Alex for the first time at the Edinburgh book fest two years ago but while we've chatted away on Twitter, we'd never managed to meet up again. So I was excited when I found out we had events on the same day. Here's Alex at lunch with Claude (who is a dog) and Sir Bobblysock (who is a sock).

elcaf this weekend!

I really want to go to ELCAF this weekend, it's going to be amazing. I'm not absolutely sure if I'll be able to, just because of crazy work schedule, but if you want to pick up amazing indie books, comics and craft creations (affordable handmade stuff, great for gifts!), and hear fascinating talks, head over to East London this Sunday.
