Category Archives: Thursday Throng

‘Throng’ is n. – A multitude of persons or of living beings pressing or pressed into a close body or assemblage; a crowd.

Welcome to a new section of this blog which I’m calling The Thursday Throng in honour of the throng that waits eagerly outside the book store when a new author is doing a book signing event or appearance.

This will take the form of a ‘Meet the Author’ online event with some information about our author’s latest book and an interview. If you would like to take part in the Thursday Throng then why not email me to find out more.

Meeting Jim Webster, author of Justice 4.1

In this week’s Thursday Throng author interview I have the pleasure of meeting, metaphorically of course, Jim Webster who knows an awful lot about the Tsarina sector, but as he say’s on his blog it’s awfully difficult to get photographs out of it. Continue reading

Meeting Charles Frankhauser, author of The Last Pirate at Fort Matanzas

His goal in writing fiction is to entertain readers at as reasonable a cost as possible whilst recognizing that status as a “household name in literature” is not likely to happen (his words and not mine!). Hopefully, he’ll get a little more recognition as a result of appearing on the Thursday Throng. Continue reading
