Author copies of The Fairy Lights – try these on for size
Book swag! These copies of The Fairy Lights just arrived in the post in time for my upcoming Christmas Fayre event, which will be taking place on 9th December.
The hardcover copy will be sent to the British Library for legal deposit. The sample is a first chapter excerpt that I keep along with samples of my other books; easier than always having the actual books at hand. The paperbacks are what I will be selling at author events.
Authors, do you have a preferred format of your books? Personally I like my hardcovers. They’re cloth bound with a dust jacket, so they look lovely on the bookshelf. I’ll make a video reading showing them in a bit more detail at some point.
Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry.
In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.
