I’m doing a big promotional event at South Shields Library from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday the 13th of February 2010 with Judy Astley, Benita Brown and Elizabeth Chadwick. This is the first big event I’ve been involved with organising so I do get a bit of a squirm in my tum when I think of it … But it will be lovely!
The programme includes how LOVES ME, LOVES ME NOT came about and panel discussions concerning what we all read and what makes a good romantic novel, as well as coffee time meetings with each author. Benita Brown writes absorbing sagas set in her native North East England, Elizabeth Chadwick stirs the blood with her historical fiction and Judy Astley writes fabulous romantic comedies. So it should be a great event with something to interest everyone!
I love library events because they’re such good value for the reader – and I just love being with readers.
