Ben Aaronovitch  The October Man

Sunday Times bestselling author of the RIVERS OF LONDON series, Ben Aaronovitch, is embarking on an exclusive tour of Independent Bookshops to celebrate Independent Bookshop Week and to coincide with the release of his new novella, THE OCTOBER MAN (13th Jun 2019).
If you would like your bookshop to be considered for an event please contact Stevie Finegan ( with some details about your shop. We would love to know how you would envision an event with you taking place, along with your estimate for audience size and details about how to get to you if you’re off the beaten track. Please get in contact by Friday 8th March to express interest.
Ben Aaronovitch has written for many TV series including Doctor Who and been a bookseller himself. He is now best know for Peter Grant and his RIVERS OF LONDON novels, which have now sold more than 1.5 million copies. He now writes full time and still lives in London, the city he likes to refer to as 'the capital of the world'.
Independent Bookshops are very import to Ben and he has said, ‘I love a good independent bookshop, nowhere else can get the same sense of cosy familiarity coupled with the excitement of never knowing what you're going to find on the next shelf. I think, like libraries, that they are cultural resource we will lose at our peril.’
As well as pitching for an event with Ben this Independent Bookshop Week you are able to order copies of an ‘Indies’ Exclusive’ edition of THE OCTOBER MAN which will be signed by the author, numbered and feature an exclusive stamp’.
