February and March will be brightened by several events featuring Cultured Llama authors. There are book launches of Unauthorised Person by Philip Kane (Rochester 21 Feb) and The Strangest Thankyou by Richard Thomas (Totnes 5 Feb, Plymouth 9 Feb), an evening of ‘Lurve’ on Valentine’s Day with Maggie Harris, and an event, on 16 March, where authors from the anthology Unexplored Territory will be reading at a bookshop with beer in Broadstairs (very popular with our authors, that one). Most of these events have live music and an open mic for poets. Read more about these events by clicking here.
Reviews and comments on some of our books are always welcome:
