Smile gets its first mention in the paper.
On Tuesday 29th Sept, I had a really enjoyable chat with Kiren Parmar and the members of Tamworth's book club. Kiren gave me a lovely little shout out on Tamworth Radio on Thursday 1st Oct which I thought I'd share 😊
The very talented Catherine Clarke, who illustrated the front and back covers for both Golem and Smile, has put out a call for all writers, publishers, authors, editors, designers, illustrators, & readers to be interviewed for her new blog. I was very pleased to be asked to take part. Here is a link to her website for those of you who would like to read my interview.
Way back in March, when we were all still allowed to play out, I took part in Tamworth's literary book festival and got speaking to a lovely author called Trish Moran. Trish does interviews with authors on her website and asked if I wanted to be interviewed...obviously I said yes 😁. Here is a link to her website for those of you who would like to read it.
Tamworth Literary Book Festival - March 2020
I had a great time holding two workshops at Rawlett and Polesworth high schools and being part of Tamworth's Literary Festival. The children were enthusiastic and full of great ideas which will hopefully one day become great stories. They were also interested to hear a little bit about me and my writing journey. Thanks to everyone involved. Hopefully I'll be invited back to speak again one day.
"Ed was really engaging - the boys in the class particularly enjoyed hearing about E.J Parry's life and writing." - C.Pirrie (Head of English)
"Great and engaging...Very inspiring and relatable story. Ed was very encouraging of the students and they really enjoyed it." - Joseph Ray (Librarian).
Author talk at Atherstone library 4.03.20
Unfortunately, I forgot to take any pictures from my author talk, hopefully they'll have me back again though and I'll take some then. I did however have a lovely afternoon talking about myself, my writing journey and of course about Golem. Thank you to everyone who came and to the library for organising it.
Book signing at WHSmith. 29.02.20
I was pleased to have the opportunity to have another successful book signing at Tamworth’s WHSmith on Saturday for “Golem”.
Again it was fantastic to see so many people coming to enquire about Golem before buying their own signed copy. Several asked me when part two of the Bellualis Chronicles was due to be released and I was pleased to announce that the book is currently in the editing stage and will be released by September at the latest.
I am still writing part 3 (having had a little break over Christmas) and had the chance to jot another chapter down during the day.
Thank you again to everyone at WHSmith for making me feel so welcome and for helping to make the signing a success.
