Renowned publishing companies, like Orion Publishing Group which published PERCEPTION, have an expectation that authors will meet with the public to provide insights on their writings and to promote books. While Terri notes that public speaking can be “a bit scary”, she truly enjoys engaging with readers to discuss her research and lifelong historical interests.
Terri was invited to speak about her book, PERCEPTION, during the 46th annual Rye Arts Festival, which conducted a series of Jane Austen-focused events to mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death. The 2017 festival held in East Sussex offered more than 60 events including classical music, literary talks, drama and film to celebrate arguably one of the country’s greatest authors.
Besides her September 2017 reading at the Rye Arts Festival, Terri conducted an author talk at Waterstones, a UK specialist bookstore chain with over 200 bookshops in the UK and Europe (see photo) along with other author readings. Terri enjoys the give and take of question and answer sessions with her readers. She also notes that reading aloud in her writing groups in Zurich and England was good preparation for her public speaking tours! For more info: www.terrifleming.com.
