Not long to go until my stop on the Scottish blog hop this Sunday, but after that I’m out and about closer to home, first of all to the not-so-sleepy Cotswold Village of Hawkesbury Upton now well and truly on the literary map since the inaugural literature festival last spring.To celebrate that event and give a boost go the next one, the founder Debbie Young (or T.I.D.Y, the Indefatigable Debbie Young, as I think of her!) has put together a taster of the writers who attended last year into the wonderfully named H is for Hawlesbury Anthology which we’ll be showing off and selling in a mini pop-up festival as part of the Hawkesbury Village Show. next Saturday, August 29th.
The book will also be available on Amazon (nice work, Debbie!) and I can do no better than quote from the description:
The text includes both fiction and non-fiction, ranging from historical and contemporary fiction to travelogues and self-help, from sinister thrillers to light-hearted humour. As in the festival itself, there is something to interest all kinds of readers and to encourage festival guests to try books beyond their usual comfort zone.
I seem to remember the cost is a mere £4. So if you can’t make the show you can still read the book, but if you’re anywhere within striking distance I would say that Hawkesbury is the place to be.
I also have it on good authority that the writing set will be easy to find – our pitch is next to the Pimms tent. Another very good reason to roll up and say hello.
