The National Leather Collection is proud to hold its first Night at the Museum! for World Book Night. For one evening only, the museum will be open until late for a series of talks from Northants Authors (a co-operative of local writers) and a special exhibition of our rarest historical bookbindings. Our authors will be talking about their works, everything from historical fiction to horror and crime, followed by a Q&A. Whether you’re a book lover or budding author, this event is for you!
Tickets are £2 per person, and available for purchase on the door. Included in this price is entry to the exhibition, light refreshments, and a book of choice to take home from our secondhand bookshop.
Joy Burnett is the author of two books: a racy romance called ‘On the Loose’ and a collection of cruising-inspired short stories called ‘ All at Sea’. In this video, Joy is reading the opening from her novel. More details from www.northantsauthors.com and you can find her books at https://www.amazon.co.uk/joy-burnett/e/B00GVB1X3U.

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…
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.
