Author Jon Mayhew visits Formby

THE fantastic Jon Mayhew gave an enthralling talk, as he entertained a select number of his fans, at Formby Books, on Thursday, 3 May 2012.  If you do not know who he is, well he is the author of many spooky books and he attended the shop to promote his new book, "The Bonehill Curse."  At this very special event were some students from local schools, as well as parents and some other fans. Followers of our Facebook Page can see a video clip of the author playing one of his many musical instruments at the event.  He also got some of the audience to use the microphone to see who had the most frightening laugh. This visit comes as part of a build up to this year's Scare Fest Book Event, of which, again, will be running in Crosby.  We can now reveal that we are working with the creator of the event, Tony Higginson from Formby Books, on this project and full details will be posted in forthcoming editions of Southport and Mersey Reporter, very soon.  So keep your eyes focused on our next editions as you never know what might be happening!  Also if you have not got a copy of Jon Mayhew's new book, why not visit Formby Books, within Derbyshires, in Formby (L37 4DU) for a copy. We will have a few for sale on our Mersey Reporter Shop, very soon.  If you go quickly to Formby Books, you might also get a signed copy, as a few books are still available to order...
