Fellside by Mike CareyMike will be at Write Blend in Liverpool to launch his eagely anticipated new novel Fellside, published by Orbit Books, on the day of its publication.

 Fellside is a maximum security prison on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors. It’s not the kind of place you’d want to end up. But it’s where Jess Moulson could be spending the rest of her life.

It’s a place where even the walls whisper.

And one voice belongs to a little boy with a message for Jess.

Will she listen?

Speaking with regards to Mike’s Waterstone’s signing and the Birmingham Comics Festival, Paul H Birch commented: “I am delighted to be working with Waterstones to promote this event, and look forward to developing the festival’s relationship with them and a number of other special parties in the future.”

• The Waterstone’s event is ticketed but free and one need only pop into Waterstones to reserve a place, call the shop on 0121 633 4353 or tweet @waterstonesbham
