If you’re in Manchester on Wednesday 17 October, get yourself along to a special showcase of Unbound authors at the Manchester Literature Festival.
Meet the Unbound Live authors
Manchester-based Shaun Usher launches a beautiful coffee table book Letters of Note, based on his phenomenally successful blog which gathers and sorts fascinating letters, postcards, telegrams, faxes and memos into an eclectic mix of the humour, seriousness, sadness and brilliance that makes up our lives.
Writer and actor Robert Llewellyn, best known for his role in hit sitcom Red Dwarf, reads from his Utopian novel News from Gardenia, which, avoiding the usual post-apocalyptic vision so beloved of Hollywood, predicts a future where we made the right choices about technology, fuel and how we live our lives.
Katy Brand will be reading an exclusive chapter from her semi-autobiographical novel Brenda Monk is Funny, exploring the trials and tribulations of being a female stand-up comedian.

Unbound, a revolutionary new way to get books published by involving readers, was launched at Hay Festival on 29 May 2011. Using the www.unbound.co.uk publishing platform, authors pitch their book ideas directly to their readers. Readers choose the ideas that they like on the website and pledge their support. When an idea has enough supporters, the book is written. If it doesn’t get enough support, it won’t.
