LAHE - A Summer Audience

A Summer Audience
16 June 2012 10am-4pm
Sir William Romney’s School, Tetbury, Glos

I thought I'd let you know about an event that's coming up that I'm really excited about going along to.  

If you are interested in books in anyway whatsoever, whether it be that you are a bookworm like myself with your nose permanently stuck in a book, whether you've always had a desire to write but don't know where to start, or if you have actually started but are not sure what to do next, then A Summer Audience is for you. 

This fun day out is hosted by, an interactive Reader/Author website and it’s a day for sharing and interaction.

Throughout the day there will be:-

* Talks on everything from the journey of an author from ‘zero to hero’; branding and that all important image; a crime writer tells all; a publisher’s insight … and lots more!

* Readings by authors you may have already read, and some exciting newcomers
Keynote Speaker – celebrated author Jeannie Johnson 

* A selection of mini-workshops are on offer to those interested in writing; also on offer is the opportunity to experience a “taster” Reiki healing session with an author of spiritual/self-help books

* Cast your vote for the Author ‘Page Turner’ competition – one lucky voter will win a stack of books

* Look at the displays and examples of some exciting new Authors’ work and some hitting those Amazon charts! Buy signed copies; find out how to become an Associate Reader

* Mingle, chat to authors new and ‘not so new’ – whether you are an avid reader, or interested in everything leading up to publication, it’s going to be a fun day out!
