Hi, folks! I just wanted to post a quick update to let you know about some exciting book news. Basically, there’s been an opportunity for me to join a press trip to Riga in Latvia on a press trip as part of an initiative to raise the profile of Latvian authors in the UK.
Over thirty Latvian authors are being published in the UK in 2018, which is quite the achievement considering that the Latvian speaking and writing population consists of 1.3 million people. They’ll also have a big presence at London Book Fair, which I’ll be going to, and it’s also the Latvian centenary celebrations in 2018.
I’m not going to say a huge amount here because I wrote about it in more detail on my book blog. What I will say is that I’ll be both blogging and vlogging throughout the trip and I’ll also be posting on Instagram, Twitter etc. (and on my book blog’s Instagram and Twitter profiles too). I’ll also be checking in with them at London Book Fair to see how they’re getting along.
I’m super excited to be a part of all this and I can’t wait to share some of the amazing Latvian literature that I’ll be discovering in the next couple of months. Make sure you keep an eye on my blog and my BookTube channel for further info. I’ll see you soon.
