Over these past few weeks I, along with Caroline Smailes and Jon Mayhew, have been forming a plan.
A plan for a series of events. Events that will be relaxed, informal and fun. We wanted them to be accessible and informative.
So what will you get if you come along to one of these events?
You’ll get the opportunity to listen to a short story writer (that’s me), a children’s author (that’s Jon) and a novelist (that’s Caroline) chatting about all things books. From the seeds of ideas, to how we write (how we definitely DON’T get cross when things aren’t working), to the editing process, how publishing works, all the way to the finished book, and probably beyond. Your questions will be welcome throughout.
Sounds good, no?
Our first event will be at Chester library on June 9th, 7-9pm. I’ll announce future dates here when I can. In the meantime you can join the fan/events page on Facebook by clicking here
, and you can read the full details below. I am really, really
looking forward to this. We hope to see you there!
