Author webchats

Catch up with what all your favourite authors had to say when they joined us to talk about plots, characters, covers, sex scenes...and everything in between. Whether they featured in our monthly book club or simply came along to GHNQ for a cuppa and a chat (and cake - of course) you'll find insights, advice and some intriguing tales.
