I am thrilled to have been invited back to Portsmouth BookFest to give a talk. For those aspiring authors and those already established it's a great event to connect and share experiences. The event is amazing value: friendly and informative. You'll be able to meet many authors, (including me!), attend workshops, get signed copies of books and explore the fab facilities the Portsmouth City Library service have on offer.
On the weekend of 2nd March, i'll be giving two talks. I’m doing one slot on Research - The story comes first but novel writing is then a series of decisions. What world does your protagonist live in? I’ll talk about how and where to research and when to use it. The second will be with Dan Kieran about the Unbound publishing model. Unbound has built a better way of doing things. It’s a community, platform and publishing model that shifts the balance of power to readers and writers: the people and communities that champion underserved ideas and voices, as well as runaway successes. Find out how.
Really excited to be sharing my knowledge and helping other authors get out there! Come and say hello if you are attending.
Tickets are available on Eventbrite. See you there!
