BriarField Press has been set up by Gunvor Johansson to publish children's books with a theme of fantasy and adventure that are captivating for all, adults and children alike.
Publications are available on:
On this their third adventure Tula and Huva
find themselves in Charles Dickens’ office in 1870. Huva uses troll magic to
transport them into the book of Oliver Twist, where they meet not only Oliver
but also where Tula has a frightening encounter with Fagin. Inside the covers
of David Copperfield they meet Betsey Trotwood and the charming Mr Dick as well
as many more of the characters in this book.
The picture below is from the afternoon I spent talking to Brandon Care about my books.
Another year gone.
It is time for for the Arundel Festival again, Saturday 18th August until Bank Holiday Monday the 27th, Chindi authors will be outside the Cancer Charity shop. I am really looking forward to this event, as the lovely people of Arundel and visitors to the festival do support us so well. Last year Chindi authors raised over £400 for Cancer Research. We are hoping to beat that total this year and with your support we just might. So do come and see us! We have many books in different genres on display so you are bound to find one you like.
On the 4th of March 2018 I attended the UK Book Show in Worthing. Eight Chindi Authors got together and we shared a couple of tables. Fifty authors were there this day. I am pleased to let you know there will be another UK Book Show on the 28th October this year.This time it will be held at Field Place Manor House, The Boulevard, Worthing, BN13 1NP at
10 am - 4pm.
The last book show I went to in June at Hursley Park, near Winchester was very well organized. What the organizer didn't know was that England would be playing in the World cup that very Sunday. The competiton was too great! Never mind I still enjoyed the day. Last Sunday I aslo spent a very pleasant day at the Maze, Sidlesham. It was a hot day but Chindi authors were able to spend it under cover as we brought our very own marquee. We were provided with a salad lunch and alltogether had a lovely day chatting to the visitors and each other. One lucky lady won our competition and the prize was £70 worth of our books. She was delighted.
I have just published; Tula's Troll in Dicken's Land, it is my third book in the series of; The Adventures of Tula and her Troll. In this book Tula and her Troll find themseves in Dicken's office in 1870. Huva, the troll, uses troll magic to transport them into the books of Oliver Twist and David Cooperfield.
Also just completed is my grown-up novel, but it is not ready for publication yet. It is a paranormal story, with a two-tier time line of 1902 and 2005.
This year at Arundel Festival, Chindi authors had another succesful event raising £427 for Cancer research. I spent part of two days helping to man the stall. This is an event which I enjoy attending. I am already looking forward to next year. Apart from the UK Book Show in Worthing in October I have another event to look forward to; there will be a Christmas Fair in Southsea on the 15th November and twenty local authors will be at Southsea library with their books. A excellent chance to buy a book for a Christmas present and to support local authors.
Here we are, already two months into 2019.
Last Monday, the 11th February, I had the pleasure to speak to a lovely group of friendly ladies in Farlington. I really enjoyed speaking to them, as they made me feel welcome. I talked about my books and what gave me the inspiration to write them. Also I read from two of my books, which was well received. It was a good day.
In April, I went to Portsmouth and talked to members of the Brendon Care group. I told them a little about my childhood in Sweden and of course my books. As recently as yesterday; 5th June I had again the pleasure to speak to another Brendon Care group. This time in Havant, a place I know well as I used to live there. In fact I wrote my first children's book; The Water People's Secret in Havant.
It is not long now until the Arundel Festival in August. Chindi authors will be there again this year. I am looking forward to this week. Hope to see you there!
Sunday 4th August it was time for Chindi Authors' stall at the Maze, in Sidlesham. It was not as hot as last year, the temperature was just right. Four of us had a pleasant day selling our books and also raising money for our hosts. Several Chindi authors had donated books for the raffle to a value of £65. A young boy, by the name of Noah, had guessed the weight of the Oxford Dictionary, and came within one ounce of the correct weight.
Arundel Festival starts on the 16 August until 26 th this year. As usual Chindi will have a stall outside the Cancer charity shop. I will be there on the Monday, Wednesday, Friday and the last Sunday. This is an event I alway enjoy and look forward to.
