We welcome a popular children's author, Virginia will come and speak to us about her latest work Storm which manages a dark and mysterious feel, though not without humour:
Welcome to The Rain (H2O in the US) and The Storm . . . I’m Virginia and I – did not write this story. Ruby did. She's my main character and she wrote a story about what happens when a totally ordinary (and utterly unique, because everyone is) British teenager finds herself caught up in a global apocalyptic/dystopian horror-thriller - with comedy, unsuitable footwear and a bacterium from outer space. It is also a story about love; love for your home, for your family, for your friends; love for strangers . . . for the planet we live on . . . and for the wrong guy. (Possibly.)
Meet the Authors.
Saturday 28th November 10.00 am to 1.00 pm, Cambridge Central Library
Two of our members, Les Brookes and Richard Gould, will be promoting their books at Cambridge Central Library, along with four other local writers, in a free drop-in event, with an opportunity to buy books.
Who Writes and Reads Romantic Fiction?
I’ve joined the Romantic Novelists Association and took part in their 2014 Annual Conference. Both the Association and the conference are valuable, the latter providing an interesting mix of practical tips (how to self-publish, attract an agent, ideas about Plot, Location, and Characterisation); some theoretical background (the Chemistry of Reading, universal elements of the genre); and the opportunity to meet agents, editors and publishers. I was fortunate to be able to chat with Hazel Cushion, the founder of Accent Press and was highly impressed with how the company works and their future plans. I’m looking forward to working with them.
