Make a difference this summer

This looks exciting!

This looks exciting!

A key part of Alternative Realities’ publishing strategy is – since we’re based in Exeter, Devon –  to support authors in Devon & Exeter, and to help the Exeter library get more people through its doors and reading.

We’ve just spotted this advert on their Facebook page and think that this looks very exciting indeed! We’ve asked for more details and will post them when we get them.

It’s back! The theme of this year’s Summer Reading Challenge is Mythical Mazes and launches on Saturday 12 July.

We’re looking for young people to become reading activists to support the Summer Reading Challenge 
Is your child aged 11 to 19 years?
Are they looking for something fun, exciting and creative to do in your local community?
Do they want to meet other young people to make a difference?

For further information, or to get involved, please email devlibs@devon.gov.uk


About mattsylvester

Father of two beautiful daughters and married to the beautiful Karen, Matthew has been reading and writing fantasy and science fiction since he first read the Hobbit at the age of 7. Matthew was Features Editor, Technical Consultant and regular columnist for magazines such as ‘Fighters’, ‘Combat’, ‘TKD & Korean Martial Arts’ and ‘Traditional Karate’. These are the four leading martial arts magazines in the United Kingdom. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed 'Practical Taekwondo: Back to the Roots', which has been sold around the world. With regard to his martial arts background he has been studying martial arts since 1991. In 1995 he hosted Professor Rick Clark of the ADK and since then has been studying pressure points and their uses in the martial arts and on the street (initially as a Special Constable and as a Door Supervisor). All of this practical hands-on experience means that he is uniquely placed to write fight scenes that are not only plausible but some of which are based on personal or anecdotal experience. Matthew has had a number of short stories published by Fringe Works, KnightWatch Press, Anderfam Press and Emby Press.
