The writers showcasing at our March 13th 6×6 have been selected! It was a tough choice picking just six from the file, with competition as fierce as ever, but without further ado – listed alphabetical order by author – here is our final pick:
‘Letter from America’ by Lisa Culligan
‘Shadows on the Grass’ (Extract) by Misha Herwin
‘The Ducking Phone’ by Kenneth Kay
‘The Sprout and I’ by Lynn Smith
‘A Treasure Lost’ (Extract) by Sherrie Lowe
‘Holiday from Hell’ by Pauline Woodhouse
As regulars will know the main aim of 6×6 is to allow writers from across the region the opportunity to showcase their work, so we are especially pleased to see not one but two books being promoted. Remember to bring your wallets because these titles will be available to purchase at the event!
Many novels, particularly the lengthier multi-volumes in the fantasy field, are packed with characters, some major, some minor, others appearing so intermittently that they can be easily forgotten. Many readers will remember a full cast list with no problem; they simply go with the flow and, especially with a well-written story that has an engaging narrative, hardly ever need to check the list of characters, or dramatis personae. Nevertheless, having something that can be referred to when you’re unsure just who is who can be invaluable. Think Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones and you can see what I mean. Or you may be reading mainstream or crime or any other genre: the arguments for the dramatis personae may still apply.
