After the [Book] A-fayre

“A wonderful opportunity to hear new work and chat with book lovers.” LK

It’s just over a week since the very first ‘KMC Book Fayre’ took place and, on reflection, it did well for a debut. The cold weather may have depleted the attendance a little, but it was nevertheless an affair to remember! There was plenty of mulled wine to warm the cockles for walking home and to stave off the winter blues.

“The day was made warm as much by the lovely atmosphere as by the excellent mulled wine.” DC

All our attending authors thoroughly enjoyed it, even finding time to socialise among themselves for a while, exchanging marketing techniques and discussing factors particular to their genres. For a few it was their first involvement in a literary event, so there were some that were nervous of presenting to an audience. However, the attendees were attentive during the authors’ talks and keen to chat with writers in the ‘meet & mingle’ section of the fayre. One author felt the best part of the afternoon was…

“To meet up with sympathetic and committed local writers who only live streets away from me and to find out that I am not alone in my endeavours. Cake was good as well!” SW

The talks were varied and entertaining, personalities creeping into the narratives and the applause were generous. By the end of the event, almost every author had sold books and there were requests for the date of the next Book Fayre. Much cake was had, along with lashings of laughter and a sprinkle of shared wisdom.

“I certainly enjoyed it. Every big thing began as a small thing. Onward!” MK

It’s safe to say immense fun was had by all at the ‘KMC Book Fayre’ and there will definitely be another in the form of ‘KMC Book-Fest 2019’. Special thanks is also extended to Kiss Me Cupcakes & Cakes for providing top quality refreshments as always and being very gracious venue hosts.

“Fascinating to meet so many contrasting, talented local writers in such a cosy, welcoming venue, many thanks.” LB

 

Here’s to KMC Book-Fest 2019!
