'You escorted us headlong into what can be quite a brutal reality for writers - and offered up the facts in a gentle, supportive and inviting way' - Christina Robert, author

'I highly recommend Helen Lewis and Abiola Bello and the fabulous Author School that they've created. Their no-nonsense, humorous and down to earth approach made it easy to connect with them, relax and enjoy the day. Their knowledge is second to none.' - Greta Solomon, author

'I just completed the first draft of my book. Great! But then I wondered, what next? The very next day I received notification of the setting up of The Author School and its first course: Creative Writing Workshop, which covered the route to book publication and marketing. The timing and the course content were just what I was looking for so I signed up straight away. I wasn't disappointed. The speakers really knew their subjects, the whole day ran to time and the course was packed with information. It proved to be a very worthwhile day.'   - Sue B. Surrey, author

'THANK YOU for such a superb day on Monday. Everything about the day was so much more than I had expected. You, the team, were friendly and very talented, and all the speakers gave valuable information. I cannot imagine better, more compact, information being available anywhere else.In fact, I enjoyed the day so much that I will probably attend your next one! It was also wonderful to spend the day with fellow writers/authors and those in associated fields. I have already made contact with a couple of the attendees and we are exchanging tips.'  - Kate Turner, author
