The bestselling author of the ‘I heart…’ series, Lindsey Kelk says, ‘I’m incredibly proud to be involved with the How to Get Published tour this year. So far we’ve done London, Bristol and Birmingham, with Edinburgh, Leeds and Liverpool to go and I couldn’t be happier with the way it’s going.’

‘Everyone knows how hard it is to break into publishing, be it as a writer, a journalist, an agent or an editor but if you’re passionate and you’re talented and you’re prepared to give it everything you’ve got, you’ve got the best chance at getting where you want to be and almost everyone we’ve spoken to on the tour is 100% determined and 100% amazing. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen on the rest of the tour!’
