Feedback from Publishers at the Festival of Romantic Fiction.

On Saturday 13th September, I went along to the ‘Meet the Publishers, Pitch a Novel’ session at the Festival of Romantic Fiction. I really enjoyed walking along the high street meeting authors at the book fair, then ascended the stairs to Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre.
Publishers from Harlequin UK Ltd, Simon & Shuster and Kate Nash Literary Agent were the knowledgeable panel providing helpful advice. Here are some comments made by them about the extract I read out from ‘A Perfect Place of Secrets.’ (A romantic extract!)

‘Beautiful Writing.’

‘Like a gentle caress.’

I was REALLY happy with that! Very encouraging and exactly the tone I want my writing style to be. I am now looking at the full manuscript for the second time, with CHARACTERISATION written right in front of me. Voice, voice, voice is the current scrutiny I am applying.

More to follow soon, lovely readers.

Kindest wishes,
Clairey
