Thank you to all who attended our self-publishers’ launch which took place at the Morris Hall, Shrewsbury, last Thursday 8 December. If self-publishing companies could travel at the speed of rockets, we’re already on our way to Mars or Venus. Writers with books on local and family history, philosophy, religion and fiction attended, and discussion flowed easily from Bob Fowke’s talk – of which our blog contains a condensed version. Unfortunately, we’re unable to declare a winner to the Potential Book Raffle – plenty of books for us to work on, but no raffle synopses. Maybe there’s a sanctuary for potential books on Venus, when we get there.
