When do you write a review of a book? I am finding that if I write it immediately after I have finished the book it is very different from when I write it a few days later. In fact, if I leave it too long I have forgotten what the book was about.If I write as soon as I can the review is better that if I leave it until later. But is this fair? Surely the books that live in the memory should rate higher?
Now to try and find the launch photo.
I think I’ll have to go on twitter and see if I can find any teachers who remember the sixties as most of the people I used to chat to about writing have been lost to me.
Our workshop on “The Sixties” at WOW in Worthing is at the Ardington Hotel on Bank Holiday Monday, May 30th 2-4.30pm. Wendy Hughes will be guiding us through the era and some of the Sea Scribes will be reading from their books and answering questions about their writing. I’m lucky as “A Lesson for the Teacher” is set in the sixties, as you can see from the cover a few posts back.
It looks like we are getting a good number of replies for the launch on June 3rd. Now all I want are some reviews from the books I have sent out. I’ll be giving away a few copies in goodreads next month.
So sorry to all my followers. Now I have a new blog I can’t reach all the people I was following, either. I didn’t keep a written record of them all so I’m hoping they all come back gradually.
I promise to try to write about self publishing, writing groups, novels and poems and maybe if I tag them properly you will all find me.
A Lesson for the Teacher is going out to reviewers and the three of us who are having a book launch on 3rd June at the Swallows Return had a meeting there this week with coffee and fudge!(Nice touch)
