I've bought my tickets and am looking forward to attending various talks from Thursday through to Sunday at this year's Jersey Festival of Words.
From Anne Sebba, Alison Weir, Michael Morpurgo, Louise Doughty, Antonia Hodgson and Rachel Abbott to Kelly Clayton, Claire Boscq Scott, Sophie Cousens, Simon Scarrow, Victoria Hislop, Paul Darroch and Ian Ronayne and many, many more, it's difficult to fit in all the talks/workshops, etc.
Here's the link for tickets.
I can't wait!
Also at the moment is my book, Broken Faces, written as, well, me, Deborah Carr has been reduced for a short time (until 4 October) to 99p \ 99c on Amazon.
Broken Faces is set in WW1 in both Jersey, Shropshire, France and Belgium. It's the story of the hallowed privilege who believed life was always going to be golden. It's also the story of two young men in love with the same woman and of thousands of broken men who returned from the Front with masks over their faces to hide the irreparable damage. These men were expected to live a “normal” life.
Spanning the 1914-18 war it is ultimately a story of how love can triumph over adversity in the most unexpected of ways.
Here's a picture of the book in front of Jersey's PoW camp from WW1, Les Blanches Blanques and here's a link to discover more and see a few pictures of the camp.
