I work at a charming community library in North Birmingham - Mere Green:
and I've been tasked with organising an author visit. Recently we had a visit from Judith Cutler and Edward Marston and other guests have included Maureen Carter and R J Ellory.
Before the author visit we reserve as much of their library stock as is allowable and have the books on the display, thus ensuring lots of issues (and associated public lending rights revenue).
So if any author reading this would like to get some extra publicity and meet some of their fans, please contact me. I'm looking to get someone for March, on a Wednesday am or pm or a Tuesday or Thursday evening ie after 7pm.
Doesn't have to be a crime author either so if you know someone who'd be interested, please pass my plea on!
