Great start to the new year with my first edition of THE BOOK CLUB with writer Sylvia Kent and writer/cake maker, Mara Cottrell.

Recommended reading from Sylvia is from a local author Piper Terrett. Piper’s book, VICTIM SUPPORT, is a thriller.  The book was launched last month and is doing very well. If you would like to purchase a copy you can buy from Amazon, Sylvia Kent or Piper’s website https://www.piperterrett.co.uk/

VICTIM SUPPORT… When twin boys go missing, DI Cree and her colleagues on the Norsey Force are already overstretched. Then, a student and an elderly woman are mysteriously gunned down and evidence suggests a sniper is at work.  In the background of each murder is an unsolved crime. Is revenge the motive or something deeper? Sam and her boss, Chief Inspector Bill Irons, face a race against time to find the missing boys and the killer before he strikes again.

The second book, which I recommended, is Deal Breaker by Harlan Coben. Its the first book in the Myron Bolitar series. ” Coben’s punchy dialogue, plots twists, team of fair and foul — including his shoot-from-the-hip, Yoo-Hoo-drinking protagonist who’s always cruising for a bruising — make the book hum

DEAL BREAKER “Investigator and sports agent Myron Bolitar is poised on the edge of the big-time. So is Christian Steele, a rookie quarterback and Myron’s prized client. But when Christian gets a phone call from a former girlfriend, a woman who everyone, including the police, believes is dead, the deal starts to go sour. Suddenly Myron is plunged into a baffling mystery of sex and blackmail. Trying to unravel the truth about a family’s tragedy, a woman’s secret and a man’s lies, Myron is up against the dark side of his business – where image and talent make you rich, but the truth can get you killed.

Mara Cottrell also has a book published, Basildon: a History & Celebration, a great coffee table book for anyone who is interested in local history.

ESSEX BOOK FESTIVAL

Don’t forget that the Essex Book Festival will be taking place https://www.essexbookfestival.org.uk/

You may notice some changes to the Book Festival for 2012. After 11 successive years as part of Essex County Council Library Services, Essex Book Festival has taken a new direction. With major support from Arts Council England and local partners, we’ve become a registered charity and are overseen by a new board of voluntary trustees, all with a shared love of literature. To see all the events that are taking place as part of this years festival, please see our events page.

The 2012 programme brings the usual mix of bestselling authors and exciting talent that Festival audiences have come to expect.  There are some new additions too, including book related crafts and writers’ workshops.  For younger audiences we’ve teamed up with the Just Imagine Story Centre to present a series of events from monster madness to animal adventures.  Best selling teen authors, Anne Cassidy and Karen McCombie will be visiting schools in the county and talking about their works.

Whether you are new to the Festival or one of its many friends, we hope that you’ll find an event to inform, inspire or to just sit back and enjoy.
