Random News: Bold Strokes Book Festival, UK

Hello Lovely Readers,

So today I wanted to let you know about a rather neat event that is happening this weekend in Nottingham. On the 7th and 8th of June (this weekend) it will be the 5th Annual Bold Strokes Book Festival. I went last year for the first day and had a great time, and I will be there again for the first day this year (trains just don’t work for making it on Sunday). It is a great event for anyone interested in LGBTQ literature. It is a great chance to mingle with authors and editors from the company. Even better is there are book pitches for aspiring writers to try and get their books published. And I found a great place for new bloggers to start talking to other people who love books.

I went last year without knowing anyone, and made some very great friends. The whole group is rather welcoming, and it isn’t too large that you will feel lost in the crowd. There are plenty of books for sale so you can check out what sorts of work BSB publishes, and last year many authors read excerpts from their newest or upcoming books. Plus Nottingham is a nice place to just wander! You can check out more information on the link above of the flier below!

Let me know if any of you are going to be there! Or if you have any questions about the event (if I can’t answer I know a couple people who can!)

Until next time,


About Lynne

I am currently a PhD student of Forensic Psychology, which may explain the off mix of extremely morbid books sitting next to children’s books. Hailing from the Midwest in the United States of America, I have now lived in England for over 2 years (which will explain any strange grammar usage). From a very young age, my parents cultivated a love of reading, and never restricted what I read. When I reached middle school I began reading Shakespeare (a lifelong love affair), but had also discovered the wonders of young adult fiction. While the world may now expect me to read books more reflective of my age, I have fought this and am a strong supporter of the YA novel! Despite having very little free time, I still sets aside time for a reading every evening, and listens to books on my way to University. I dream of one day being a published novelist and published scientist!
