Group 2012 members talk about their progress

They will share what works and what has been a waste of time in the journey to publication. These four members represent different stages on their journey. It would be great if everyone shared any useful hints and experiences.

New blogs

Dear Group,

 

Paul has published his book on following in the footsteps of Laurie Lee’s journey in Spain. Visit his blog at http://www.thelittlesummerofthequince.wordpress.com

 

Paul writes:

The End of the Road

Today is a landmark day for me, a day towards which I have been working for over two years. My book As I Walked Out Through Spain in Search of Laurie Lee is officially published today  and available on Amazon.co.uk as a kindle/paperback.

May Meeting

The May meeting will be at Blackwell’s Bookshop at 7pm on Wednesday May 21st.

 

Dennis Hamley, renowned Children’s and Young Adult author, will share his personal experience and give tips on plotting your story. Dennis was also a tutor on the Oxford Diploma in Creative Writing course and is a publisher and popular blogger. Dennis has just published two new books on Kindle and has an impressive list of books to his name.

 

If you have any questions about writing or how avoid being a one-book wonder and have a long and illustrious career like Dennis, then this evening is not to me missed.

The Meeting House has kindly agreed that we can stay a little later in future to give everyone a chance to read their work. However, if you missed out last time, please remind me and we will start with those who might have missed out last time or had less time.
