York Pub Meet Review by Jo Johnson-Smith

Well the wind was definitely howling outside the Brigantes pub last night, but the crowd inside made up for the cold outside.

We had several newbies who for their part found out just how much fun a bunch of writers and published authors can be, Alex did his usual wonderful job of comparing and with a lovely addition of name stickers so the usual dance of 'do I know you?' was stopped dead. 

Mark Turner was our first reader who treated us with the prologue to his second book, I'm not going to spoil it for you but if the prologue is anything to go by you'll have a wonderful time following the strings back to the centre. And that's all I'm going to say.

Allison Littlewood was next, and we were treated to a world of strangeness and wonder where the smallest thing can be of the greatest importance. Again I'm not going to do the spoiler thing but we got treated to a great story and a in depth question and answer session too about the process of writing too.

And last but not least the raffle where the new and old books come to find new homes and spread the best writing around, we came home with a few more and enjoyed the natter on the way home thankfully without the weather this time.

If you get the chance to go to either the York Meet or the Sheffield Meet, you'll be in for some fun and a chance to get the next best seller.
