Frequently Asked Questions
Will you give a speech/ presentation at my event?
Will you read/moderate at our literary festival?
Please get in touch with one of my publicists. They keep my schedule organized and maximize my time when I'm away from home.
Will you come to my book club?
I’m taking a break from book club visits. As much as I love them, I need to bring home some bacon and write a new book. If you live in St. John’s, I have a few events coming up on the island. Bring your book club!
When are you coming to my town?
I keep my events page updated with readings and public appearances.
Will you blurb my book?
Blurbs are a labour of love and I’ve reached my limit for 2019. In 2020, please send a note to Stephanie Sinclair at Transatlantic Agency. Please, please, give me at least three months notice. It takes time to read a book and then write something half sensible in its favour.
Can I hire you to review/ help with my manuscript?
You sure can. Get in touch for a quote.
Any tips on getting a book published?
Any advice for a debut author?
Can I earn a living as a writer?
Ah, the perennial question. I think the answer is yes.
Are you sick of signing books yet?
Never! It’s honestly a privilege each and every time.
Why are there no quotation marks in your novel?
What happens next, after the end of the novel?
That's all she wrote, I'm afraid. It is up to every reader to decide for themselves what happens to the characters and what they do next. But if you really must know more and have finished reading the book and aren't worried about spoilers, here's something I wrote about the ending.
I finished your novel and I want more!
Is your name really Sharon?
