Being Published – Does it Change Your Life?


Event Details

There are traditionally published authors, self-published authors, and other routes in-between. Some authors go more than one route. But what’s it really like to see you work in print? Does the work stop there? Will it REALLY change your life? Come join these writers’ discuss the pitfalls and challenges of publishing.


Frances Evesham is the author of a series of murder mysteries set in Exham-on-Sea. In each of the eight books in the series, the mystery centres on an important place in Somerset, from Glastonbury Tor to Cleeve Abbey. Frances has now sold over half a million copies, and the books are currently under option for a potential TV series. 

Her second series, The Ham Hill Murder Mysteries, is also set in Somerset and includes three stories: A Village Murder, A Racing Murder and A Harvest Murder.

Frances also writes for children, and her dyslexia-friendly story, Dragon Ring, is set in Bristol. She loves to hear from readers. Check out her website, where a free short story is always available: https://url6.mailanyone.net/scanner?m=1pqzDa-0001oi-5z&d=4%7Cmail%2F90%2F1682353800%2F1pqzDa-0001oi-5z%7Cin6a%7C57e1b682%7C26562277%7C13531357%7C6446B0AE5CBF2D2BD9E029654DBEEF7E&o=n.wweracwfmesecha.vspsbn%26.mo&s=aJ24NuaE_1NgW2g6xw2OKfMD8gw;

Exham on Sea is based on Burnham on Sea, where Frances has lived happily for over twenty five years, collecting poison recipes and grandchildren. 

Edward Burley has always been fascinated with human behaviour. What makes people do what they do? Combining a lifelong love of literature and a degree in sociology, Edward looks to explore these themes beginning with his debut novel Blame. Edward lives in the south of England with his wife, two children and healthy guitar collection.

Jonathan Pinnock is the author of two short story collections, one slim volume of poetry, a memoir and several novels. His latest book ”Last Chance in Vegas” is the fifth in his popular Mathematical Mystery series of laugh-out-loud comic thrillers set in a murky world of murder, mystery and complex equations.
