From the editor…

As we move into February, literary events season looms. You can expect lots of articles explaining how indie authors can really make the most of the events that are on offer.

You may have noticed our recent piece about DIY self-publishing. As the name suggests, this is for authors who are considering what it might take to ‘go it alone’. It’s the first in our mini series looking at the very basics of self-publishing – ideal for those who are new to this or repeat authors considering a fresh approach.

Shortlisted for the Virginia Prize for Fiction 2016

"A great story, full of sharp and funny observations. Someone needs to form a Concierge tribute band." - Gideon Coe, BBC 6Music

This debut novel from respected music writer Zoë Howe, is a rock ‘n’ roll love story that celebrates the extremes of life in the music business and challenges the myth of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll with plenty of wry humour, strong characters and sharp dialogue along the way. Never mind chick lit. This is rock chick lit.

Sylvie is a dresser working for a New Romantic band currently enjoying a 21st century revival. Sylvie becomes romantically involved with Nick – reluctant heart-throb and the least unhinged member of the band – after bonding amid the chaos of touring life over a shared obsession with Television’s seminal album ‘Marquee Moon’. However, a dark secret threatens to destroy their future together and much more besides.

Shine On, Marquee Moon exposes the hilarious, heart-wrenching and often bizarre reality of life on and off the road, where the most unlikely people become family, and ‘friends’ aren't always who they appear to be.
