Exeter Authors Association Go Plotting!

First one of the year as Exeter Authors Association braved the freezing cold to gather at Tiverton's top coffee house in Bampton Strasse at the grey and maroon place with the pretty windows where it don't "Costa" lot a money to meet up!

The group was at least ten strong this morning with numerous apologies and a packed agenda reflected how busy the EAAonistas are going to be in 2018 with many library deals being signed up to feature some top-notch talks, lectures, workshops, quizzes, kiddies games and free cake!

Free cake is a reminder of the one aspect that was missing from the gathering (other than the apologists of course!)  which was the scrumptious beetroot caraway banana marmite and peanut butter rolls as created by Head Chef and author of science fiction fame and en route all the way from the fishing port of Brixham, our very own Richard Docket  who's elaborate recipes are fast becoming world renowned and if someone else could bring the soup brunch breakfast
or lunch is covered!

Highlight of the day was an action-packed presentation from accomplished author and bestseller Jenny Kane, JK (hey those initials could be worth a fortune!) talked about the good manners & proper way to utilise social media, covering  all the platforms, the do's and dont's including prostitution, criminal activity and the benefits of advertising on social media ..of which there appear to be none! Thanks to the Kane for putting together such a good powerpoint, it really
was very informative in terms of how to set up, how to use the format and how to create your own blog so whoever is doing the professional development workshop in February had better be on the ball as the Kane is a hard act to follow
........oh dear I think it's me oops!!

Overall it was better than most of the football l cover..the crowd were appreciative, no rowdiness or swearing, and even though there was no sign of burgers(delivering the familiar stench of onions) or prawn sandwiches, nobody left early to avoid the full-time rush and as ever it was always a pleasure!

Best, for now, EAAonistas may your weekend be a darn sight warmer than it is today!!!
