TALK AT NEWTOWN LIBRARY, POWYS WALES

TUESDAY 3RD APRIL 2012 : AT NEWTOWN LIBRARY, POWYS, WALES :
 
I will be giving a TALK about the process of  ‘WRITING AND GETTING A NOVEL PUBLISHED’ – with reference to (and specific examples from) my latest novel – the Supernatural Crime Thriller : ‘CRY OF THE MACHI A Suffolk Murder Mystery’.  The Talk will also feature details as to the research, background and motivation behind the book – and illustrations will be given throughout, using an overhead projector.

‘REPORT BACK’ :

The Talk was very successful to a capacity audience who pleasingly asked several questions afterwards.  Some people had travelled all the way up from South Wales !   The ‘County Times’ covered the event – with a  photographer in attendance.

This was followed by very pleasant ‘mingling around’ with Tea/Coffee and Biscuits kindly provied by the Library – whereby I was able to discuss many issues raised, on an individual basis, by keen ‘would be’ authors !

It was a delightful, stimulating afternoon – and I would, especially, like to express my gratitude to Newtown Library and the Library service (in particular Kate Trenbath) for their enormous help, enthusiasm and hospitality for this event.   Grateful thanks are also due to Matt Watson (of ‘Mousematt’) – my computer engineer – for his invaluable help and technical back-up.

    Great talk at the Newtown Library the other day – lots for budding writers to chew on. It was especially useful to have a breakdown of the process of publication – something that is a bit of a mystery to those without contacts inside the publishing world. Thanks Alan!

    This sounds like a must attend for crime fiction fans. I’ll see if I can be around Powys that week.
