If you are interested - I will be giving a talk at the Saffron Walden Literary Festival next week on Thursday afternoon - all about how to get published. The festival should be a huge amount of fun with some big names so please do come along if you can! More information can be found at Harts Events If you can come along it would mean a lot to independent booksellers nationwide - the reason - Harts (who organise the event) was founded in 1836 only to close down last month with WH Smith's to move onto the site. The Saffron Walden Literary Festival is a good way to show support for the bookshop - even after it has closed down. A small consolation I know.
