During the heady summer months our group takes a bit of time out. The buzzing summer tourist traffic makes our lovely little seaside town of Brixham a little too busy for us to attend our Thursday meetings at Brixham Library.
So do we rest on our laurels? Do we kick our heels and head for the beach?
I am afraid not.
Our talented author Kate Furnivall (Kate’s Page) is busy working on her next novel. An excitingly glorious story set in Italy in 1930’s – no spoilers and no clues, but we can’t wait to read it.
Ann Goring, one of the founders of the group, has been working hard writing short stories which can be read in Woman’s Weekly and Peoples Friend. They will be perfect for reading, sitting in the sun with a long cold drink.
Linda Mitchelmore (Linda’s Page), our ChocLit author, is getting great reviews for Red is for Rubies and new audio books of Hope for Hannah and Emma have just been released.
Tricia Maw’s (Tricia’s Page) novel No More Secrets is to be released by Accent Press later this month.
Michelle Heatley’s first novel Fish Soup is to be published very soon and has been busy writing short stories for Australian magazine Fast Fiction. (Michelle’s Page)
Of course we do relax sometimes and after a super summer meeting at Linda’s house, filling up with delicious scones, jam and clotted cream. Then we then took part in the annual quiz run by Matthew from Torbay Book Shop, coming a not so impressive third place, however it being the hottest day of the year our brains were over-cooked and unable to decipher literary anagrams!
Still we did take an authorly selfie.
