The image below speaks for itself, so let us have a closer look at this superb line up and (please note) both Saturdays are free!

New Street Authors are a highly talented and knowledge bunch who will entertain and delight. Not enough room to cover everything they do in a couple of lines here, so go to their website and have a look at what they do and what is coming up.

Pat Spence is a freelance author and former magazine editor who pens books with a supernatural twist – have a look her amazon page for a selection of her work.

Lucy Felthouse has her own website and has penned award winning stories. Even if her genre is not your style this lady is a pure delight to meet in the flesh (pun intended).

Jane Heron likes her dark horror and details of her books be found here

Ian Cawley is the author of Gnosis which features on his goodreads page

Simon Goodwin brings his self-confessed ‘geek’ to the table. Simon likes his fantasy and sci-fi and has penned and published stories of his own .

A.A.Abbott makes a welcome return, having guested for us twice before. A talented author, she pens addictive crime thrillers, and is part of the thriller panel which will undoubtedly feature some insight into something of her work.

Dr Sara Read featured at Tamworth Town Hall last year where she gave a fascinating insight into her book Maids, Wives and Widows.

Heide Goody has a smile to brighten any room and is with Iain Grant, co-author of the Clovenhoof Satan-in-suburbia comedy series and Million Dollar Dress on her own.

Rob Sinclair penned Dark Secrets, of which some 200,000 have been sold and there is talk of a sequel.

Sharon Rose is a local author with four books published so far. She says there is another on the way and is a delight to chat to.

Vivian Khan has also supported us before. At our What’s Cooking event in April 2016, Viv prepared a delicious chicken curry for guests and the students at Tamworth College.

Comic Book Guitars bring old guitars back to life in an ingenious way. Matt will demonstrate and perhaps even let you touch his E, G, B, D, or F strings.

Tamworth based book reviewer and blogger reviews a number of books each year. Perhaps one post will feature yours.

Beanstalk offer literacy support in schools and will be coming along to showcase what they do and look for volunteers.

With advice for would-be and existing writers from authors of virtually every genre, a thriller panel, free refreshments, books and comics, this is something you do not want to miss. Although it is free it will help if you register with the eventbrite website for either Saturday March 4th and/or Saturday March 11th.

Oh and one other person will be around, too. Me.
