I’ve heard Conor O’ Callaghan, and Jenn Ashworth read before, and they are excellent. Well worth checking this one out if you can.
“An afternoon of reading heaven for fiction lovers with the chance to meet five super authors as well as other people who love books and reading as much as you do.
Authors taking part are Linda Green with her psychological drama While My Eyes Were Closed, Eleanor Wasserberg with her chilly, compulsive debut Foxlowe , creator of ITV’s hit series Blue Murder with her compelling crime novel The Silence Between Breaths, Sheffield-based writer Conor O’Callaghan with his haunting, enigmatic debut Nothing on Earth set in provincial Ireland and award winning author Jenn Ashworth with her eerie lyrical new book Fell.
Plus free giveaways for everyone who attends!”
Tickets £7.50/£6.50 (cons)

So I have a cover! To use one of my well worn expressions, as you can see”it’s kind of dark” . The book will come out officially in November, but is available to pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble etc. And I’m hoping to arrange a Sheffield launch that we can drink wine at and catch up!
If you would like to pre-order a copy, here’s the Amazon link:
It’s been a long journey since writing “The End” to actually having a cover and a publication date, and as many of you know a few spanners were slung into the works along the way. I hope all the WEA Thursday night writers are flying through their novels or pushing through them one word at a time (like I do). Missing talking about books and writing with you all, and I can’t wait to hear your news. I thought I’d share a tiny bit of mine on here.
All the best from across the Atlantic. Laura xx
