As many of you know, part of my day job is writing books. And as many of you also know, I set up Northern Lace Press to publish Centenary Stitches.
Through Emergents, a Scottish grant-awarding arts organisation, I have been given a place at the Indie Authors Fair in Foyles on Friday. I am taking copies of Centenary Stitches with me, and the prototype of Exploring Shawl Shapes, my next book.
This will be a different event for me, as I will be sharing space with other Scottish indies who write fiction. It is the first time I will have done a non-knitting event, and I am looking forward to it.
The other people on the Emergents’ stand are
Orla Broderick with her book The January Flower
Max Brossin with his book Bloody August
Flora Kennedy with her book The Wild Folk
LG Thomson with her book Boyle’s Law
John AA Logan with his book The Survival of Thomas Ford
Angela M Formby with her book Syrian Coffee
If you are in London on Friday, 17th April, between 4.30 and 7.30, do come to the 6th floor of Foyles bookshop. The Fair is free to the public with a drinks reception, goodie bags etc. You will be able to look at (and buy!) Centenary Stitches, and see the new mini shawls book before anyone else.
And you will also have access to some great fiction too!
