to you and yours for the holidays!
– from Ben
I attended a “how to make great videos with your own phone” lecture recently! See, I have plans…
I’d like to make some great videos – the kind you see popping up on youtube everywhere. Actually, I’d be happy with making just regular videos to cover my stage work from good angles without technical flaws.
So I trundled along to an informative lecture by Alex Pell, founder of Dashboard Media, at the amazing WeWork Old Street building in London on this very topic. Here’s one of the helpful tips he recommended, shown in a recent video.
It looks like I’ve got a lot of learning to do – just my kind of fun!
Bestselling and award-winning author Alice Kuipers appeared recently on CTV Morning Live Literary Segment to discuss three favourite books and why she recommends them. Click the image above to hear her.
Upcoming interview: Alice released her new young adult novel, Me (and) Me in Canada on April 11, 2017 and will join us soon to speak about the inspiration behind it!
Alice Kuipers, the award-winning author of 40 Things I Want to Tell You, Death of Us and Life on the Refrigerator Door, is an expert chronicler of the teenage heart. Born and raised in London, England, Alice now lives in Saskatoon, Canada, with her partner, the writer Yann Martel, and their four young children.
Join us for a great literary night out that brings people into bookshops and connects readers with audiences – in person and online.
Three novelists will be reading the opening chapter to an audience, which will be recorded for the web.
1. BEN STARLING is passionate about gender equality, marine conservation and boxing, all central themes in his work. His interest in marine life has taken him across three continents over the past three decades. He is Oxford Univeristy’s only ever quintuple boxing Blue (varsity champion five years running), was Captain of the university boxing team, competed until recently, and continues to coach. Ben graduated with a Master of Arts and a Master of Philosophy. He was born in the USA, but has lived in the UK since childhood.
Ben will be reading from his novel, Something In The Water.
2. HELENA HALME is a Finnish author based in London. Her books include The Englishman, a best-selling romantic novel, which won an Awesome Indies badge on publication. Her other titles are The Navy Wife, a sequel to The Englishman, Coffee and Vodka and The Red King of Helsinki. The Finnish Girl, her latest novella, is a prequel to The Englishman.
He is a travel author who prefers to walk the roads less travelled. His passion for travelling under his own steam, all began when he walked out on a fifteen year career in the investment industry and kept on walking. This journey eventually took him to the foothills of the Pyrenees and a walking adventure across Spain on the historical Camino de Santiago pilgrimage. The adventure inspired his debut novella Candyfloss Guitar, a #1 Kindle Store book.
