And from Tuesday, November 5 to Thursday November 7th, I will be visiting Sweden. As soon as I know where I’ll be visiting and what times, I will make a post about them.

So a very busy time for me, and I hope I will meet a lot of readers on this journey.

    Yay, you’recoming to Sweden! I will most definitely be there, no matter what city you choose. :) This is a dream come true!

  2. YES! Best news ever. You’re coming to Leeds and Manchester! I cannot wait. I literally finished Blood Of Dragon last night and felt saddened that it was all over. But I will be there to meet and thank you for your work. 

    One quick question, the Talks, they do include signing as well don’t they?

  3. Wonderful news! I’ve been waiting on your UK dates for a few months now. Very much looking forward on hearing you speak again in Manchester, it’s been entirely too long since your last visit promoting Dragon Keeper.

    Hi Robin, am delighted for your British (& Swedish ) fans but just chancing my arm; you wouldn’t pop over to Ireland while you’re in the area???

  5. My publisher sets up my appearances on a book tour, so that is out of my hands, I’m afraid. However, there is a bid for the Worldcon to come to Ireland in 2019! Go to for more information. If you have it, we will come!

  6. I’m very excited to be coming back to the UK and Sweden! Can’t wait!

  7. Oh, I will definitely be signing books as well as doing a reading! Thanks for asking. Now, some bookstores regulate what books can be signed, and I respect whatever the store rules are. For me, my rules are that I’ll sign any of my books you bring. If you have a lot of books, the usual courtesy is that I sign three, and then you return to the end of the line to give others a turn. But I always stay until all books are signed, even if we have to go out on the sidewalk to finish!


  8. As soon as I know details, I will post them! I loved my first visit to Sweden and cannot wait to visit again!
