This is the festival's first year and there are going to be panels and presentations and dramatic readings and huge amounts of fun.
Soph and I are doing two panels on the main stage, one on Sat at 4pm and one on Sunday at 12 noon and we will be in the 'everyone' panel both mornings as well.
Saturday's panel is called '"Self-publishing" or "Independent Publishing"' where we will be nattering on about the percieved differences.
Sunday's panel is called "Creating worlds and building audiences" and is just what it says on the packet.
Basically we're going to try and tell everyone the things we have learned as publishers and authors in the shark pond that is the self publishing world today.
We also have goody bags to give away with bookmarks, keyrings, sweeties and other nice things in them, and all you have to do is take the flyer with all the money off codes as well to get it - so win/win :).
If you are anywhere near the south east of the UK this weekend this is going to be a lot of fun, so come see us and all the other lovely people involved. It's only £1 to get in and under 14s go free.
Last year we created a book for All Hallows Read and this year we are continuing the tradition.
All Hallows’ Read is a Hallowe’en tradition. It’s simply that in the week of Hallowe’en, or on the night itself, you give someone a scary book.
It was started by Neil Gaimen and we think it is a wonderful idea. So Sophie and Tasha have each written a spooky short story and we have put them together in a book called In The Even of Death.
NEW FREE SPOOKY BOOK FOR HALLOWEEN
2 Short Stories
by Sophie Duncan and Natasha Duncan-Drake
Two short stories of the spooky kind created for All Hallows Read 2013.
This book is available free until 7th November 2013 and can be downloaded at the book link above or at Smashwords.
After that the price will rise and the free downloads below will be removed.
The Visitor by Natasha Duncan-Drake
Alice is spending the night in a dreary little seaside guest house, which is hell, and the last thing she expects is a late night visitor, the significant word being 'late'.
Ruderbaker by Sophie Duncan
Ellie meets Jack and he tells her and her friends a story of the ghostly, horror kind and sometimes stories have consequences.
We must apologise to users in the UK who usually purchase our books via Kobo or WHSmiths. These distributors are removing all "self published" books from their sites because a few unwanted porn titles ended up being returned in searches and a national newspaper made a huge thing about it.
Since we already distribute to these sites through Smashwords who have a very strict policy on marking adult content and not shipping content which breaks these sites' rules we do not see why our books should be removed and believe these sites are overreacting. However, there is nothing we can do about it at the moment.
We very much hope these sites sort themselves out soon and stop punishing all indie pubs for content which breaks their rules when in fact our titles do not. Until then, please accept our apologies and consider buying directly from Smashwords who offer formats suitable for all reading devices.
Thank you for your patience.
