Lucy McCarraher: On Demand

At The Assembly House this evening, Norwich Writers' Circle's 2009/10 programme continued, in a packed Sexton Room.

Our latest meeting featured Lucy McCarraher, who discussed her writing career to date, and how she became an author.

Lucy described to us how her previous publishing experiences with Macmillan led to her books being sold over the internet. The visiting writer stated that she believed that print on demand was the future of publishing, due to the amount of control it gives the author. The only downside to being published using POD is that, once your book has been published, and for any chance of success, you must be prepared to organise the promotionial work yourself.

The evening ended by Lucy taking part in a Q&A session, which gave visitors and Circle members the opportunity to ask questions raised by the author's interesting talk.

Esther Morgan will be hosting a Poetry Workshop at our next meeting on 3rd November. We hope to see you then.
