The Sea Scribes at the Charity Gig with local folk singers. The experiment seemed to work as those who attended said they enjoyed it. I don’t know how much exposure it gave to our writing group but we were pleased we could help the Parkinson’s Society and may do another one next year.
I hope the people who won our books in the raffle liked their prizes. There will be another of my novels out in June and I am about to plan the launch
I don’t have to find a photo from the library this time as I have one taken after our charity gig in aid of the Parkinson’s Society.
I was silly enough to let some of the Sea Scribes members who had organised the event leave the hall before I thought of having a group photo taken but I did grab some balloons and pose for this one, just to give everyone a laugh.
The singers were amazing, the readers were great and the refreshments were very welcome. I don’t know if we’ll have another one but it was a success financially with over 30 people attending and many of them asking about our books.
Well, old phone really. It is full with names and keeps cutting out. I need to swap numbers. I’ll let you know if it works but so far I’m not sure messages are getting through to me on the new one. It said I had 3 messages but I couldn’t find them, unless they were advertising stuff. I’ve tried to block that and we’ll see what happens when someone contacts me. I daren’t change over until I know how to work this one!
Charity Gig tonight and I hope I’ll have some pictures tomorrow.
A week of getting things ready. First, the novel. I still haven’t sorted all the spacing but I’m nearly there. I keep stopping to look for cover images because it’s more fun.
Then, the charity Gig. The Sea Scribes had a rehearsal on Thursday and we now have tickets and posters. On Sunday we go to look at the hall again. The Parkinson’s society are sending literature and balloons, the St Laurence singers are already ordering tickets, now to advertise ‘Music and Words’ with local musicians and writers on Saturday 12th May at St Botolph’s Church Hall, Worthing, 7.30pm.
I need to search out some more poems and we are seeing the folk singers on Sunday to check who is willing to perform. Wish us luck!
The Sea Scribes are planning a Charity Gig in aid of Parkinson’s with readings from the group mixed with songs and music from local musicians. It’s an experiment and we don’t know how many people to expect but we hope they will remember us and,maybe, be curious enough about us to investigate our books.
Being a bunch of local authors writing in a variety of styles and publishing in a number of different ways gives folk a choice of reading matter, fiction, non fiction, fantasy, romance, mystery, historical and crime.
Also, local musicians don’t always get the exposure they deserve and this will be an opportunity for the audience to relax and join in with familiar songs as well as hearing new ones.
Worthing is becoming a hub of home grown entertainment.
I have had to load my photos onto Google gallery to get them on here but this is the one I wanted you to see from the book show a few posts back. From now on I might be able to put the pictures with the text!
I wasn’t happy with the new theme so I have reverted to the old one. Now I have to check if I have lost anything. I’m going to have another go at the photos so there may be one on here from the Southern Book Show. No, it still won’t load but here’s a nice picture instead. I found it when I was looking for book covers but it’s the wrong shape.
