12:30pm-2:00pm – KEEPING IT REAL: WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW with Andrew David Barker
Tickets £5, spaces strictly limited – book early to avoid disappointment!
The old saying among authors goes, 'write what you know'. That might be easy for certain kinds of fiction, but how do you 'write what you know' in crime, fantasy, science-fiction or historical fiction? This session will show you how to apply that classic writing maxim, and use your own experience and knowledge to help create compelling stories. Join Andrew David Barker – author of the stunningly emotional and personal novel THE ELECTRIC – for a session exploring your voice and your stories.
2:30pm-3:30pm – BOOK LAUNCH: THE ELECTRIC
Tickets £3, redeemable from purchase of any Boo Books title
The Electric is a cinema like no other. The spirits of Hollywood's greatest stars enjoy their final turn on celluloid, watched eagerly by an audience of ghosts...
Derby's independent press, Boo Books, is proud to present Andrew David Barker's The Electric, a stunning coming-of-age tale and modern ghost story. When schoolboy Sam Crowhurst stumbles across The Electric, a place that holds a terrible and beautiful secret, his life will be irrevocably changed. In the last days of Summer 1985 he will find out more about life – and the afterlife – than he ever through possible...
Join us for an informal afternoon reading and Q+A with author Andrew David Barker and editor Alex Davis, with copies of this stunning limited-edition title available for sale on the day.
FANCY JOINING US FOR THE WHOLE DAY? JUST £10 FOR ALL THREE SESSIONS!
For more information, or to book your places, contact boobooks@hotmail.co.uk or call Alex on 07896 228367
