Pan Macmillan's Women's Fiction Event

Pan Macmillan's Women's Fiction Evening!

I have the brilliant Naomi Bacon from Pan Macmillan for the invite to this fantastic event. I was incredibly excited when I got the invite back in November and it was so nice to have this to look forward to in gloomy January. So despite it feeling like it was ages away, suddenly it was the night of the big event! I had managed to repay Zarina the favour for the invite to the Penguin Women's event and she was able to come with me :).

The Pan Macmillan Women's Fiction evening was at the incredible OXO Tower, which I have always seen from a distance but never had the opportunity to go to, so this was even more exciting.

Zarina and I had got there a little early so we were able to check out some of the beautiful books dotted around the room.

Whilst we were there I got to meet Natasha Harding, who has been sending me brilliant books to review and Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg, author of the fabulous The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules. She was such a lovely, funny lady, was great to meet her. Along with Catharina, I met the following incredible authors, Miranda Dickenson and Kirsty Greenwood and Bernie Strachan (author of What Would Mary Berry Do?), all SO nice and so funny and friendly. It was amazing to meet them. I also got to see Hannah Beckerman and Cesca Major again which was fab! I feel so in awe of these authors and bookish people, they are such lovely, clever people and I felt so happy being there.

The event was a roaring success along with some fab prosecco and amazing canap├ęs- I had a hotdog and fish and chips!

On the way out we grabbed a few books and took home a fab goody bag, with some fab books that I was so excited to get my hands on!

Overall an absolutely brilliant evening and my best event of 2015 so far!


  1. You got 'The Bones of You'! Now I really am jealous! I'm a huge fan of Debbie Howells (massively inspiring lady) - you're so lucky!

    1. I met her as well! Meant to mention it in my post, she was such a nice lady! We all got a proof of her book in our goody bags :)
