Hi all, before i do my own update for my book and tell you all about my experience of the author event i would like to tell you about the other amazing books and authors that were there.
I will share some pictures of them with there books at the end of the post, they are welcoming and and passionate about the books they have written.
First the lovely lady i shared my table with author Pauline Emsley she attended the event with her beautiful talented daughter who was truly amazing at the event helping to set up and organise, a little budding author herself working on her own story she is one to watch out for as a young author when she has finished her book.
She obviously gets her love of writing and reading from her mum, Pauline`s book is called `Rag doll Lost` lovely illustrations and a sweet little story, as a parent i know what it is like when your child loses their much loved toy so a fabulous little book to help children with that. It was a blessing to meet with them both and share the reasons for writing the books we wrote.

Next author was Teresa Harrison-best books she brought with her were Mackerel & the Jolly Daisy. Beautiful illustrated again she came to the event with beautifully crafted character`s always great in engaging kids with a physical representation of the character from the books. she also brought the other chapter book`Catawall! Fluent in feline
Another great looking book when talking to her about the reason for my book and my kids autism she shared a similar situation someone close to her is going through at the moment. you know this is the effect i was hoping that my book and speaking for the reasons behind it would do help others to feel someone out their is understanding their journey. It was a pleasure to swap details with her and offer a friendly ear if it is needed .
She did give me her contact details as soon as i find them i will ask for a link to her work.
The next lovely lady is Jo Baxter her book Viola Pumpernickel and the Emerald Lady from what i saw of the book at the event it is a must read from 8 up something i would definitely get to read with my kids .

http://www.nmurray.com on her journey she said their was not much to help first time authors get out their in our area so she made a way to help and wants very much to help other authors out so her site maybe a great one to check out.
So to finish off this author reviews and to help lift other newly published authors reach more of an audience this is why i wrote this blog.
Remember everyone starts somewhere they learn from what they do a long the way, their are moments they may like to change and do somethings differently, learning from experiencing it, It is hard work from start to Finished book. You also learn once that book is written and a physical copy is in your hand the real hard work starts, nerves may come and pop into your head as your putting your creation out their, but you deserve the best to happen for your book. the passion and dedication you have put in to that book will come across in what is written and to pass that on to a child is a gift, be proud that you done that.
Thanks to you all and it was a huge honor and pleasure to be in that room at that time showing my work along side all of yours
