Cranleigh Literature Festival 2016
Informed Choice is pleased to be supporting the inaugural Cranleigh Literature Festival next month.
Organised by Cranleigh Arts Centre and sponsored by Manns of Cranleigh, the Cranleigh Literature Festival features a week of spoken word, new writing, creativity, competitions, authors and literature.
Informed Choice is presenting two sessions at the Cranleigh Literature Festival on Friday 4th March 2016.
The first session at 11am introduces Chris Budd on How Money Can Buy You Happiness.
Chris is the acclaimed author of A Bridge of Straw and will be talking exclusively about his new book. Explaining how money can buy you happiness, Chris will describe how to dramatically improve your financial wellbeing.
Chris lives in Somerset with his wife and two children. He plays the guitar and gigs regularly, reads lot of books and graphic novels, and spends far too little time watching cricket.
In between this, he runs Ovation Finance, the Financial Planning business he started in 2000.
When talking recently about his new book to a literature group in London, Chris was described as ‘inspiring’.
At 3.30pm on Friday 4th March, Informed Choice managing director Martin Bamford is talking about Writing and Publishing Non-Fiction Books.
Martin is a best selling personal finance author, and will be sharing the secrets of non-fiction publishing.
Martin will explain everything you need to know and everything you need to do in order to become a published author.
He received his first publishing contract from Pearson Prentice Hall in 2006, at only 26 years old, and has gone on to author and co-author a total of six non-fiction books.
His work has been translated into multiple languages and he has topped the Amazon bestseller charts on multiple occasions.
Describing how he failed his English Literature A-Level and spent over a year securing his first contract with a traditional publisher, Martin will be talking about the importance of a well-crafted new book proposal, why he believes self-publishing can out compete the big name publishers, the resources he uses to get his books published and how becoming a published author is something anyone can achieve.
We are really pleased to be supporting the first Cranleigh Literature Festival and hope you can attend one or both of these sessions.
