Odd Voice Out
Two Weeks Till YALC 2019
After a few months of radio silence, Odd Voice Out will soon be bursting with news as we gear up for our biggest splash yet. In recently weeks we have been feverishly editing final drafts and preparing new cover art for our summer releases – The Vagabond Stage by Kell Cowley and The Book of Shade by K.C. Finn. Now alongside our well-received winter novels Shrinking Sinking Land and Fallow Heart we are ready to showcase our diverse bookshelf and unleash our OvO brand for an audience of avid YA readers.
From Friday 26th July – Sunday 28th July we will be exhibiting at YALC 2019, the UK’s largest annual YA lit fest at the Olympia in London. Over the three day event we’ll be selling and signing, offering prizes, merch and samplers, and promoting our short story competition Not So Normal Narrators. Not only that, but on the Saturday we’ll be hosting two creative workshops – Be the Change and Let’s Get Dramatic.
We began planning for this event on the train home from YALC 2018. In the time between then and now, we have collectively published four novels. We have completed our first successful Kickstarter campaign. We have hosted our own gala launch night in our hometown of Chester. We have performed readings and workshops for a variety of fairs and festivals, most recently a local author night at the Northwich Literature Festival (pictured above). Our short story contest has been promoted in the UK’s Writing Magazine and we’re currently receiving entries from all over the world for our first anthology collection. Like we said…we’ve been busy! We look forward to bringing you news of our big national debut as we reach the final leg of our road to YALC. Can't wait to meet the readers.
