Blood Will Tell

Reading in London

In November, I took part in my first public reading. The event was organised by Novel London, which brings together writers and book lovers at monthly events across the capital.

The theme of the evening was debut writers with international backgrounds. I qualified on the grounds of having lived in France - in a haunted apartment no less  - and setting part of my novel in Slovenia.

The Woman Behind the Waterfall, a literary fairy tale set in Ukraine, was read by Leanora Meriel. Mari Reiza, originally from Madrid, was reading from her novel Marmotte’s Journey.

The readings were introduced by another writer, Stephen Marriott, author of Candyfloss Guitar. And even the organiser, Safeena Chaudhry, is a writer – her novel, Companions of Clay, was published in 2015.

So if you're a London-based book lover make a point of heading to the next Novel London event and supporting debut and emerging novelists - you won't be disappointed.
