Manchester Author Signing

On Saturday 13th August, I took part along in the inaugural Manchester Author Event and Gig held  at The Red Rose Steam Society in Astley Green, Manchester.

Waiting for the doors to open!

A total of fifty authors took part and showcased their books.  I met some very talented authors, including Amanda Green, Isabelle Cate, Ian D Jackson, K L Shandwick, J F Holland, Victoria Blisse, and Laura Morgan, and many more.

Amanda Green
Creative artist, Annabella was there with her stunning designs made from book pages, and Maria Lazarou was present, showcasing her design services for authors.

Next year's event is scheduled to take place over two days - 19th and 20th August.  More details will be available closer to the date, and will be posted on Facebook.

The Astley Green Colliery Museum is well worth a visit.  It houses Lancashire's only surviving headgear and engine house, along with a collection of twenty-eight colliery locomotives - the largest collection of its type in Britain.
