I had a great time yesterday at the Pop Art Tea Party in Kilmacolm Community Centre, hosted by Creative Communities. I had fun talking to the young people about my writing and the ideas behind my book ‘Follow Me’ and influences of the Pop Artist, Andy Warhol.
My favourite part of the day, (apart from eating cake and drinking pink lemonade), was when I got the young people to take part in a story-building exercise. Each of them was given a specific part of the story to create and it was amazing how it all fitted together at the end. I really hope one of them writes a book about Lucy and her enchanted house and mirror, as it sounded like an adventure packed with magic and suspense which I would love to read!
In other news, congratulations to Karen Mikusak who won a signed copy of Follow Me in the Book Bites giveaway promo!
I have also added an ‘Events’ page on to my website where I will post updates on up-and-coming events. Watch this space for more details on the Beacon Arts Book Festival in Greenock, which I will be taking part in at the end of August. Can’t wait for that one!
