With my author hat on I attended the first East Anglian author fair at the end of July at the fabulous Coconut Loft Art Gallery on Waterloo Road. This gave locals an opportunity to ‘meet the author’  with twelve authors from across Norfolk and Suffolk, including: Helen Thwaites, Caroline Way, Hannah Precious, Ian Robb, Terry Tarbox, Pam Finch, Bronwen Grono, Jocelyn Blakey, Helen Milligan, Patricia Peters and Ann Bowyer.

The centrepiece of the event were five newly published authors who had risen to a ‘get published’ challenge set by themselves during a writing workshops last November. They formed the group Waveney Author Group (WAG) and go on tour later this month.

I’m looking forward to The  2nd Annual event which will take place next July and an interim ‘meet the authors’ weekend will be held at the Coconut Loft on the 5th & 6th Dec.

Author places are selling well, with only a few places left. For more information pop along to www.getwriting.co.uk

My work is saved in Word and then I save it in pdf, print it out and read it through. The best place for me to concentrate and do this is on the train or at my favourite art gallery and coffee shop. I don’t like coffee so very often have a cup of tea and a cake, they have a variety of cake and I usually choose the carrot cake or cheese scone. (Part of my author bio includes ‘eating cake’). Anyway, where were we? Oh yes…

After I have printed out I read through, write on it if needed and when I get home type up the alterations.

Some people read aloud but I haven’t tried this yet.

It is then time to send it out to my Beta-readers. I have two groups, one for my fiction work and one for my non-fiction.

My next post will be on choosing Beta-readers.
