I will be giving a Powerpoint presentation on the ‘Long Road to Publication’ along with reading from Turn of the Tide and a Q/A session at Peebles Arts Festival. 4.00pm on 27th August.
Anyone within shouting distance of Peebles, VERY welcome to attend – I don’t want to be talking to myself…
Fascinating article about mudlarks. Now I know where it comes from!
This didn’t make cheery reading for me – as my novel doesn’t neatly fit into a very familiar slot. But interesting perspective nonetheless. (And sadly, probably with a lot of truth in it.)
I’d be interested to see where in the current marketplace readers would place Turn of the Tide or if I really do have to worry that it is too unfamiliar.
