The Self-Publishing Conference - the perfect day out for budding authors

The clock is ticking if you still want to register for this one-day conference dedicated to everything related to self-publishing

 
PRLog - Jan. 22, 2013 - LEICESTSHIRE, U.K. -- Taking place on Sunday March 24, 2013 at the University of Leicester, the event is aimed at authors considering self-publishing. Sponsored by Smith Publicity, TJ International (Print), The Writers’ Workshop, Matador and The Self Publishing Magazine, it will bring together key figures in the self-publishing sector for the benefit of self-publishing authors.

‘The day has attracted lots of interest and many of the sessions are filling up quickly,’ observes Jane Rowland, Editor of The Self Publishing Magazine. ‘In some workshops we have only a few spaces left, so if you’re planning on coming along, then make sure you reserve your space before it’s too late.’

Speakers include: Ben Cameron (Smith Publicity), Clive Herbert (Nielsen BookData), Mick Rooney (The Independent Publishing Magazine), Harry Bingham (The Writers’ Workshop), Jeremy Thompson (Troubador Publishing), Helen Corner (Cornerstones), Orna Ross (Alliance of Independent Authors), Ian Hunter (TJ International Print Group), Aimee Fry (The AuthorWorks) and Jane Rowland (Editor, The Self Publishing Magazine).

The Conference offers sessions designed to bring new insights into self-publishing, while giving authors the chance to meet with other self-publishers and specialists in the field. There will also be a number of ‘Author Ambassadors’ on hand, people who have self-published by a variety of methods and who can offer advice and experience.

Self-publishing books and ebooks has come of age, but for many authors there is considerable confusion and a lack of understanding about what is involved, and how best to go about it. This new conference offers a unique opportunity to meet and interact with influential individuals and companies working within the sector. It is the perfect day out for authors thinking about, or already involved in, self-publishing. Whether they are going it alone or using a self-publishing company, the conference offers sessions on a variety of topics, allowing delegates to pick and choose the talks most relevant to their own project. Topics include:

HOW TO...
... get published in an increasingly competitive market
... work successfully with an editor
... choose a self-publishing service provider
... sell your book to libraries and retailers
... design a striking cover (includes a ‘cover clinic’)
... work successfully with your digital or offset printer
... get the best from a self-publishing service provider
... use bibliographic data to help drive sales of your book
... successfully e-publish and e-market
... use your author website and social media to market your work.

Conference Registration
