Jade Robertson, The International Publishing Director of Austin Macauley said, “We are delighted to be involved in this year’s SCRF, it is our first year participating and we look forward to being part of such an important and educational event! ”. The festival has free admission and the timings for it are; from Sat to Wed 9am – 8pm, Thu 9am – 10pm, and Fri 4pm to 10pm. There will be more than books to entertain children. Their favorite authors and characters will also be in attendance at the SCRF. About the Company Austin Macauley Publishers LTD has a simple policy, to cast their net as widely as possible in search of great books. At a time when publishers and literary agents are closing their doors even to authors with a proven track record, they continue to accept unsolicited work from both new and established writers. To help them with the sometimes daunting and nerve-wracking task of sending their cherished work to a publisher, they endeavor to make our submission process as friendly and efficient as possible. They have offices in the UK, US, and UAE. Their goal is to collect great manuscripts from talented authors and bring their stories to the readers.
