Headline Bloggers Party and Crime quiz!

Headline Publicity hosted their first ever bloggers party on Wednesday 24th March, with authors Sean Cregan, Paul Magrs, Carole Matthews, Jonathan L Howard, Alex Bell and Dan Wells.

We had thirty of the most influential online reviewers attending from the crime, chick lit, literary fiction, ya, sci fi and horror genres. Our ‘fiendish’ quiz was won by visiting US author Dan Wells, who took a break from his hectic tour to lead the winning team of Kasi Collins and bloggers Liz de Jager, Jo Stapley, Rhys Jones and Sammee Hicks.
