READERS . . .
You can send me a message via my ‘Contact Me’ page or email me at KimSlaterAuthor@yahoo.co.uk
Due to the number of emails I receive, it is becoming more difficult to reply to each one promptly and individually. Saying that, I do love to hear from readers and I do read every message! But I simply have to spend my writing time wisely or I’d never get another book written!
SPEAKING . . .
I am only available for a very limited number of author visits during 2017 due to my writing commitments.
Please email for fees and available dates. My preferred format for school events is to give one presentation (45 mins-1 hr) to as many students as you can fit into your gym or theatre space plus a signing afterwards. Please note I do charge for all events and will require overnight accommodation if the venue is over 1.5 hours drive from Nottingham. I prefer to travel by car and charge the HMRC approved rate of .45p per mile from NG2 Nottingham.
If you are interested in making a booking, please email KimSlaterAuthor@yahoo.co.uk or contact my events organiser
Authors Aloud UK on 01727 893992 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘Kim is a very exciting and inspirational author, which is why we were so delighted to have her visit us to run a crime writing workshop for our year 7 students with varying academic abilities. Kim used images, to stimulate and encourage her young audience to use their creative writing skills. We were absolutely delighted with the written work produced by the students as a result of Kim’s work.
In short, it was an excellent afternoon for the students, helping to improve both their writing skills and self-confidence. We would definitely recommend Kim and are already making plans for her next visit.’

‘We had a wonderful day at St Helens Central Library with author Kim Slater and four local high schools. It was great listening to Kim talking to the young people, with great enthusiasm and passion about her journey to becoming a published author and how the story of ‘Smart’ was born.
It was also really interesting to hear how the work of LS Lowry became quite an important part of ‘Smart’. Kim really got the young people thinking about art and how it can be interpreted differently depending on who’s looking at it.
A great interactive and knowledge workshop enjoyed by the young people, teachers and library staff.’
Karen Thornburn, Library Support Assistant, Library Support Unit, St Helens – Sept 15
