At the weekend Triskele Books became part of the Chorleywood Literary Festival
The Triskelites offered themselves as reference books on all aspects of independent publishing
and shared their collective experience to a wide range of festival attendees.
The Triskele authors answered questions on the practicalities of operating as a collective. Jane explained how they remain independent while working as a team. Gilly shone some light on how five authors communicate across three countries and two time zones. Liza gave an honest insight into how much work really goes on behind the scenes.
Three new releases and unusually for Triskele, all in the same genre: historical fiction. But the time periods in question could not be more dissimilar.
Liza Perrat's Wolfsangel takes place in a rural French village under the shadow of WWII Nazi occupation.
JD Smith's Overlord is set in 3rd century Syria and follows the rise of warrior queen Zenobia.
Catriona Troth's Ghost Town explores race, racism and identity against the backdrop of 1980s Coventry.
The passion for the story radiated from each author, and the brief readings seemed to enthuse and excite the audience, so that our books table was overrun.
Jaffareadstoo is delighted to support Triskele Books
and we wish all the Triskele authors continuing success.
