To celebrate the launch of Friendship Fails of Emma Nash, my brilliant new publicist Nina Douglas organised a panel event at Waterstones on the topic of writing friendships and relationships. I was joined by the amazing Kate Leaver (author of The Friendship Cure) and Katie […]
So excited that the second book in Emma Nash’s adventures hits bookshops today! Also, it releases alongside a fancy new cover for book 1. Now she’s done looking for love, Emma’s expecting life to be a breeze, but with all her best friends in relationships […]
This YALC felt pretty overwhelming (in a good way). I remember the first time I’d gone to YALC only two years previously, wondering if I’d ever be a published author or able to take part in a panel. This year, I was involved in something every day of the festival and I felt like I had to pinch myself.
First, I was on a super fun panel alongside Annalie Grainger and Chloe Coles, chaired by Beth Garrod, and ran a ‘funny writing’ workshop. I was also helping to run the Agents’ Arena, where we gave aspiring authors advice about all aspects of the submissions process and insights into the industry. It was an intense weekend and by the end I felt like I needed to sleep for a full day, but definitely worth it!
This Autumn I had the chance to meet the fabulous Amy and Rosy of The Riff Raff (and if you haven’t checked them out yet, do! They’re at https://www.the-riffraff.com/)
They run a London based writers community supporting and championing debut authors. I joined one of their regular nights where authors can go and read, and had a lovely chat with them on their podcast – which you can listen to here! https://soundcloud.com/user-881283567/the-riff-raff-episode-18-chloe-seager
Just after publication, I took a few days off with my Mum and we went on a trip around some places I’ve never been before in the UK (Reading, Bath, Cheltenham). On the way we stopped into various Waterstones and signed copies. It was so weird to see Emma in book shops for the first time, out in the wild, and (as you can tell from the photo) I think I got a little over excited…
