Members of Northants Authors have three events coming up this weekend.
Firstly, they have been invited by Moulton Theatre to talk about their writing (and books) on the evening of Friday, 25th November.
Then on the Saturday, they will have two stalls at a craft fair at Abington Park Museum from 11am to 4pm. Click here for more details.
So if you are local and interested in writing / reading, do come along!
Fellow Northants Authors member and children’s author John Scotcher runs the YouTube channel Chatterbooks and is running various episodes introducing his audience to a series of independent authors. We’re delighted to announce that Morgen is episode four… see the video below…
Seven members of Northants Authors were delighted to show their work at Weston Favell Library, Northampton between 5th and 8th September 2016.

So it’s now nearly a week since the Umbrella Fair and the dust has settled. We sold forty books between us which is more than some of us expected and less than others hoped, but everyone sold something so we’re chuffed.
What we learned was that we wouldn’t do open air events again where we have to book in advance. This weekend (20-21 August) was one of the wettest and windiest of the year so we spent much of the time trying to stop the gazebo from either flying away or ripping, or both. We failed, and the gazebo was too damaged to use on the Sunday so we blagged space in a neighbouring tent which was great except that we shared with a donated book stall so this, and the weather, meant we could have done better. We were also placed opposite a rock music tent which proved too loud at times, to the point where those browsing left after a few seconds.
Still, it was fun, we were all thrilled when asked to sign our books and that people we don’t know will be reading what we have put many hours into.
The pictures below show Christine… Joy, Morgen and Ryta… Heather (mentioned in Morgen’s chick lit novel The Serial Dater’s Shopping List) and Morgen, and our ‘blagged’ tent.
All the members of Northants Authors will be attending the Umbrella Fair at Kingsley Park, Northampton (the old racecourse) on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August. If there is a particular author you’d like to meet (and buy their book/s!), this is where we’ll be when…
