Romancing The Word
Tamworth Literary Festival 11th June 2016
First of all, I have a special thank you to my daughter Shelby and my fiancé Ian for all their help with lugging my case full of books and bag full of swag on and off the train. You guys rock!
We made our way to Tamworth-a small town in the heart of England for a special book signing event organised by the lovely Tina Williams, Anthony Poulton-Smith and the TamLitFest crew. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but once I arrived, I was greeted warmly and welcomed into the lovely little library, smack bang in the town centre.
I’ve always loved Tamworth and I only live a ten minute train ride away, so I was pleased as punch when Tina personally invited me to attend.
I was lucky enough to meet lovely authors, some I already know and others I’ve never met before. Here I am, sat with the lovely S J Warner (Sally). I haven’t seen this lady for nearly a year and it was great to finally catch up in person and have a few giggles.
I had a very enjoyable day and I am so grateful for the invitation, the flowers and the warm generosity of everyone involved. I really hope to be a part of the next one.
Other events held on the day were author talks, readings and workshops on different subjects held at St Editha’s church opposite the library. I’m sorry that I didn’t get a chance to experience any of the talks, perhaps next time.
All of these types of events increase exposure for authors. I managed to sign a couple of books and give away my lovely swag. Most of all, it was a great day and I'm so pleased I agreed to attend.
Here’s Laura Morgan and her fantastic books. My daughter and I have both read some of her work and we love her.
Here’s the amazing Lianne Cotton, it was so great to see her again.
Here's a couple of pics of my table.
