Beacon Literary Festival by Hywela Lyn
|There were several local authors present at the book signing table, and it was lovely to chat with them and with the visitors of course. To my surprise I sold six books which made the day even more worthwhile.|
There were also two book panels, chaired by another local author, and member of the Chiltern Writers Group, to which I also belong, and there were some interesting and lively debates in response to some of the visitors' questions.
There was a ghost story contest for local children which I was honoured to be asked to judge. Not an easy task except for the First Prize Winner whose story was so well structured and original it really stood out. I hope the contest will have encouraged the youngsters to carry on writing and using their imagination, and will hopefully have instilled in them a love of reading as well.
Homemade cakes were available for a very reasonable price considering the size of the portions, as well as tea, coffee and fruit juice etc.
Altogether a very successful and enjoyable event, especially as it was the first time such an event has been held in the villages, and I look forward to attending again next year.

Just been to your blog - hope Angel's better now. My 'Bouncer-dog'has a similar 'warwound' after removal of a small growth! He can't quite reach it to pull the stitches, very frustrating!
And goodness, we might have passed in the street and never known it ... give me a shout if you feel like meeting up for a coffee somewhere sometime!
