Have you got a book in you? Have you ever dreamed of being a published author? If the answer is yes, then Philip Bell from Beachy Books will be at Cowes Library on Saturday 14th March between 10:30 and 13:00.

He welcomes members of the public to drop in and have an informal chat about how to get published.

They’ll also be a chance to buy Beachy Books and meet Shirley Adams, one of the author’s Philip has helped get published. Shirley will be reading her rhyming picture books and running a mask-making craft activity in the Cowes children’s library from 10:30 to 11:30. It’s free!

Cowes library supporter’s group will be providing cakes and refreshments. There will also be a selection of Beachy Books for sale including children’s books, poetry and Isle of Wight history.

Philip is a published author himself, most notably by Walker Children’s books, having had his story chosen by former Children’s Laureate, Michael Rosen.

Philip says:

“I know what it’s like to be a struggling author. I feel all the highs and lows along with the authors I work with because I’m a writer too. I’ve developed a thick skin over the years from countless rejection letters. But then one day, after all the hard work, I got published!

“If you have a book in you then come along to see if I can help you get it published”.

UPDATE – Shirley Adams is unable to attend Saturday’s event and therefore no children’s activities or storytelling sessions will be running. However, Philip will still be on hand to offer publishing advice.

I have a great book written by a family member but it is of the Enid Blyton characters of the ‘Famous Five’, having an adventure at Knighton Gorges, at Newchurch.

Sadly the book cannot be published as apparently the Enid Blyton books are still in copyright, so I guess no hope for it to see the light of day?
