Day 2: Emirates Airlines Festival of Literature 2013

Yes.. I know this was supposed to be up ages ago but I’ve been so busy with the Untitled Chapters Birthday I just couldnt find the time so please forgive me for the delay.

Anyway, on to how I spent Day 2 of the Emirates Airlines festival of literature

8th March 2013

Sessions I attended

  • Dahl, Spike, JK Rowling & Me with Barry Cunningham.

I was is sheer glee when I entered into this session. This guy was absolutely fantastic! Nice, funny and very welcoming. He talked about how he received JK Rowling’s manuscript in addition to how he got started and what does it take for authors to be published with his publishing house

  • How to PR Your Book & Work With Your Publicist.

Although this session was more focused on how to PR a book for the author. It did give some nice insight and tips as to how to PR a book which is always nice to know

  • The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – From Page to Screen with Deborah Moggach

  • The Quick Pitch 1 – Into the Literary Agent’s Den with Luigi Bonomi

This was probably the one session that would have either make me or break me as a writer and it is the session that I was looking forward to the most. I spent months preparing for it and you can see me talking about it in an earlier post.

I’ll post a separate post regarding what went on with this

Had to leave Day 2 earlier than expected due to an emergency but that was my day.

Stay Tuned for Day 3

Until then
