One of the authors appearing at the Indie Lit Fest is our very own C.S. Woolley. It will be her first signing appearance and she will also be hosting one of the workshops.


Not only will there be a wide variety of books that are up for grabs in the raffle to raise money for Lumos, but also merchandise and other book related items that have been donated by the authors that are taking part in the event. 12675084_1684300918523937_881034556_o

The UK Indie Lit Fest is taking place on 23rd July 2016 at St. James Hall in Bradford, UK. It is free for anyone to attend and there will be books on sale as well as other items of merchandise. Some of the authors are providing people with the opportunity to pre-order items online before the event, so they can be sure they won’t miss out on items on the day. For C.S. Woolley’s pre-order pag, please click here. 12713913_1684301855190510_640289255_n

Some of the authors taking part in the Indie Lit Fest are also putting forward stories for an anthology. The anthology will be sold to raise money for Lumos as well as giving readers the chance to get a feel for the way each of the authors writes. 12714062_1684301245190571_131942920_n

After the fun of the day event, there will also be an after party that will be attended by some of the authors who are attending during the day. Being hosted by the author, D M Singh, it promises to be an truly spectacular evening with the possibility of a touch of horror.


The UK Indie Lit Fest is being brought to you by the Cillian Press and Follow This Publishing.12735885_1684301715190524_1607810175_n

The Bumper Book Quiz promises to be suitable for people of all ages and test the bookish knowledge of all those that decide to take it on. The quiz is being brought to everyone by author, Chris Turnbull.


The indie author community is one that is not only supportive of events and other authors in the community, but of charities as well. The chosen charity for the UK Indie Lit Fest is Lumos.


The event promises to be a day (and night) of bookish fun and is open for anyone to attend. The majority of people attending are expected to be from the Bradford area, but as the authors are travelling from all over the country (and video conferencing in from other continents) it is an event that is well worth spending the weekend in Bradford for.
