  • SilverWood Books - News: 'Girl Cop in Trouble' Kickstarter Campaign
    diary of speaker events where I tell the story behind Girl Cop together with how I managed to get my book into print plus tips from my marketing strategy I was particularly excited to be invited to speak at both the Bristol and Bath Literature Festivals and will be appearing at the Bath Festival again next year The feedback from my talks shows that there are many other people out there who have that book burning inside My plight seems to strike a chord as I try to convey how I juggle my work and family whilst trying to find time to write Girl Cop in Trouble is due for release in mid November and I am running a crowd funding campaign with Kickstarter from September 1st which allows people to pre order the book The campaign also offers lots of other Girl Cop related goodies and includes the opportunity to attend the launch with an overnight stay and a meal for two at Jamie s Italian Restaurant And one lucky backer even has the opportunity to have a character in the book named after them This is my first experience of crowd funding I reached the first half of my target easily in the first week of the 30 day campaign but the second half is proving harder to fulfil I am having to work hard reaching all corners of my social circle and spending a lot of time on social media in an uphill battle to reach that target The two books are fictional rom coms loosely based on Sandy s experiences as a young constable with The Avon and Somerset Constabulary Sandy donates a percentage of her book sales to the Police Dependants Trust and St Peter s Hospice in honour of her late colleague Andrew Cuff

  • SilverWood Books - News: Me: Writer | Esme: Character
    a mystery inspired by genealogy With family history offering such a wealth of information to draw on the opportunity to write a series seemed obvious But writing a series presents its own set of challenges not least to create a character with the potential for more than one book and likeable enough for the reader and me the writer to enjoy spending time in their company I don t write long descriptions as for me the best characters can be summed up by choosing the right name noting one or two physical characteristics and then the most important part by actions and behaviour The reader only needs these few key pointers and they ll fill in the rest to their own satisfaction My protagonist Esme Quentin is someone who s driven to get to the truth It s a passion which has led to a particular traumatic incident in her past but it s a trait she finds difficult to curb Despite being as vulnerable as the next person and being in no way fearless she can t help but do what she feels is the right thing regardless of the consequences At the start of Blood Tied Esme is trying to put the past behind her by choosing the supposed safer option of becoming an historical researcher rather than remain in the contemporary world of investigative journalism But as she discovers uncovering the past is not as benign as she imagines After Blood Tied was published I was overwhelmed with readers enthusiasm for Esme One reviewer liked that she and her friend Lucy were ordinary women with no particular skill when it comes to crime fighting another applauded Esme s tenacity and generosity of spirit and another said she d love to have Esme as her best friend While

  • SilverWood Books - News: The Faery Tales Book Launch
    a hundred people showed up for this special event in a building that was transformed to reflect the magical setting of the stories Melanie says I was keen for the whole evening to be a celebration of writing and the arts in general I m a Performing Arts teacher at Horizon College and so I invited many of my Dance Music and Drama students to perform faery inspired pieces for the audience The Young Writer s Group who are also based within the school had their own stand where they displayed the novels they had been working on and they enjoyed having the opportunity to discuss their ideas and inspirations with a wider crowd Guests were in for a treat as they entered the reception area which had been lavishly decorated as a faery wonderland Live music from pianists and singers set the scene and beautiful girls dressed as faeries offered pink wine and sparkly cupcakes on silver trays At set intervals pixie ballet dancers leapt in and around the visitors and Melanie was of course at hand to sign copies of her book with personal messages There was a real buzz of excitement as local press arrived to take
