“Like author Brian Kerr, I am beginning to give author talks once more. In fact, with Zoom, I did not totally pause these activities, giving two talks during the pandemic.
I have two bookings for this year, one later this month and another in November. Nothing like the five I did in 2019 before the first lock down, but it is early days. We are also only just coming out of mask wearing towards the end of April up here in Scotland, and so we don’t have quite the same sense of normality that those down south are enjoying.
I have two themes at the moment:
- Coincidences in the life of an author
- Early female aviators and other interesting flying facts
These talks have so many benefits:
- Getting to know new readers and a wider audience
- Exploring themes related to my writing
- Sharing interesting ideas gleaned whilst researching, many of which do not get into my novels.
- Hopefully selling some books too (I usually give a special offer and round the price to the nearest pound for ease of change giving. At first I took a bag of pound coins and pennies for £8.99, but decided very soon that it was a bit silly!)”
- It is most enjoyable, especially the conversation afterwards.
“If you would like any of out authors to give a talk you could get in touch with us at Eventispress:
or click on the author page and contact each directly. “
