A pre-London Book Fair meet-up


Glynis Smy, Jessica Bell, me, Talli Roland

Energised by meeting a terrific group of other writers last night. No, ‘energised’ is not a euphemism for hangover. The atmosphere really did fizz. Writers are used to listening, observing and absorbing, and they are genuinely interested in each others’ progress. And, of course, their problems and successes.

And as lonely creatures, musing and tapping away at our keyboards we like to get out sometimes…

We are never at a loss for a subject, whether the hard work and mess of combining motherhood with book deadlines, time distortion, revising and editing work, talking genres, comparing pies in front of us, uploading books, ALLi’s Open Up to Indies launch, the pull between writing and promoting, our book fair schedule, flights, SilverWood Books, comparing cameras on phones – you see how it goes…


Alison Morton is the author of Roma Nova thrillers, INCEPTIO, and PERFIDITAS. Third in series, SUCCESSIO, is now out.
