Thanks to coronavirus, I’ve barely made any appearances at flesh-and-blood public events in 2020; nor do I have any planned in the near future. But I do have one or two Covid-safe events in my calendar, so I am rather pointlessly listing them instead.

Also, I am tentatively listing one real-life event for autumn 2021. But let’s all try and get safely through what’s left of 2020 first…

“Unbreakable” at the EQUUS Film & Arts Fest 2020

Thanks to Covid-19, the EQUUS Film & Arts Fest will be a bit complicated this year. (Normally it just takes over Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington…) But if you’re interested in horses, films and books, it’s worth exploring (start here). Unbreakable is up for a WINNIE award on 21 November; and you can see Julianne Neal’s interview with me for the festival here.

“Feet in the Clouds” – the audiobook

Sixteen years after my book about fell-running was first published, Audible are due to be bringing out their audio version. Narrated by the author (below), it could be a perfect eco-friendly Christmas present for anyone in need of motivation and adventure…

If I’d known I would end up having to read it all out loud, I’d have made it shorter and used fewer
hard-to-pronounce place-names

US paperback of “Unbreakable” published

Pegasus Books’ very handsome paperback edition
costs $16.95

Pegasus’s paperback is nearly 100g lighter than their hardback and more than $7 cheaper – but story of Lata Brandisová remains as strange and thrilling as ever. Pre-order here.

November 2021 (tbc)

Running & writing weekend, Dartmoor

Originally scheduled for November 2020, this popular weekend retreat/workshop for runners interested in writing and writers interested in running has been provisionally postponed to November 2021 on account of coronavirus. Part of Adharanand Finn’s Way of the Runner series of retreats, it is co-hosted by Adharanand (author of Running With the Kenyans, Rise of the Ultra Runners, etc) and me. Precise date to be confirmed, but you can find out more here.

Thanks to Write This Run for the picture at the top, from their Monoblogues event at The Drayton Arms Theatre in August 2014.
