Live: Book Break - A new online book show series

Episode 3

Book Break
Book Break

183 million printed books were sold in the UK last year -- and many more ebooks besides - yet still there is no dedicated book show on British screens. Until now...

Book Break, a book show from Pan Macmillan, where author Alexandra Heminsley (Running Like a Girl) discusses all things book-related with some of the most exciting writers publishing today.

In episode three we are joined by Clare Donoghue, a former city lawyer whose debut novel Never Look Back is set in South London, will have Peter James fans gripped.

Banished, a debut YA novel, was written over a seven year period by Liz de Jager while she ran the popular book review website My Favourite Books.

And Matt Cain, former culture editor of Channel4 News and currently a columnist for Attitude, draws on his experience and celebrity knowledge with his debut novel Shot Through the Heart, an LA based Hollywood romance.

This month we take a step inside Helen Rappaport’s ‘Writer’s Room’ to see what writing rituals she has and how she gets into the zone, and put our quickfire questions to author Jo Rees.

We’ll also hear from three aspiring authors in the first of our Life’s A Pitch segments – but who will our debut novelists pick as the best of the bunch?
