News Flash…

Christmas has come early for me as I am delighted to announce that I have signed a contract with Brazilian Publisher Leabhar Books for the Portuguese editions of my three romantic suspense novels.  I’m looking forward to working with the editorial and graphics team toward the publication sometime next year.

The Spanish editions of Ring of Lies and The House on the Shore, with stunning new covers designed by Mae Phillips of CoverFresh designs will be released toward the end of the year.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who placed a bid in the Children in Read 2019 auction.  Over three hundred and fifty authors donated books, covering a wide range of genres.  A total of £8,519 was raised for this very worth cause

Sheffield Authors will be present at Kelham Island Victorian Christmas Market this year.  With over 100 stalls selling a variety of made in Sheffield gifts, seasonal goods and, of course, books, you are bound to find the perfect stocking fillers for family and friends.   The Market runs from Saturday 30th November to Sunday 1st December, with doors open from 10am to 7pm.

Finally, I shall once again be signing books at Aston Hall Christmas Fair on the 24th November. The fair is open from 11.30am until 4pm. So, if you are looking for a Christmas gift for hard-to-buy-for relatives and friends do come along as there will be a variety of crafts, jewellery candles, and gifts on display and be sure to stop by my table and say ‘hello.’

 

 

 

 

Roll up, Roll up! Come To The Fair!

July and August see summer fairs and festivals taking place all over the country.  Sheffield is no exception and on Sunday 12th August the South Yorkshire Summer Festival takes place at Wortley Hall.

The Festival is a FREE event with something for everyone to enjoy.  There is live music, dancers, donkey rides, face painting, and a bouncy castle, plus refreshment stalls and a BBQ, in addition to the craft, garden and gift stalls.  The event runs from 11am to 5pm, and as I mentioned, admission is free although there is a small fee for car parking.

This year, Sheffield Authors have organised a stall to showcase the work of it’s members living in Sheffield and the surrounding areas.

I, along with my fellow authors, will be on hand throughout the day, so if you’re looking for that hard-to-purchase present for a relative, do come along and say ‘hello.’ We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about our books, publishing and writing.

UK Indie Lit Festival 2018

I am delighted to announce that I will be taking part in the 2018 UK Indie Lit Festival, which will be returning to the Kala Sangam Arts Centre in Bradford for a second time.  This years’ event will take place on the 28th July, with doors open at 10.00am.

 

The event is free, and with over 30 authors representing a multitude of different genres, there’s something for everyone to enjoy, including a Prize Draw.  There’s an international hub where a number of authors will be appearing throughout the day via video links. If you are planning on writing a novel, but don’t know where to start Follow This Publishing and IngramSpark will be on hand to offer advice on how to get your book into print. Need some advice on how to promote your book, then join one of the workshops taking place throughout the day. In addition, several authors will be giving readings from their novels and poetry.

 

With only 37 days left until the event there is still time to get a ticket. As I mentioned it’s FREE to attend. Tickets are available from Eventbrite or by visiting the UK Indie Lit Festival website.
