Festival Day 16

Kick back in that patio chair – it may be the last time you get the chance to sit outside this year!  It’s the penultimate day at the Festival which comes to you and we have a packed line up as ever.

AND as a special treat we have no fewer than FIVE ebooks on free offer today. All of them are reviewed in the Writers Reviewing Writers slots and the free ebooks are:  The Secret Commonwealth and Burns on the Solway by Catherine Czerkawska, Bill Kirton’s The Figurehead, Janice Horton’s Reaching for the Stars and Cally Phillips’ The Threads of Time.   What’s stopping you? Check out the reviews, then use the Author’s Festival Page to find buying links – or just go straight to Amazon.

And then you can come back to the festival: Starting at 11.15 am with a Short Story. Today it’s Just Nod if you Agree by Alasdair McPherson. 

At 12.30 our penultimate Writers Piece is shared with you by Carol McKay. Better than your Sunday lunch.

At 3pm Cally Phillips reviews three contributors to ‘Auld Lums/New Reeks’ in Writers Reviewing Writers. Each of these are ‘new’ in that they have only one ebook credit to their name just now, but we are eagerly anticipating their follow ups very soon.  John Logan, Rosalie Warren and Carol McKay are the writers reviewed.

At 5pm we welcome Authors Electric  to the @theFestival Slot. Several of the featured writers at the festival also blog for Authors Electric which is a community of indie writers who have taken the epublishing ‘plunge’ and offer a daily blog of their experiences.  Sue Price gives us her take on the question Do Authors Dream of Electric Books?

At 7pm in Beyond Fiction Cally Phillips gives a very personal view of blogs in Focus on Blogs providing a kicking off point for you to think about the hows, whys and wherefores of this most current of publishing formats.

At 9pm Dan Holloway offers another poem. Today it’s Monsters and that sends us into the long night.

But be sure and come back for tomorrow’s final day. There will be all the usual stuff plus a festival round up and some FREE give-aways!  Don’t miss it. By Tuesday it’ll all be a thing of the past and the world will have moved on.
