Eventispress Authors are on the road again!

Author Diana Jackson has been out and about this morning in Fife. She describes the event but also passes on some pertinent advice. She writes:

I enjoyed a warm reception at the Cupar Probus group this morning. There was an appreciative buzz in the audience as I gave my talk on

‘Early Women Aviators ~ Before and During WW1’

At the end I shared a video of some of the earliest planes of the Shuttleworth Collection, Bedfordshire, to give flavour to my talk and bring to life the daring feats achieved by these women in such fragile planes.

Although I sold a few books a remark made was that folks don’t take so much cash about with them these days, which is certainly something to think about if you are giving talks. Maybe us authors need to look into card readers.

In my less than organised state after lock down I also forgot to take my business cards ~ vital for leaving details for folks to look you up after the talk or get in touch with you.’

New Cover Release!

Search for the Pearl Inside Yourself

by Diana Jackson

A great little book of encouragement for a young adult, college or school leaver.

Author Diana Jackson continues to explores Post Covid Marketing Strategies ~ Getting back to author talks

Diana writes:

“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:

  1. Getting to know new readers and a wider audience
  2. Exploring themes related to my writing
  3. Sharing interesting ideas gleaned whilst researching, many of which do not get into my novels.
  4. 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!)”
  5. It is most enjoyable, especially the conversation afterwards.

Celebration of Book Launch just before the Lock Down

Author Diana Jackson was fortunate to be able to hold a wee celebration for the launch of her new novel

MISSING Past and Present

just before lock down.

Diana says, ‘it was a good-natured event, as all gatherings in Kinghorn are, summed up by fellow author and friend Hamish Brown who said,

“We will remember your celebration at Kinghorn Station Gallery fondly Diana,  as the last social event before lock down.”

The lovely thing is that out and about for our daily exercise we keep meeting folk (socially distancing of course) who bought a copy of the novel and they are full of praise for it.

“Couldn’t put it down,” said one.

“I had to stop myself from reading too much so that I could savour it. I looked forward to reading it everyday and didn’t want it to end,” said another. ‘

If you’d like to read Diana’s account on her own blog  then follow the link: www.dianamj.wordpress.com

MISSING Past and Present will be available to order through all bookshops as soon as is possible for the distribution to take place safely.

However, if you click on the link  Kindle version   then it will take you by universal link to the local Amazon site.

5***** review:

“This book is a different type of mystery read that is definitely one that should not be passed up! It brings two different murders into the plot, one of which is based on an actual murder that occurred in Bedford in 1919. The author then brings in a second murder, which takes place one hundred years later. These two murders have the reader constantly trying to make the connection and solve them before the characters do.

There are several characters that at first have no apparent connection to one another. However, as their personal paths are revealed you soon discover how each character has crossed paths with one another in some way. Trying to guess this as well as the ultimate murder connection, murderers and the motives make this a thrilling read.

There is much detail put into each character that they each fully develop while you get to know them. This book will make you feel like you are the detective while you enjoy all the surprises and twists as the story unfolds. A highly recommended book with a great ending!”
