The Rising Son at the end of 1916 Centenary Year

It’s been a really exciting 1916 centenary year and my novel The Rising Son has sold way beyond my expectations and has kept me busy doing readings and library and school visits all over the place. Belfast Book Festival and Over The Edge in Galway were high points for me!  My last three class visits will be held at the beginning of December in South East Dublin just before the close of the year and almost exactly one year after the date of publication. I’ve really enjoyed meeting the kids. Their appetite for knowledge is so well reflected in the quality and quantity of questions I’ve had to answer during the year.

I’m looking forward now to new and exciting projects in the new year, more news of  which I hope to share with you soon. So before I do my annual run down of “what I’ve done and failed to do” in the current year I will, for the last time, list the many ways in which you can get your hands on a copy of The Rising Son (if you haven’t done so already!) If you’ve read the book I’d be really pleased if you could put a short review up on Amazon or Goodreads – thanks!

So here we go:

  • You can buy it directly from me by clicking the cover image on the right side of this page.
  • Eason in O’Connell Street still have a couple of copies (it’s in the adult Irish Lit section for some reason)
  • Kenny’s Book Shop, Galway.
You can always try your local independent bookshop – there may be copies floating around in some Easons stores around the country also. Failing that you can always borrow it from your local library! Which ever way you get your hands on it, I hope you enjoy the read.
Thanks to all the readers who made it such a success so far! It’s been a trip…
