Local author, Julia Blake, is on a quest to find the perfect treehouse, and no, she hasn’t lost her marbles, as she explains – “I’m looking for one to feature on the cover of my next novel. It’s the follow up to the hugely popular romantic suspense, Lost & Found, and needs a treehouse on the cover. But, not just any old treehouse, it must be wooden, be a proper house, not just a platform, preferably have a balcony and look well-loved and played in.”
Do you have just the treehouse? Why not email a picture of it to Julia at firstname.lastname@example.org
Julia will contact the owners of the winning treehouse, and arrange for herself and local photographer, Kieran Elson, to pay a visit. The owners will receive a signed copy of the book and a £25 M&S voucher.
Julia is playing a very active role in the forthcoming Literature Festival, and, if there are any aspiring writers out there, why not attend her free Talk on her experiences getting published. Where she’ll be only too happy to pass on tips and advice, on pitfalls to avoid and shortcuts you can take, on the path to getting published.
The Talk takes place at Oakes Barn, St Andrew’s Street South, Wednesday 25th October at 10am. This is a free event, but spaces are limited, so come early.
Julia will then be staying at Oakes Barn to take part in the Writers Café at midday, where many local authors will be gathering to sell, sign and promote their books, and talk to people about their experiences as writers.
Although there’ll be copies of Julia’s books – “The Book of Eve” “Becoming Lili” “Lost & Found” and “Eclairs for Tea and other Stories” for sale, due to severe space restrictions, stocks will be limited, so, to avoid disappointment, Julia recommends pre-buying your book from Amazon and bringing it with you. Every book signed or purchased on the day will receive a free Julia Blake bookmark.
