Welcome to Conversations with Authors, where I – Alison Thompson, AKA The Proof Fairy – meet amazing authors and find out what inspires them to write and what advice they would offer other aspiring authors.
Today I have a chat with Alanna Irving, a British author currently living in Barcelona. While Alanna has been writing all her life, her first published novel “Abolish the Rose” is out on 10th April 2022 through Atmosphere Press. 

Atmosphere Press specialise in partnership publishing and in the podcast we talk about why Alanna chose that method over self-publishing. We also discuss how social media and blog tours can be used to promote books, and Alanna explains her reasons for writing.
