UCLan Publishing to bring Rose Edwards’ The Harm Tree to Preston

A fantasy author who promises to fill a void for Game of Thrones fans will launch her first published book at a free event hosted by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

Rose Edwards’ The Harm Tree is the first of an epic new fantasy series published by the University’s in-house publishing team, UCLan Publishing. It is set in a world still recovering from one war and on the brink of another.

Rose will be at the University’s Preston Campus on Monday 22 July for an exclusive launch event where she will read extracts from The Harm Tree, answer audience questions and sign copies of her book.

"She’s had great reviews in The Guardian and The Times and we’re looking forward to introducing her to a Preston audience"

Hazel Holmes from UCLan Publishing said: “After the success of AJ Hartley’s Cold Bath Street, this was the first book we bought from a literary agent for our commercial business and we’re very excited about it. Rose is a huge talent and when she attended our Northern Young Adult Literary Festival earlier this year, she signed copies of the Harm Tree for more than two hours. We’re looking forward to introducing her to a Preston audience.” 

The event will take place from 6.00pm – 7.00pm in UCLan’s Harrington Social Space in Harrington Building. It is free to attend but places are limited so people are asked to register online via Eventbrite.
