I am reading this at the moment, and it's basically reality if Trump wins the US presidency. Very disturbing sci-fi told through a young girl's diary. It also has an intro by the great William Gibson! I've missed reading sci-fi, it really brings me a lot of happiness.

Hey everyone, apologies for the long hiatus! I'll be getting back to posting regularly from now on. I've been away in Iraq, so I thought I'd come back with this: a photo of Baghdad's famous book market on Mutanabbi street. This is also where the writers and artists of Baghdad used to hang out, and (probably related) where you can find the strongest coffee in the city. It's an absolute sanctuary for book lovers!

Apologies for an excess of River of Ink posts recently, but my book was just nominated for The Guardian's Not The Booker Prize longlist! It's a prize where readers vote on which book they want to go through to the shortlist. So if any of you loved River of Ink and want to support it further, head along to the Not The Booker Prize page and leave a comment - that counts as your vote! I've been trying to work out how to say thanks to those who vote for me. Post a comment here if you voted, and if I get on the shortlist I'll do a video reading from River of Ink and tag you all in the video (I'll do it anyway if there's enough of you!). Thanks as always for all your love and support! You guys are amazing!

I got given this piece of loveliness by my agent Eve White the other week, been waiting to get round to it. Looks awesome though! I'm going to read it right after Foucault's Pendulum...

I just reached 10k followers, and what better way to celebrate than this amazing piece of art by @mika.caviola? Honestly it's been a wonderful year on Instagram, and I'm so grateful to everyone who's followed me along the way!

Heading away for the summer this week, taking this with me. I love most of Faulks' books and fanboyed quite hard when I saw him at the Galle Literary Festival in January. Anyone got to this yet?

Anyone read this? It's a really amazing book, couldn't recommend more... It's a semi-fictionalised autobiography of a sudanese refugee. Incredible storytelling by Dave Eggers.

Proud of my little brother Duncan for graduating the other day! He let me wear the hat because I've never had a graduation...

Thrilled by this little River of Ink mention in the Guardian Review! (reposted because this is a nicer picture and I'm an inveterate perfectionist!)

Cheersing watermelon halves with @naaderabbasi at the 2000trees festival in Cheltenham! Amazing 3 days of good music and good friends. This photo taken on a disposable camera!
