Irritable Vowel Syndrome is Kirkland Ciccone’s live autobiography. It’s also a celebration of reading and a treacherous excursion into the world of publishing.
The pursuit of a good book is not always an easy mission! Welcome to a world of hidden staircases, tower treasures, chalet schools with midnight feasts, sinister scarecrows, libraries, vicious pensioners in tweed, bomb threats, gangs, nosy neighbours and the day Kirkland finally signed a publishing deal.
How many cases did Kirkland’s teenage sleuth detective agency really solve? Is Jane Eyre psychic or just plain psycho? Is Point Horror just pointless horror? What is the Floppy Club? And is Nancy Drew really ashamed of being ginger? All will be addressed…
Kirkland Ciccone and Looking Glass Books will team up to make the world a better place for one night only.
And if all that weren’t enough copies of his début YA novel Conjuring The Infinite will be available to buy at Looking Glass Books during (and after!) the peppy presentation in what promises to be a very witty and ridiculous night.
Conjuring The Infinite is a tale of Madness, Magic and Murder set in The Cottage, a care unit in the country for troubled teenagers who have been chewed up by the system.
The residents are in mourning for the loss of one of their number - the dazzling and outwardly faultless Seth Kevorkian. After the funeral, they return to The Cottage where a shocking truth unfolds... Seth was no ordinary teenager. He was a disciple of an ethereal power. And his fixation with Conjuring The Infinite drove him to terrible acts. It might even have driven someone to kill him. Something moves in the shadows, hiding in the mirrors. Can the housemates trust what they see? Can they even trust each other?
