Episode 2: Annie Weir

Create Your Own eBook Cover


Annie Weir's debut, self-published novel is the psychological page turner ‘Judith Wants To Be Your Friend'.

The inspiration for the story came during a workshop taken as part of Annie’s MA, and after some time sitting on her computer hard drive, Annie decided the get the book published through Matador, the self-publishing imprint of The Troubador Publishing Group.

Annie is also the owner and manager of her own training company – IVITA Learning – so she's also managed to balance her writing with a day-job.
