Formby Books had a pre-Easter visit from to top authors!

FORMBY Books might still be struggling like most independent bookshops in the UK, as they narrowly avoided closing recently, but they still enjoy the support of some of the UK's best authors. The shop holds regular events and organise some superb side line functions and this was the latest event to be hosted by the shop. On Saturday, 12 April 2014, the shop on Halsall Lane, Formby, hosted a joint book signing with novelist June Francis, who attended the shop to promote her latest book called:- 'Step by Step'. If you do not know who June Francis is, she was born in Blackpool and moved to Liverpool at an early age, where she remains today. She gained a large following producing articles for 'My Weekly' and now has published over twenty novels. She was joined by Jane Costello, who is one of the top 10 bestselling author, writing over 7 novels including:- 'Bridesmaids', 'The Wish List' and 'The Time Of Our Lives'. The talented author was once worked at the Daily Mail and moved on to become the Editor of the Liverpool Daily Post until 2007. Both talked openly to fans and also enjoyed seeing the local student artist Holly Bushnell, who has started to finish the wall mural in Formby Books. Also attending was another local artist, Kate Gauthier, who makes handcrafted Jewellery that is available from Formby Books.
