How wonderful to have a book event in Manchester and better yet an invitation from Headline to attend
An event to celebrate the launch Headlines New Voices 2018. Down in the bowls of Lock 91 we gathered. Writers, publishers, booksellers, bloggers – book folk gathering to talk about books specifically five new books arriving in 2018 – we were were generously given food, drink and five book proofs. On a night many would prefer to be tucked up at home we had gathered not only from Manchester but several had travelled from further afield and, of course, our five writers and publishing team had travelled from London via Edinburgh to Manchester.

The Tall Man by Pheobe Locke – ‘Introducing her dark and chilling crime-thriller….. it is an unforgettable blend of spine-tingling chills and paranormal suspense which will leave you checking the corners of your bedroom at night….. addictive blend of dark psychological suspense and spine-tingling chills, …. set to be the thriller of the summer.’ Will be published in hardback and ebook 14 June 2018. #THETALLMAN
Here they are: Leo Carew, Nick Clark Windo (back row) and Karen Hamilton, Pheobe Locke and Guy Gunarante (front row).
Their books can be pre-ordered, which is a great thing to do. So if you think that one, or more, or all might be up your reading alley go to your favourite bookseller and give New Voices 2018 a warm welcome.
With thanks to Headline Publishing and their wonderful team for bringing this event out ‘to the sticks’ and for the invite – it was a terrific evening.
