Launch Photos, From Syria With Love

This time last week we were getting ready for what was a very special launch for ‘From Syria With Love’ at Waterstones in Brighton. The highlight of the night was a live video chat with a couple of the children living in the Al Abrar refugee camp in Lebanon, featured in the book (pictured below is Bayan).

Shadows in the Bookshop

Our highly anticipated anthology ‘Shadows on the Fens’  will be launched at 7pm on  Friday 30th September at Waterstones in Cambridge, accompanied by Autumn Nightmares– a special event celebrating the ghost story tradition in East Anglia.

Many great writers have set their finest ghostly tales in Norfolk, Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, and over 20 of these are contained in this anthology. Several of these tales have not been available for many years.

The anthology features three new stories too. These include Black Shuck the Devil’s Dog, by Piers Warren, who is the winner of a special competition we held with the Eastern Daily Press to find a local writer who is carrying on the region’s famous tradition of the ghost story.

Tickets for Autumn Nightmares are £4 (redeemable against the purchase of the book) and are now on sale from Waterstones’ Cambridge store and on its website.  Tel: 01223 351 688

This event, only really suitable for adult audiences, will feature actor Richard Holliss in the persona of M.R. James. (Montague Rhodes James was a distinguished academic who was based at King’s College Cambridge, and the author of what are regarded as the finest ghost stories in the English language). Author Piers Warren, and actor Robin Watson, who recently triumphed in a production of The Dresser, will be joining him to read a selection of stories with accompanying sound effects etc.

Autumn Nightmares – An Evening of East Anglian Ghost Stories. Halloween comes early this year when on September 30th, at Waterstones in Cambridge, the launch of Shadows on the Fens, Wayne Adrian Drew’s anthology of new and classic ghostly tales, will be marked by a very special event. Please be aware that there will be low levels of lighting and ghostly sound effects at this chilling theatrical series of readings designed only for adult audiences.

Publishing Event of the Year?

It is according to Waterstones, but we prefer the Daily Mash take on it. Or the Telegraph’s heart-felt plea that we don’t make fun of it.
