Christmas Season 2017.
We would like to wish every reader who has supported us this year a Very merry Christmas. It has felt like a challenging year as we have dealt with all the issues that surround the current wave of Austerity and the concerns over Brexit in the UK, which makes the support of every reader even more appreciated. So a huge thank you from all of us.
May this coming season be happy and peaceful and may you all enter the New Year of 2018 safely and may it bring you all prosperity and greater joy.
New You Tube Channel.
For over a year behind the scenes VCP have been looking into a new way of promoting and sharing information on our Authors. This week we have finally put into place the final peices of what will become a new You Tube Channel. It is our hope to use filmed footage of our authors events and interviews to bring a closer connection to the reader. The Channel is live now a features some clips that help introduce some of our Authors and we also have added all the footage from Ted's talk at Burnage Library from back in November this year.
You can use this link to have a look at it (click here)
VCP made a visit to Burnage library on November 7th 2017 to support our Author and Poet Ted Morgan. This was a very special event for Ted, as Burnage is the place he was born, and spent the early part of his childhood. Ted gave a talk to the assembled group of his life as a small boy during World War two, and painted a fascinating picture of life as it was back then. For many elderly members of the audience, he helped fill in a few gaps of local history and reminded them of many of the moments from their own life, it was well received by all and a truly was an inspirational couple of hours. The event was filmed by VCP and we will be posting the footage soon.
New release From Ted Morgan
We are delighted to add a second Poetry Book to our lists, from Wordsmith's Author Ted Morgan. His second book of verse is a slightly larger and filled with equally as many heart touching and humorous Poems all based on his observations of the past and today's modern life. The book which is in a paper back form retails for just £7.99 (publisher Price £6.99) and we are sure it will be as big a hit as his first if not bigger. Well done Ted and good luck.
