Join me (and hopefully others) at this very exciting event for writers and authors.

They have assembled a mega-list of authors, agents and publishers involved, including:

Patrick Brown, Director of Author Marketing | Goodreads

Porter Anderson | Journalist, Publishing Perspectives
Ben Galley, ShelfHelp | Self Publishing
• and many, many more!

Will you be able to join us? If there are enough of us, I'll happily get a special LWC session added into the day's program. Whoop! You can RSVP to this meetup for free but please book your ticket via

Please use 'LAFLWC' to get £20 off your ticket so I know who's in from our group. Thanks a million!

    Difficult to hear in workshops, but otherwise a great event.

    Would have loved to have gone but I don't really have a novel to talk about! Just some chapters.

    In any case I see that it's full up.

    Hope someone writes a report of the day.
