The Debut Authors Festival was created in the spring of 2020, right in the middle of the lockdown. Not the ideal time to launch a new business and certainly not the best time to create a festival, but that’s the way things go.
The idea is simple, we like reading, we like new books and we really like discovering new authors.
Hopefully you do too.
The festival is to help people like you find the best new authors and to support local bookshops. There is something special about opening a new book for the first time that you just don’t get with a kindle, and there is something very special about discovering a great new author.
We will be reviewing new releases, interviewing authors, reviewers, editors and publishers and once the lockdown is over, we will be looking at creating an event to tie in with the Edinburgh Fringe or International Book Festival.
