Ich Bin Raus, the German language edition of Escape Everything! has been doing well in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We made it into the top 100 of the Amazon.de book chart and ordered a second print run after just a month. Here’s a collection of press cuttings, largely interviews and reviews.

I made a promotional video for the book! It’s one part A Clockwork Orange trailer to two parts MS PowerPoint. Hope you like it! Be sure to turn the speakers on.
The amazing ‘Pure Riddy’ comes to the comedy fest this year. These nights are always ace. I’ll be reading from my teen diaries at the March 24th show. Get your tickets here.
Doing five minutes of GOLD (alongside 12 other readers with their own golden fives) at Meadhbh Boyd’s lovely, supportive, hilarious gig. Come! Glad Cafe, Glasgow. October 7th at 19:30.
