A quick post tonight, as the witching hour is approaching and we're busy preparing for tomorrow - day two of the Royal Manx Agricultural Show at Knockaloe. We're with our friends from the Bridge Bookshop in Port Erin and have a stall in one of the main marquees, selling books by authors appearing at this year's festival and tickets to a few events.
The big move today was sending artwork for the first batch of Friends of Manx Litfest membership cards off to our partner printer - Bridson & Horrox - and they should be with us next week, to send out to those very kind book-loving souls who have signed up to be our Friends.
It's a cracking deal - just £15 per person per year, and for that there's a range of benefits, including discounted Litfest tickets, a 10% discount on all purchases at the Bridge Bookshop, an invite to our informal launch event on the evening of Thursday, September 27 (where you get to meet some of the authors) and two free tickets to selected Litfest events.
If you're interested in signing up, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send you a form. Or, if you're around the Royal Show tomorrow, you can drop by and pick up/complete a form. We'll soon have the form and information about the Friends on our website.
