Richard Lambert’s debut novel The Wolf Road is set for release in February 2020. The book is finished, edited, proofed. What’s it like to be in the in-between stage between completion and publication? We talk to Richard about how he got to this stage in his writing, and where he’s going next.

Also on the pod today: we’re very excited about the third and final International Literature Showcase of 2019, with Jackie Kay curating a list of 10 amazing BAME writers working in the UK today. Join us on Saturday 5th October at 12.45 for the live stream reveal.

Hosted by Simon Jones and Steph McKenna.
