Aliya Whiteley’s Book Launch

Last night I had the pleas­ure of attend­ing the North Devon book launch of Three Things About Me, the new book from Aliya Whiteley. Her pub­lish­er is Macmillan New Writing, of whom many people have had many things to say. The qual­ity of the books, of course, speaks for itself. So far I’ve read Aliya’s, Roger’s, and Michael’s, and I’d say they’re all ster­ling efforts.

Aliya’s launch was co-organ­ised by Ottakar’s and Barnstaple Library and she did a fine job of sum­mar­ising her book and giv­ing the sixty-plus listen­ers a taste of the first chapter. I had to shoot off just after the read­ing, but Aliya was kind enough to sign my copy and chat to me about the Macmillan pub­lish­ing pro­cess. We also remembered the ordeal of edit­ing Déjà Vu — my edit­or was one Aliya Whiteley — and I could thank her, in per­son, for pulling so many of my irons out of the fire. Aliya’s book should be avail­able in all good book­shops.
