After years of writing, editing, and living Silencio, it was incredible to see my novel on the stand at London Book Fair 2016. The fair is an industry event and some authors find it difficult to enjoy however I love everything about books and so the business side also interests me. Well-known writers including Marian Keyes, Jeffery Archer, Meg Roscoff participated in interviews but the most impressive was Judith Kerr, in her 90’s and as sharp as a youngster. As usual, there were interesting presentations at the Writer’s Centre which included advice about public relations, marketing, self-publishing through different forums and how to beat the slush pile.
I have returned to my office ready to write.
