Nov 7th, Wednesday - Waterstones, Braehead. From 6pm. And its all about Blood Tears tonight.
Nov 9th, Friday - Song for Heroes at the Park Hotel in Kilmarnock. This is the final of the charity event for Help for Heroes where "7 FINALISTS TAKE TO THE STAGE IN FRONT OF OUR GUEST PANEL AND AUDIENCE TO WIN THE CHANCE OF RECORDING THEIR SINGLE AND HAVING IT SOLD IN THE 4 LOCAL AYRSHIRE SAINSBURY'S TO RAISE FUNDS IN SUPPORT OF HELP FOR HEROES."

Nov 15th, Thursday. 6pm onwards - Its the Glasgow launch of the Killer Cookbook in Waterstones, Argyle Street. This book has been cooked up (see what I did there) by a number of crime writers to help raise money for a morgue in the city of Dundee. Contributors include Val McDermid, Stuart MacBride, Jeffrey Deaver and Ian Rankin. And little old me. At the launch Caro Ramsay will be talking about the reason for the book and will be ably supported by Professer Sue Black, Tony Black (no relation), TF Muir, Pat McIntosh, Craig Robertson, Russel D. Mclean. And little old me.
