I attended the Manchester event, my first time ever attending a signing and meeting an author in the flesh.

Have to say I really enjoyed it. Joe was a really nice bloke, properly down to earth and came across as the kind of chap I'd enjoy chatting to over a pint in the pub.

I took my whole back catalogue and he signed them all. I was buzzing when I left :)
