Heartfelt thanks to everyone who packed out Waterstones, Deansgate, Manchester for the sold-out launch of ‘The Night Brother’!
It was a wonderful evening for my new novel, dedicated:

‘To Manchester
and all the wanderers
who have found a home in this Rainy City’

TPOC tops Waterstones hardback fiction chart

The Palace of Curiosities is number one in the Waterstones hardback fiction chart!

This is amazing news. Picture snapped 16th April 2013 at Waterstones Deansgate in Manchester. If you look VERY closely there's a black sticker on each cover, reading 'Signed By The Author'.

However many readings I've done (and I've done plenty over the *ahem* years) this one was different. This was The Big One. I was so nervous I couldn't sit still. Seventy tickets pre-sold, and 30 more folk turned up on the night. The room was packed: standing room only. I found out afterwards that Waterstones had to shift the event to the largest room they had.

There was my novel, stacked on a table. Posters with my name. No, I didn't think I'd ever get to this point, yet here I was.

The audience were, in a word, wonderful: so much love and generosity. What an astonishing launch event. I honestly don't think it could have been better. Waterstones even sold out of books! I thought no-one bought hardback fiction any more. Clearly I was wrong. The manager emailed me and said the event was 'one of the best of Deansgate's history'. What, me? Yes, I'm stunned.

There's been some great feedback – the mistressful Elizabeth Baines has posted a blog review of the night, here:

And what a sign-off! 'The characters are fascinating, and Victorian London is vividly captured, and of course the language sparkles like sharp-cut jewels.'

An Evening with Rosie Garland

Waterstones
91 Deansgate,
Manchester, M3 2BW
Wednesday 31st May 18:30

Waterstones Deansgate is thrilled to welcome Rosie Garland to the store for the launch of her new novel, 'The Night Brother'. Join us on Wednesday 31st May at 6:30pm to hear Rosie discuss her fantastic third novel, before answering questions from the audience and signing copies of her books.

From the author of The Palace of Curiosities and Vixen comes a bold new novel exploring questions of identity, sexual equality and how well we really know ourselves. Perfect for fans of Angela Carter, Sarah Waters and Erin Morgenstern. Rich are the delights of late nineteenth-century Manchester for young siblings Edie and Gnome. They bicker, banter, shout and scream their way through the city's streets, embracing its charms and dangers. But as the pair grow up, it is Gnome who revels in the night-time, while Edie wakes exhausted each morning, unable to quell a sickening sense of unease, with only a dim memory of the dark hours.
With echoes of Orlando and Jekyll & Hyde, this is a story about the vital importance of being honest with yourself. Every part of yourself. After all, no-one likes to be kept in the dark.

Tickets are £5/3 and available online and in store.
