Writing She Voices

she-voices-women-writers  Funny, angry and very moving. Notes on a Page anthology launch by She Voices Women Writers based in Richmond upon Thames. Tales of daring, short stories, memoir, glimpses of history, poetry, a peek into a futuristic world — and that’s just the launch at Richmond  Library on the Green. Only joking… all that’s in the book; it’s really tea & cake on Saturday 3 December, 2 – 4 pm.

Come on along and meet a bevy of friendly, feisty authors in a little break from your holiday shopping. I’m honoured to be a guest writer within the pages, and former tutor of several of the anthologees. Including Camilla Reeve of Palewell Press and Margaret Whittock of Dark Mourne Press who have run and organised this fab book. Want to know more about the writing group and possibly join it?

Writing and gin

The joys of being a local author. Not sure what great grandfather Ephraim M (click here) would say, but he is coming with me to the start of the Chiswick Book Festival. And you can come too, if you can get to Waterstones, London W4 on Wednesday 14 Sept, 7-9 pm. The idea, organised by The Chiswick Calendar, is lubricated by Sipsmith, our local ginnery. Lots of local authors, loads of local readers, meet, mingle, and chatter.


The Chiswick Calendar by the way is doing wonders for the local creatives — vid-interviews with local authors, local photographers, local artists, whole galleries-ful. Plus of course weekly handsome newsletter of what’s on. And great daily local photos. Have a look Here.

Writing a book giveaway

… and figuring out how to get a Goodreads widget onto this blogsite. A) easy-peasy and fun, especially when you want to give a book (two books!) away to Goodreads’ huge bunch of avid readers. B) help!

So, you’ll just have to go to Goodreads to look for yourself. It has an author page, and of course a page on the book in question (The Extraordinary Dr Epstein). And if you are a writer and/or a reader and you don’t know Goodreads you are missing out on a very good thing. To go there, click here.
