Concerning The Plotting of the Exeter Authors


The Exeter Authors met up on the darkest recesses of Costa today for their bimonthly meeting. It was indeed a plot of writers with plans laid and pens sharpened. The imaginations behind these innocent faces have written work ranging from horror to hedgerows and everything that lingers between...

The year is a very busy publishing time for the Exeter Authors with 3 attending authors publishing newly inked works.

The Books

Laura Wake's debut novel 'A Monster by Violet' will be published in March 2017.  

A Monster by Violet features Violet Kale. Violet has fallen out of love with life—she hasn’t even got the desire to dream. A dissolute figure, she drifts along with her friend Lisa (mother of a baby daughter Maria), reluctant to take responsibility for anything except her own pleasure. Then on a whim, she steals Maria away after a 3-day drug and alcohol binge, heading on a journey to a new land, and seeing in the child a chance of a new future, and a hope for salvation.

Jenny Kane's latest novel  'Abi's Neighbour'  the long awaited sequel to 'Abi's House' will be published on 4th May 2017. 

In 'Abi's Neighbour', Abi Carter has finally found happiness in beautiful Cornwall, with her old tin miner’s cottage proving the perfect home. But all that’s about to change when a new neighbour moves in next door… Cassandra Henley-Pinkerton represents everything Abi thought she’d escaped when she left London. She’s obnoxious, stuck-up, and hates living in Cornwall. Worst of all, she seems to have designs on Abi’s boyfriend Max…
But Cassandra has her own problems. Her wealthy lawyer lover has promised to leave his wife and join her in their Cornish love nest – but something always comes up. Now, not only is Cassandra stuck on her own, miles away from her city lifestyle, but someone seems intent on sabotaging her successful business. Will she mellow enough to turn to Abi for help – or are the two just destined not to get along?

P.J. Reed's senryu poetry collection, 'Flicker' is due out in March 2017.

'Flicker' is a collection of senryu poems providing flickers or moments in the curious lives of the people she has met on her travels throughout Devon.

The Exeter Authors will also be making a new 'Introducing Me' video, whereby readers will get the chance to see the author hidden behind the words.

The Costa Foundation
