Leominster Book Fair


Last Saturday we were in Leominster’s Grange, a gorgeous historic building close to the town centre. We’re pleased to say that our Sat Nav negotiated the narrow streets to perfection — unlike friend Malcolm Havard’s, which sent him down a cul de sac.


The Alchemy Press table was shared with the Penkhull Press, which publishes Malcolm’s First Book of Gabriel, a humorous take on world creation (and many other things!). Both Jan Edwards (Leinster Gardens and Sussex Tales) and Malcolm read extracts during the afternoon.

Yesterday — Sunday 26 April — we made our way down the M6 to the PowWow Festival of Writing, held in the garden (under canvas, which helped shade us from the brilliant sunshine!) of the Prince of Wales pub in Moseley, Birmingham. The event was superbly organised by Andy Killeen and his team.

We had a stall that showed off many of our wonderful titles. Peter also took part in a panel discussion of the way publishing is changing in the digital age.

Check out our new events page — when and where we’re at (!!!).
