My theme: Writing and the business of writing
But, to reflect the rest of the publishing industry, even the London Book Fair is changing. These days there’s something called Author Lounge, with several events aimed at writers. Of course majority of these are companies selling digital publication and printing solutions to writers, biggest one being Amazon’s KDP, but there are also many seminars aimed to help us Indy writers produce and sell our books.
Alliance of Independent Writers (ALLi) is organising a series of events, including Kobo book presentations by ALLi authors, and a talks by Orna Ross and Joanna Penn on self-publishing. And there’s going to be ALLi’s 1st birthday party too! (I can’t wait!)
So, this year at the LFB, I will be a busy little bee, attending seminars, meeting many other ALLi authors. I even have a pitching slot with an agent. Wish me luck, I’ll be on around two o’clock tomorrow!
I will attempt some live blogging from LBF, so watch this space.
