Skye Author to read at Waterstones Inverness
Isle of Skye based author is to read from her recently published novel The January Flower in Waterstones Inverness on 28th February at 5.30 pm. Orla Broderick is the founder member of The Skye Literary Salon (now known as The Skye Reading Room). She has been supported by HI-Arts Talent Development team and mentored by Roger Hutchinson. Jenny Brown, Scotland’s leading literary agent describes Orla’s novel as “a completely new perspective on Highland island living.” Extracts from The January Flower can be heard on http://councilhousepublishing.bandcamp.com/. All are welcome to attend this event.
Here at Council House Publishing HQ we believe we have amassed a rather intelligent and literary minded bunch of followers. We don’t wish to simply ask you to ‘like’ and ‘share’ our page on Facebook - that’s way too boring! To be in with the chance of winning a signed copy of The January Flower (posted anywhere in the world) we would like you to compose either a haiku or limerick related to sex and religion AND with reference to The January Flower (if possible).
The competition will close on New Year’s Eve.
Simply post your haiku/limerick on Facebook, then share this page on your timeline OR tweet your entry to @orlabroderick.
The entry with the most likes or retweets wins.
Merry Christmas everyone. ♥
Orla has found her voice here: an exposé – the journey of a soul, woven with mysticism, nature, and a love of life, and life with a capital ‘L’. In spite of Mary’s privations, this is a story to run, skip and jump your way through. It is by turns gritty and grounded, hopeful and optimistic and joyful. The writing has a lyrical quality but it does not dress up the harsh realities or privations in poetry or symbolism; Mary and Angel are carved out of real life and experience. This may not be the sort of book you would normally read, but give it a go. Orla’s story will touch you. It may even change you.
