My Publishing Journey with Alan McDermott


Alan McDermott web


 Alan McDermott left school in 1982 with a CSE grade C in English and didn’t start writing until he was 24. However, it wasn’t until 21 years later that he self-published his first novel. Fast-forward eight years and Alan is a full-time author, with 10 books published by Thomas & Mercer and over 1.3 million sales to date. He has held the Amazon number one slot in Australia and number 2 in the Amazon UK chart, as well as many visits to the top of the Military Thriller (once held the top 7 spots) and Conspiracy Thriller charts. Alan will chart his writing career from the early foundations to the present.





All meetings are at Goring Methodists Church Hall - start at 7:30pm

Meetings are open to all - Saver members - Free; Members - £3; Non-Members / Guests - £5 (unless otherwise stated)
