Ink Tears Launch



On December 9th Ink Tears are launching Melanie Whipman'a short story collection, Llama Sutra and my own When Planets Slip Their Tracks will have its (slightly belated!) launch at the same time!

The event takes place at The Sun pub in Covent Garden from 7.30 until 10.30 in the evening and both Melanie and I will be reading excerpts from our collections.

We would love to see you there for a glass of wine to celebrate the occasion.

  4. I missed this, Joanna. I hope the evening went well and that you and Melanie had a great time. Do let us know how it went. What's it like reading your own work in front of an audience? Is the experience of an immediate response a positive one or do you prefer reading reviews and emails from your readers? You have had an incredible year, Joanna - many congratulations! Long may your success continue and grow. Wishing you a lovely festive season.

    1. Thank you so much, Nicola, for all your lovely kind words. I had a lovely evening and I'll put up a blog post today with pictures. I love reading to an audience. Reading aloud, even just to myself at home, is one of my favourite things to do. Audiences can vary as to how responsive they are - earlier this year I spoke and read at one event where a man in the audience was engrossed in his mobile phone all the way through! - but generally the response is heart-warming and afterwards people are interested in so many aspects of the process - how and where I write, where the ideas come from and whether the well ever runs dry. It's strange how I love talking about it to people, even though I'm normally very shy. I guess it's because it's such a big interest for me that it's exciting to be in a position where I can ramble on and on about it! Thank you so much for all your support this year, Nicola. I hope I can catch up with everyone's blogs this week now the launch is over. xxx
