My 2018 diary is already filling up with various talks, and there are two very special events I would like to share with you. Firstly, I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited to take part in Hull University’s 3 day English Literature Festival organised by The National Collaborative Outreach Programme. The Festival starts on the 6th February 2018 and is aimed at raising aspirations of students aged 13-18 across the Humber region by increasing their knowledge of careers in writing, publishing, illustrating, marketing, public speaking and much more. A selection of panels and workshops are planned and full details will be available shortly on the website: www.force-higher.co.uk and on the Twitter feed @Force_HE #ELFHumber2018.
Secondly, Bradford UK Indie Literature Festival is returning for a third year on the 28th July, and is once again being held in the fabulous Kala Sangam in the centre of the city. This is a free event, with 40 authors in attendance, so there is sure to be a book to suit all tastes. Details on where to obtain a ticket are on the UKindieLitFest website.
As it is the holiday season, I have reduced the price of the Kindle version of my romantic suspense novel, The House on the Shore, until 3rd January 2018. You can download a copy from Amazon for only 99p/99c instead of the usual price of £2.99/$2.99.
The audiobook versions of The House on the Shore and Ring of Lies are garnering good reviews. If you have never listened to an audiobook and would like to do so, I have a six vouchers available for a free download from Audible.co.uk, and Audible.com on a first come, first served basis. If you would like one, just send me an email via the contact form on my website stating which recording you would prefer.
2017 is nearly over, so I would like to thank everyone who has attended an event or purchased a book, a very Happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year. I hope to see you again in 2018.
