Join Tufnell Park Writers on Thursday 1 September from 7pm for an in person talk and Q&A with Darren Hardy and Michaella Parkes from Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, and author Nicola May providing her author perspective. 

The two hours will include a presentation from Darren and Michaella followed by a Q&A. Nicola will share her publishing experiences with the audience. There will be plenty of time for your questions.

Nicola May is a rom-com superstar. She is the author of sixteen romantic comedies, all of which have appeared in the Kindle bestseller charts. The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay became the best-selling Kindle book in the UK, across all genres, in January 2019, and was Amazon’s third-bestselling novel in that year.
