Gloucestershire Writers’ Network competition winners present their work on the theme of ‘numbers’ to chime with the Festival theme of 7 At 70. The competition judges, novelist Amanda Reynolds and poet Stephen Daniels, will read a selection of their work.
There’s always plenty of book buzz around Cheltenham during the Literature Festival so I’m delighted to have been invited by Helene to sign my books and meet readers at her gorgeous shop on the second Saturday of the festival.
Psychological thriller writer Amanda Reynolds joins ChipLitFest for the first time to lead a writers' workshop to help you plan and crucially, finish, your debut novel.
With practical tools and inspirational exercises, Amanda will take you through the process of getting down a first draft and honing it ready for publication.

Elisa Lodato and Amanda Reynolds
Something Nasty in the Living Room
20:30 - 21:30 : Friday 9th November
Tickets £8: Available from Stroud Subscription Rooms
From Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” to SJ Watson’s ”Before I Go to Sleep”, domestic noir – books in which unpleasant things happen far too close to home – remains hugely popular. To discuss this enduring trend, we bring together Elisa Lodato and Amanda Reynolds, two Gloucestershire novelists who focus on domestic darkness in their work.
Elisa will read from and discuss her gripping and atmospheric second novel, “The Necessary Marriage”, in which the arrival of new next-door neighbours unleashes desire, strained loyalties and a tragic chain of events. Amanda will read from and discuss her twisty psychological drama, “Lying to You” in which a wife who believed and stood by her husband after a shocking accusation made against him, is forced to confront the fact that he may, after all, be lying.
Chaired by Stroud novelist Tessa Harris.
It’s hard to think of two more evocative subjects for novelists to explore. Join local author Amanda Reynolds (Lying To You) and Cheltenham Festivals’ writer-in-residence Jane Bailey (Lark Song) as they talk about their new novels and what inspired them. Chaired by Caroline Sanderson.
TICKETS £5 to include refreshments.
Following on from her debut bestseller CLOSE TO ME, Amanda Reynolds will be introducing her second psycological suspense LYING TO YOU.
A gripping drama with dark twists and turns, perfect for fans of Big Little Lies, Anatomy of a Scandal, and Doctor Foster.
'GRIPPING and TWISTY' Laura Marshall, No.1 bestselling author of FRIEND REQUEST
'COMPULSIVELY READABLE' Kate Hamer, author of THE GIRL IN THE RED COAT
