The January meeting of Anderida Writers has been postponed from Tuesday January 9th and will now be held the following week instead on Tuesday January 16th at 7.30pm. It will be in the Garden Suite of the Hydro Hotel in Mount Road, Eastbourne, BN20 7HZ.
One advantage of having it a week later is that Anderida’s patron and international best-selling author Tamara McKinley, whose books written under Ellie Dean have sold countless thousands of copies, should be able to able to attend and give advice.
Chairman Tony Flood says: “Tamara is currently nursing a broken arm following a fall, and we all wish her a speedy recovery.”
The meeting on January 16th will enable members and guests to read extracts from their work (up to 600 words) and have it critiqued by those present. Members will also be encouraged to state what they want the group to provide for them in the coming year.
At meetings in 2024, Anderida’s published authors will be able to take it in turns to bring along their books and offer them for sale by prior arrangement with chairman Tony Flood. Alex Hudson is the first author to take advantage of this by bringing her three books and reading an extract from one of them on January 16th.
Alex’s Redemption trilogy is set in Georgian England and tell of intrigue, endurance, dark secrets and revenge.
