This year the team at Chicken House upped sticks and headed to London where they hosted two days of intensive author training to bookend their annual brunch party.

During day one, Justin Somper and Amy Finegan guided authors through the creation, management and delivery of author events in schools, libraries, festivals and bookstores. On day two, the social media whirlwind that is Anita Naik and myself focused on brand-building, digital reach and long-term social media strategy.

L to R: Dan Smith (Big Game), Sophia Bennett (The Castle), Jeannie Waudby (One of Us), Catherine Doyle (Vendetta), Lisa Drakeford (The Baby) and PJ Norman (AuthorProfile). Also present were Linda Davies (Longbow Girl), Kieran Fanning (The Black Lotus) and Chris Callaghan (The Great Chocoplot).
