We begin on the 8th June with the launch of Brian McHugh’s much anticipated The Practice Field. This event will take place in Sweeney’s Bar in Glasgow.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear Brian discuss The Practice Field and answer questions from the audience.

Attendance is free so bring a friend!

A. M. Nicol returns with another novel based on a real case with Sheila Garvie: Mastermind or Victim, which covers the investigation, trial and aftermath of the murder of Maxwell Robert Garvie in 1968. The whole of Scotland was scandalised by this case, but Nicol’s book offers a refreshing perspective on Max’s wife, Sheila, who was not treated kindly by the press or the justice system.

The official launch will be on the 15th June at 6:30 at a venue in Glasgow to be confirmed. Sad that you are not in Glasgow and so cannot attend? Not a problem! The event will also be streamed on the Ringwood Publishing Facebook page.

You will not only be able to hear A. M. Nicol speak and a few passages from the book being read, but the Q&A session will also open the floor to the audience and allow everyone to participate in a stimulating discussion encompassing everything from women’s portrayal in crime to the extensive research undertaken by the author and the process of reassessing history. 

Reading the book before the launch will certainly enable readers to theorise and engage with the event in exciting ways, so why not try pre-ordering it? You can do so here by clicking HERE!

The event is completely free and does not require a ticket, so feel free to pop by with a few friends!
