#StayAtHomeFest – A Story by Andrew Leach Event @4ndrewJames #Free #FreeEvent @JanetEmson @yearsofreading #Review

Today I took a look at the storytelling by author Andrew Leach. Over on Twitter he is doing around 20/25 tweets to create a story in 3 parts. If you missed today’s part 1, you can find the story on Twitter. It is called Maneki-Neko about two brothers, each of whom tells their part. 

For a story on Twitter, it reads surprisingly well and is worth reading the next installments. It’s interesting and has some drama and atmosphere to it. The second part is around 1:30pm on Wednesday and the 3rd and final part being on Thursday around the same time. It’s worth checking out to see the story unfold and how something can seem pretty decent when a tweet only allows so many characters.

It is thanks to Andrew Leach for doing this, so innovately and to Janet, Clare and Carolyn for doing this festival of which it is a pleasure to blog about, when I can attend events.

The Stay at Home Festival – Running from now until 11th April #BookFestival #OnlineBookFestival #SocialDistancing #StayAtHomeFestival #Festivals

After seeing a call for bloggers from Janet Emson to be part of The Stay at Home Festival with From First Page to Last, I decided to join in. You can too as an audience member, right from the comfort of your own home. There are many author events between now and 11th April for you to enjoy of all different genres. It’s a bit like a library event in a way. If you’ve never heard or read anything from the author, then now is the opportunity to give someone new a chance as it is for free. If there’s an author you love, now is an opportunity to see them talk about their latest work and more… Why not sit back and relax and watch an event unfold that you weren’t expecting, whilst staying at home.

From First Page to Last

This is one of the bookish activities I am taking part in, along with my usual book reviews. Many authors have seen events and entire festivals cancelled, so they have gone online. This is for free and it would be really great if you can support them.  Any time I attend one either from here or elsewhere over the internet I will be blogging about it to support authors.
