CWG Meeting - 04/08/2014

Hi guys

How you all doing?

Well was a very eventful meeting at Cleckheaton Writers Group at Cleckheaton Library - keep it open!

Firstly when I arrived waiting was Pauline and ......... Stephen King!
He had heard about our online petition to save Cleckheaton Library and decided to show his face with camera crew in tow to highlight it's plight.  He also signed and gave me and Pauline his newest novels and did a hour writing course with us giving tips and advice and Agent contacts.!

Nope if only  - lol

I turned up about ten minutes late and only Pauline was there!  So we stayed till 6:30pm to see if any late arrivals then left.  Whilst there we chatted about what we was working on - I had blogged a few times - that's it I'm afraid.

Pauline was telling me about an Author she had been typing manuscripts up for who has landed a publishing deal  - His name is Harry Gallagher - his novel Poor Man's Gold is out NOW and meant to be hilarious - Harry is at Waterstone's in Leeds on Saturday 30th August to do a book signing 11:30am to 13:30pm.

Well after a no show myself and Pauline were bit annoyed as Pauline asked the staff if they had a petition to sign and they advised to go online to sign it - all very well but a lot of older readers who go may not be online or know about any petition as I didn't spot any notices up advertising it.

Oh well any Libraries with a writers group in the evening in West Yorkshire any one knows off let me know.

May not blog for a week as Saturday off to sunny Cleethorpes with the daughter.!

See ya folks

  1. Yes we knew you were in Tenerife, Karen, you said at the last meeting you'd be away, also Laura gave her apologies at the last meet. Dawn emailed her apologies at six, but nothing from anyone else. Still Neil and I had a good meet if only for a short while. Hope you had a lovely holiday. See you on the 18th. Love P x
