" I've worked with Elaine throughout my career and I am entirely confident in her event arranging abilities. Wherever we go and whoever we talk to she ensured everything is well organised and that the school are supremely engaged and well prepared. Elaine is also a very warm and lovely person, so I find it an absolute pleasure to work with her, and I am sure you will too "

" I love working with Elaine. She is so efficient, calm and organised - as well as being great fun to have a chat to! She is excellent at organising large, sales-driven events with fabulous audiences. She's a safe pair of hands with excellent contacts. Her passion and commitment mean I never worry about an event when Elaine is organising it. "

Tim Godfray
Executive Chairman, The Booksellers Association

" I have worked in the book trade with Elaine Silverwood for 20 years. She works phenomenally hard; is really creative and innovative; and yet a safe pair of hands. Elaine relishes the challenge of bringing books to new readers, turning them from reluctant to committed book lovers.
All power to her elbow "

" Elaine is a cut above the rest - professional, vastly experienced and intuitive, as well as being a warm, reassuring presence. I would highly recommend Silverwood Events. "

Dear UK INDEPENDENT BOOKSELLERS.
I’ve had some enamel badges made for When The Sky Falls. If you’d like some, as well as signed bookplates, please let me know. Do spread the word. Cheers.

When I grow up, I want to be Keith Gray.
This book is pitch perfect: it captures the rivalries and jealousies and dreams you feel as a teenager.
