Had the best, most hilarious and wonderful time at #Celsius232 festival of fantasy, horror and SF in #Aviles, Spain and got to hang out with some of my favourite damn writers in the world.

I spoke about career things and coming back to Celsius 232 after my previous visit in 2013. And I found a use for the rare collectible first @rba_libros edition of The Shining Girls – donated it to a local Spanish charity for children to raise money!

Huge thanks to everyone who made it happen, especially the volunteers! It was a joy to meet readers on the street because it’s all so accessible and welcoming. Thank you, Spain!
