Local author to share new novel and self-publishing story at SCLA discussion evening

The Sunshine Coast Literary Association will host its next quarterly discussion and presentation evening on Tuesday, 19 July with local author and guest speaker, Andrea Storey.

The evening will be held at the Buderim Mountain State School Conference Room, 8-42 Main Street, Buderim (opposite St Marks Church) at 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start.

SCLA President, Bryan Ward said the discussion and presentation evening, as always, would be a stimulating and interesting night with great and inspiring company.

The evening will feature an author talk from SCLA Secretary, Andrea Storey about her new fantasy novel, ‘Heaven’s Gate Secrets Revealed’. The novel, the first in a series, is about the roller coaster adventures of the Thomas family as they travel the globe encountering quirky people and events along the way.

Andrea said she was keen to share why and how she writes and also her journey through the self-publishing maze.

“I have loved books and the written word for as long as I can remember,” Andrea said.

“So, having my own book in the National Library is a dream come true,” she said.

The Sunshine Coast Literary Association (SCLA) is a not-for-profit association dedicated to nurturing, showcasing and celebrating literary talent throughout the Sunshine Coast region.

The night will begin with nibbles at 6:30pm followed by the discussion and presentation at 7:30pm. Entry is free for SCLA members or $2 for non-members.

Members and guests are welcome to attend for the opportunity to talk and network with other writers and participate in discussions on the Association program.

The SCLA will also hold a half-day workshop for aspiring children’s book authors – ‘Writing and Illustrating Picture Books for Children’ at the Buderim Mountain State School on Saturday, 16 July.
