Come and see two authors telling the unvarnished truth…

Join me “in conversation” with the very splendid F.M.A. Dixon, author of the delightful The Last House on Everywhere Street next Saturday 30th July at the Little Green Book Shop in Herne Bay.

Now, the more canny of you out there might be thinking; ‘Hang on, didn’t these two do an event at the Faversham Literary Festival at the beginning of the year?’ We did indeed, but a lot can happen in six months, and we’re going to compare our experiences of being published in 2022 and we won’t be holding back. 

We’ve promised to tell the truth about festivals, book launches, Covid, school events, imposter syndrome, horror movies, driving agents potty, hassling publishers, escalating paper costs, avoiding reading reviews, and all while trying to write our next books.

Come for the unvarnished truth, stay for the free wine and cake (all included in the ticket price!).

Tickets are £5 and redeemable if you buy one of our books, so we can’t say fairer than that (and did we mention the free wine and cake?”)

Click here to get your tickets, and we do recommend that you book ahead. The Little Green Book Shop is a wonderful venue, but the clue is in the name. It’s little, and twenty people is a crowd.
