*Sold Out* Publishing Workshop: How to edit your novel

Wednesday 25th January 2017
19:00 at Waterstones, Birmingham

Are you struggling to edit your novel? Feel like you are going in circles? Do you know about the stages a novel goes through before it is published?
Join GX Todd, Gillian McAllister and Stephen Aryan in conversation as they discuss how they edited their novels and the process they went through on the path to publication. They are also joined by Amanda Rutter, a freelance editor and literary agent, who can share her experience of editing and the kind of revisions she might ask her clients to do.
 G X Todd is a librarian from the West Midlands and DEFENDER, published by Headline in January, is the first novel in the four-part post-apocalyptic series.
Gillian McAllister is a writer and lawyer living in Birmingham. Her debut novel, Everything But The Truth, will be published by Penguin in March 2017.
Amanda Rutter is a freelance editor (publishing experience with Angry Robot, Titan Books, Black Library and Wise Ink Publishing) and associate agent with Red Sofa Literary Agency.
Stephen Aryan is a writer of epic fantasy living in the West Midlands. His debut novel, Battlemage, was published last year, followed by Bloodmage and Chaosmage in 2016. The first novel in his new trilogy will be published in October 2017.
