Lucy Robinson is the best-selling author of four critically-acclaimed novels: The Day We Disappeared, The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me, A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger and The Greatest Love Story of All Time, all of which are published by Penguin.

Prior to writing Lucy worked in theatre production and then factual television, working on documentaries for all of the UK’s major broadcasters. Her writing career began when she started a blog for Marie Claire.

Lucy’s talk to Novel Nights:

Lucy will share her experiences of being published, her thoughts on remaining inspired as a writer as well as the submission process.

Do authors need to be on social media? What is the relationship between blogging and book sales? Should you invest in writing courses or an MA? What is the publishing landscape like and is it possible to make money from literary fiction. Have you ever heard of the up and coming ‘book-club market?’

Lucy’s talk will touch on these subjects and she’ll answer questions from the audience and read from her latest novel, ‘The Day we Disappeared.’ Tickets on the door. During the first half there are short readings from Mel Ciavucco, Paul Deaton, Angela Brooks, Kevlin Henney and Mar Rutterford
