There's a fairly commercial fiction bias here as Sheila 'has masterminded many No.1 bestsellers' (?!) and 'focuses primarily on women’s commercial fiction, thrillers, mbs (mind, body, spirit), sport and celebrity books'. And Eoin McHugh (formerly of Easons) heads up Transworld Ireland, the publishers 'responsible for recent bestsellers from Patricia Scanlan, Mandy Hearty and Amanda Brunker'.

Still, sometimes these events can be an eye opener in terms of information you would not otherwise learn. And it's a nice way to meet other writers too!
