Pulp Idol Firsts!

December 2013 will not only bring the usual merriment of Christmas and festive cheer, but also the publication launch of Pulp Idol Firsts 2013. This is a book filled with wonderful first chapters from up and coming writers, including myself, Clare Doran, and Sarah Tarbit. This will be an exciting event for not only those published within the book but also those who have made it possible. So, thank you to Writing On The Wall and the editors for great feedback. I would highly recommend next year’s competition to fellow writers, even to give yourself the confidence and belief you might need to progress with your writing.

There will be live music and cracking conversation at the launch as well as a chance to have a looksie at the end result.

12th December, Siren Cafe, 54 St James Street, Liverpool @ 7pm.

WoW! A Finalist.

Last month I entered a competition for first chapters in the Liverpool based literary festival, Writing on The Wall. I gave it a go for the experience of reading my own work aloud, which as I experienced is much more nerve-wracking than reading someone else’s. You also get to read in front of a panel of established writers who ask you questions regarding your novel. This was particularly useful for me as it got me thinking even further about where my novel could potentially go and where it would fit. It was a brilliant evening and I felt encouraged by the judges’ comments. Cormorano has some weight behind it and I am now more excited for its possibilities. I even found myself going through to the final, which will be held on the 25th May. An all round great experience.
