GUEST SPECIAL with author AJ Pearce
Hajar met AJ Pearce in 2015 on a writing retreat in North Wales, where they were both tutored by the brilliant Rowan Coleman and Julie Cohen. In the six years since, AJ didn't just pick up agent, get published, and find herself shortlisted for a British Book Award, she's also about to release her second novel, Yours Cheerfully. Picking up where her debut Dear Mrs Bird left off, Yours Cheerfully follows Emmeline Lake as she manages career, family and friendship in wartime London. Hajar loved Dear Mrs Bird and recommends you load up on cake and tea before devouring the first two books in the Emmeline Lake chronicles.
They finally catch up to talk about writing, the pressure of the second book, and AJ shares a brilliant tip for writers needing a little extra inspiration.
