The Tenby Book Fair is moving and Being Renamed…The Narberth Book Fair. Ta dah!!

narberth-logo-100

Welcome to the first post of the Narberth Book Fair.

Just to let you know that we have decided we have outgrown the Church House in Tenby.  Having searched around for a suitable place we have found the perfect venue. So the Tenby Book Fair will no longer be held in Tenby. In fact it will no longer be the Tenby Book Fair but the Narberth Book Fair. We are quite excited  to be having a new challenge and I’m sure we will be bigger and better… just in a different hall. In a different town.

From now on the Book Fair will be held at the Queens Hall there. Check out their…

How to Write a Book Review

janruthblog

book-reviews1

Authors are always clamouring for reviews. Some readers pen them automatically after they’ve read a book and have a ready-formed opinion bursting to get out, but a huge percentage of readers don’t bother. Some are not quite sure what it’s all about. And many readers are less than confident about sharing an opinion of something they’ve read, for fear of looking silly or uninformed. So here’s a quick overview of how to go about it.

WELSH WEDNESDAYS INTERVIEW with Author Julie McGowan

Another great Welsh author – it’s an inspiring landscape!

Welcome to another WELSH WEDNESDAYS interview. Today’s guest is Julie McGowan.

First, please tell us about your connection to Wales.

I was born and raised in the small mining town of Blaenavon in Monmouthshire, but moved to England when I was 11. My family and I (husband, four children, and my parents) were delighted to return to Wales 23 years ago, settling in Usk, where we still live. Having lived in various places in England, this was definitely the best move we ever made and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. In the intervening years the connection to my homeland never left me, as family holidays were always spent ‘going home’ and the vast array of aunties, uncles and cousins still in Blaenavon meant there was always a link to Wales.

Tell us a little about yourself as writer and as person.   TMB3_FrontCover-650

WELSH WEDNESDAY INTERVIEW with author Thorne Moore

Both Thorne Moores are highly recommended. This thoughtful interview gives the reader many clues as to why she writes so well.

writerchristophfischer

imagesI am delighted to kick off my series of WELSH WEDNESDAYS today. After exactly five months living in this beautiful country I made contact with a bunch of seriously talented writers. Today I’m starting with crime fiction author Thorne Moore.
thornemoore

Thorne Moore, born in Luton, went to Aberystwyth University to study history. She worked as a library assistant before setting up a restaurant in Pembrokeshire with her sister Liz. In order to pay for a law degree with the OU, she worked in various places – job centre, CPS, library – but prefers to be self-employed, best of all, as a writer. On Friday(25th), Thorne will be at Castell Henllys in Felindre Farchog, SA41 3UR for a ‘Tea with an Author’ session.

First up, please tell us about your connection to Wales.

I’ve lived in north Pembrokeshire for the last 32 years. A branch of…
