Authors available for your event!

Do you have a book club, social group or other gathering? Would you like speakers who are just that bit different?

There are nearly 30 authors within Northants Authors who all based – or connected with – the county, most of whom can come and talk at your event, sometimes at short notice.

We can tell you how we got writing, how we get our ideas (generally and / or for our books) or talk about the industry.

You can book one or more of us (we often do panels of four or five speakers).

Our charges are very reasonable, and we will bring our books with us so you can purchase signed copies… made out to you or for a gift!
