Transworld recently hosted their crime scene evening by celebrating Cath Staincliffe’s new Scott and Bailey novel, Bleed Like Me. Attended by a select group, there was a great Q & A in which Cath talked in depth about her writing. The questions were then opened up to the floor and it wasn’t long before I asked one of my own, regarding the high level of realism that Cath manages to portray in her books, (well of course I had to ask, with me being me). The evening then moved onto tasting a delicious array of food, evidenced by my picture below.
There was lots of chatter amongst those present, (not evidenced here to protect the innocent). Copies of the book were signed too, and fans of Dead To me now have a chance to enjoy the latest story and catch up with their favourite characters.
After an enjoyable time I managed to escape from the crime scene unscathed, but it was a very close call. A round of applause to the Transworld team, you know who you are.
Bleed Like Me by Cath Staincliffe is available now.
