The first copy of The New Eastgate Swing – the second book to feature Dan Markham (Dark Briggate Blues) set in 1950s Leeds – has arrived in the post. It’ll be in the bookshops early next month, in paperback and waiting for you.
You can read about it here, but there’s jazz, the lingering strands of the Second World War, the growing threat of the Cold War, spies, assassins, and, yes, a touch of 1950s romance.
There’s going to be a launch for the book at 7pm on Thursday February 11 at Waterstone’s on Albion Street in Leeds. It’s free, I promise fun, and, well, FREE WINE. If any of you fancy dressing up in 1950s clothes, there might even be a prize for you.
And did I mention FREE WINE. Maybe I did. But I’m sure you don’t need any inducements. My publisher’s going to be there, so a good turnout would be very much appreciated. And you get FREE WINE.
So come along. Please.
