August feedback

Before I arrange a feedback meeting for August I wanted to check if anyone would be interested. I was thinking of the 29th. In past years we have not held an August meeting because members have been on holiday. If you are around and keen, then just leave a comment below. If we have a few people, I will book a venue. If now we can have the feedback at our Blackwell’s meeting in September.

 

All the best,

July meeting: Stuart Turton, winner of the Costa First Novel Award 2018

July 31st, 7.0 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Blackwell’s Books Shop, 48-51 Broad Street, Oxford, OX1 3BQ.

Writers at Blackwell’s are delighted to present an evening with Stuart Turton, winner of the Costa First Novel Award 2018, where he will be exploring the process of writing his award-winning debut novel ‘The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle’.

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

Tonight, Evelyn Hardcastle will be killed … Again

It is meant to be a celebration but it ends in tragedy. As fireworks explode overhead, Evelyn Hardcastle, the young and beautiful daughter of the house, is killed.

But Evelyn will not die just once. Until Aiden – one of the guests summoned to Blackheath for the party – can solve her murder, the day will repeat itself, over and over again. Every time ending with the fateful pistol shot.

The only way to break this cycle is to identify the killer. But each time the day begins again, Aiden wakes in the body of a different guest. And someone is determined to prevent him ever escaping Blackheath…
