Freshney Place Shopping Centre, Grimsby is sponsoring an ‘Author Day’ this Saturday 15th March – 10 am until 3 pm.
There’s a saying that states there is a book in all of us. However, getting it written down on paper can quite often be, (excuse the pun) a different story. There are those of us who have toiled for years to finally finish their wonderful creation. Nurturing the pages like a child, until the story flourished and grew into something spectacular. Now that that the ink has finally dried, perhaps you’re feeling at a bit of a loss and aren’t quite sure what to do with your masterpiece. This is where an ‘Author Day’ comes in very handy.
Tell me more about this event I hear you cry? Well, it’s a day dedicated by author(s) in which they talk about their experiences of the publishing world but more importantly it’s about sharing their knowledge with you. If you have part of a manuscript that you would like to share with someone then why not bring it along to the Author Day? Perhaps we can guide you towards your next step, or if you don’t feel quite so brave, then maybe we can give you some writing tips or simply offer free advice.
Where will you find us? We will be situated near BHS and just behind The Muffin Break Coffee Shop. I’m well prepared! Just in case a whole flock of writers descend upon Freshney Place, Grimsby in their thousands on Saturday, so don’t worry, I won’t be alone. I have two terrific authors by my side to help. Firstly, there will be A . E. Murphy (Alex) who wrote, ‘The Little Bits Series’ and secondly, Shaun Allan who wrote, ‘Sin’ and ‘Dark Places’. Both of these authors have traveled on the same rocky road as yourself only they have learned a few helpful tips along the way.
We even have FREE stuff to giveaway!
Yes, you can’t beat a freebie and we will have some great information for you to take away on the day so you can study what you have learned at your leisure. The articles will include information as to what are the differences between self-publishing and mainstream publishers, where you can find actual websites that will publish your book, and the do’s and don’ts of creative writing. None of us are experts, far from it, but we do have a mountain of experience between us which we would like to share with aspiring authors who need a little guidance and more importantly, a helping hand.
We will also have sample chapters from our own books to give away and of course you will be able to purchase our books with the opportunity to have them signed by the author. This is not a prerequisite and you do not have to buy a book to ask for help, it is just another part of the ‘Author Day’ and if you would like to come along and chat to us then please do, we are all looking forward to meeting you.
* Please note Alex will only have ebooks available on the day.
