Authors and books and walks and talks!

Some more fantastic titles heading your way!

There are some cracking titles coming this Autumn, so many that we've created a dedicated pre-ordering section on our website, which can be found here.
Titles include new novels from Ann Cleeves, Ian Rankin and Sally Rooney, as well as a memoir from Bob Mortimer, but we thought we'd highlight a few more today!

 The Gruffalo and Friends Advent Calendar Book, Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler
Thursday 2nd September, £19.99

It's possibly a *bit* early to be thinking about Christmas, but after the past 18 months we are already excited about it! Count down to Christmas with this advent calendar collection of twenty-four mini activity, song and rhyme books, based on the bestselling picture books by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

 The Listening Party, Tim Burgess
Thursday 2nd September, special pre-order offer £20

In 2020 when the world was forced to hit pause on live in-person gigs, Tim Burgess found an ingenious way to bring people together by inviting artists and bands to host real-time album playbacks via Twitter. Relive 100 of the most memorable listening parties here with stories from bands and fans, rarely seen backstage images, and unique insider info from those who created these iconic albums. We have exclusive, signed editions available.

 Case Study, Graeme Macrae Burnet
Thursday 7th October, £14.99

In Case Study, Graeme Macrae Burnet presents a dazzling - and often wickedly humorous - meditation on the nature of sanity, identity and truth itself, by one of the most inventive novelists writing today. We have exclusive signed editions available, there's also a free notebook ideal for your own case studies with every pre-order.

 Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone, Diana Gabaldon
Tuesday 23rd November, special pre-order offer £15

It has been years since the last Outlander novel, but we're sure it's been worth the wait! Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall were torn apart by the Jacobite Rising of 1745, and it took them twenty years to find each other again. Now the American Revolution threatens to do the same. We have exclusive signed editions available.

All of these books are available to pre-order on our website now, just follow this link:

Or, just email me and I'll add you to the lists: sally@maddingcrowdlinlithgow.com
