Workshop photos

I just wanted to post these photos of the workshop at Ashby Library last week  as part of the M&B  New Voices contest lead-up. As I said, the workshop was orignally fully booked but we managed to fit in another five extra people on the day.  Some of the pics are a bit dark because of the way everyone was sitting against the window but  from what I've heard, everyone had fun and learned a lot .
 Thank you to everyone for coming.

Special thanks too to Emma the librarian  who organised everything and made sure that it all ran wonderfully smoothly - so smoothly that no one left for almost an hour after the official closing date. Emma is already talking about inviting me back for another event - maybe for Valentine's Day so watch this space!

Other good news is that The Return of the Stranger is now at #1 in the Amazon  bestseller charts for Modern Romance - and, probably because of the New Voices Contest, the 12 Point Guide to Writing Romance is also selling pretty fast. Thank you to everyone who has bought a copy!

And talking of workshops - I think that there are still places available on the workshop in Haworth as part of the Bronte Society Festival of Women's Writing - details here or on my Events page.
