Jo, Joe, Judy, Al and Me

The new edition of Words With Jam is out. It has an exclusive interview with JK Rowling as well as 60 second interviews with Judy Blume and Joseph O'Connor and an article by friend-of-this-blog, Big Al of Big Al's Books and Pals - he became an overnight internet sensation after he gave a reasoned 2* review to a book on his site and the author berated him for it in the comments section with such memorable phrases as: 'I'm not in the mood for playing snake with you', 'Who are you any way' and 'Fuck off!'

The magazine also carries a review of the recent event in Oxford where I told my story, Aubergine, and read an extract from The Miracle Inspector. The Words with Jam people liked the story so much they asked me to record a special audio edition for their podcast series which you can listen to here. Alternatively, you can watch a video of me telling the story here.

You can buy a printed copy of Words With Jam, download it for your Kindle or read it for free in PDF format.
