Mummies in Edinburgh

31 Aug 2014

Steve MummyRegular readers will know I am quite fond of a bit of ‘getting into character’ – or ‘dressing up like a crazy person’ in any case! And since I’d come to Edinburgh to promote Secret Agent Mummy I decided I would go for it.

I took my headwear off pretty quickly once the event was underway, as it was very hot. And I had to snip fingerholes at the ends of my bandages so I could play the ukulele without it slipping.

A good crowd came along, and I found myself talking about all sorts of other silly things besides my books. Here I am being walked to my event by the tech lady (I think she was a bit embarrassed to be seen with me!).

All in all it was a good and frantic trip. I visited a school in Fife, went to a lovely dinner thrown for Malorie Blackman, caught up with my friend Dave, watched some comedy, fell out of a bathtub, ran into editors and authors I knew and managed to get back in time to watch the new Doctor Who. Yay!

Now the holidays are coming to a close and I have to seriously crack on with work. I hope you’ve had a cool summer (well, a warm one, really, but you know what I mean!)

 
  • I went to a music festival in summer, it was great! It sounds like you had a fantastic trip too. Getting into character is always fun!

  • I’ve had a great holiday too Steve, we when to lake Geneva and the French alps by the way, what did you think of the new doctor who?

    • I’m glad you’ve had a great holiday, Chris! I visited once. Prime Young Bond territory out there! I’m still getting used to the new Doctor Who but I think he’s shaping up very nicely!

  • Hello Steve. I am very disappointed that I missed your show at the Edinburgh festival. I’m your best fan and spend a lot of my time reading Astrosaurs books

  • Hi Steve, Jack and I wanted to thank you for the “bulging parcel” you and your author friends sent. We’re currently having great fun reading “Secret Agent Mummy” and looking forward to reading the rest of the books. Once again thanks Jack & Owen

  • You are absolutely cool! (if that is some way of describing someone)
    I love your books and I have been reading a lot of books, trying to figure out who was my favorite author. I think I found one..YOU! 🙂

  • OH MY!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! MUMMIES ACTUALLY WEAR CLOTHES!! BUT ANYWAY, WHO WALKS AROUND NAKED EXCEPT FOR BANDAGES, TOTES KNEW THAT THEY WOULD ANYWAY, I THINK HE NEEDS TO BUY SOME MORE FASHIONABLE CLOTHES AND MAYBE A HOME, OR HIS PYRAMID MAY DO… OH, STOP OFF AT TESCO TOO! OH, CAN YOU BUY ME SOME CHOCOLATE WHEN YOU GO MR MUMMY?
