Lavinia Urban ~ I am one of the lucky authors who has been lucky enough to attend one of the events Hourglass have hosted.
Their drive and precision is unbelievable. They do everything they can to try and make their events successful and they succeed.
They like to keep everyone informed and up-to-date along the way and try and answer every single question.
They are accommodating and put on a smile through everything.
Even through the whole event they are a constant move to try and ensure that everyone is okay, do authors have a glass of water, do readers have any questions.
They even made a little game to ensure that readers got round every authors table, which was great.


Glenn Haigh ~ Oh my word what can I say? What do you say about two of the most amazing ladies you have ever met in the whole world? If life were a fairy tale Jo and Rachel would be my fairy Godsisters; like fairy Godmothers only much younger, and way more beautiful.
You see, without them and without hourglass events, I would not be here. I am the plant, and they are the water that fed and nourished me.
Let me tell you a story:
Last year I turned up to Peterborough with a couple of DIY boards and some laminated posters. I walked into a world I didn’t understand, with just two e-books to my name. But, because of the door that these two amazing ladies held open for me, and because they took me to their hearts, Leeds was a different story entirely. At Peterborough they strategically sat me with people they knew I’d learn from, knew I’d stay in contact with. And, they were right, all of this happened. Even more happened than that. Over the course of 12 months I shot up like a beanstalk utilising the contacts Jo and Rach had enabled me to make. Then there was Leeds, I was late getting in due to an oversight in my part, but in I got (I think with a wave of Jo and Rachel’s magic wands). Leeds. Leeds. Leeds. Gone was the boy with a few boards and laminates. Hey presto. Cue the man with six paper back novels, with professional swag to boot; BJAR (before Jo and Rach) I didn’t even know what swag was. I was gushing with pride for my book covers and swag designs, which I wouldn’t have if Jo and Rach had not placed me next to the amazing Samantha Fontien at Peterborough last year, it was her cover artist I used, you see. I sold fifteen novels at Leeds and was on fire with confidence, something I wouldn’t have had was it not for Jo and Rach.
Thank you ladies for having the courage, dedication, patience and talent you have to be able to have created hourglass. Truly the most wonderful and the best Godsisters any cinder-fella (that’s me) could wish for.
If you’re an author you need hourglass in your life, seriously. No, I mean seriously, you do.

Georgina Hannan– Jo & Rachel at Hourglass are gorgeous! The Leeds Author Event 2016 was a huge success!
They were there every step of the way from silly repeated questions before the event to the ball at the end. They were meticulous with details and I was happy to meet them. Here’s to many more!


Samantha Fontien~ I love Hourglass Events. Having attended my second signing with them as an attending author, I can honestly say they cater for every-bodies needs including mine health-wise. Jo & Rachel are amazing ladies and I would go to an opening of an envelope for them, 5 star service from them as always, roll on their next event… I can’t wait!!

Anna-Maria Athanasiou ~The Hourglass team are the dream team! Extremely well organised, pleasant and helpful. Leeds Author Event 2016 was an incredible experience, thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended and took part. For my first signing event the bar has been set very high! Thank you Jo and Rachel!


Laura Morgan ~An amazing events company, full of helpful ladies who went above and beyond for a recent event i was signing at in Leeds. They made the day far less stressful x

Jodie Scott ~Absolutely fantastic organisation skills. I had the honour of attending the event in Leeds and had such a good day! Thank you to all involved.
Francessca Webster ~ Attended Leeds today they truly went out there way to ensure not only were authors looked after but the readers too! Amazing day!
Victoria L. James ~ Jo and Rachel are the business! Love Hourglass, and the Leeds Author Event 2016 could not have been better than it was.

David E. Gordon Author ~ It was an amazing event. Very well organized. The masquerade ball was fabulously fun as well.
