Winter Downs book launch

Posted on Updated on

Tea and cakes and books – what more could you wish for? The 1940s themed launch party for Winter Downs, the WW2 crime novel from 6X6 author Jan Edwards, of course!

Tea and cake as Jan reads from Winter Downs and answers your questions.

There will also be readings from other authors with a 40s flavour so come and join in the celebrations and be the first to buy a signed copy of Winter Downs.

Saturday 3rd June in the Tolkien room at City Central Library, Hanley, between 11.30 and 13.15.


Winter Downs by Jan Edwards

In January of 1940 a tiny rural community on the Sussex Downs, already preparing for invasion from across the Channel, finds itself deep in the grip of a snowy landscape with an ice-cold killer on the loose.

Bunch Courtney stumbles upon the body of Jonathan Frampton in a woodland clearing. Is this a case of suicide, or is it murder? Bunch is determined to discover the truth but can she persuade the dour Chief Inspector Wright to take her seriously?

Winter Downs:  First in the Bunch Courtney Investigates series.

Winter Downs is published by Penkhull Press and will be available in paper and e formats.

Entertaining Evening

Posted on Updated on

Our March 6X6 was a fabulous success with six super writers sharing their words to a  record audience. Good to see so many people there to enjoy the evening.

Leaving the writers free to read without any set theme saw a really wide range of subject matters and styles from BFGs to zombies and many  stations in between.  And as always there were books available for purchase.

Many thanks to the authors: (left to right) Stephanie Hutton, Debbie Voisey, Sarah Akhtar,  Adam Boustead, Jason Smith and Jem Shaw.
