Join me and the fabulous team at Waterstones and the even MORE fabulous Tinder Press team and the oh-my-gosh-I'm-running-out-of-superlatives-to-say-how-fabulous-she-is Lucy Ribchester to celebrate the launch of my debut novel, THE WAGES OF SIN!
Meet Sarah Gilchrist — fallen woman, medical student and amateur sleuth — as she navigates both the lecture theatre of the University of Edinburgh's medical school, only recently (and reluctantly) open to women and the limited options open to women in 1890s Britain.
When one of Sarah's patients turns up in the university dissecting room as a battered corpse, Sarah finds herself drawn into Edinburgh's dangerous underworld of bribery, brothels and body snatchers — and a confrontation with her own past.
I'll be talking about the real-life women who inspired Sarah, signing books and providing anatomical heart-shaped cookies. There will also be wine.
Please don't forget to book your ticket in advance, so I know how many delicious gory biscuits to make and don't end up scoffing them all myself at the end of the night: waterstones.com/events/book-launch-kaite-welsh-the-wages-of-sin/edinburgh-west-end
