From the Author's Mouth Event at Orewa library

A lively gathering today, as you'd expect when a bunch of authors get together! Some readings from published books, some talk from each author about how they came to be written, a few notes from Adrienne Morris on editing, proofreading, printing and Bev Robitai on epublishing and marketing - quite a snapshot of today's book world.

Pam Laird talking to the small but intent audience.
The staff at Orewa library looked after us and the rest of the audience well with tea, coffee and biccies afterwards. Roughly equal numbers of authors and listeners, and it was great to see some new faces. Hope everyone was inspired to keep (or start) writing!

  1. This was not a sales opportunity but a chance to make ourselves known to both readers and library staff. The fact that we kept mentioning the lack in libraries of Large Print books by New Zealand authors resonated with our readers and must have made an impression on the staff at Orewa Library. As Evan Andrews so wisely said, we are an ageing demographic and libraries must take that into account.
