…How self-published authors are creating, publishing, marketing and selling their own titles successfully.

Join us during Social Media Week at The London Book Fair’s Tech Tuesday for an evening of discussion, drinks and networking, around the topic of self-publishing, sponsored by, and featuring Blurb – a leading end-to-end self-publishing platform. Once described as ‘vanity’ publishing and considered only for those unsuccessful in getting an agent or publishing contract, self-publishing is now a reputable and sustainable publishing model. It has also been described as the new ‘slush’ pile for publishers, and many successes have subsequently been offered generous contracts from traditional publishing firms.

Orna Ross, both self- and traditionally published author, and founder of the Alliance of Independent Authors, David Shelley, Publisher at Little, Brown, and Brenda Van Camp, CMO Blurb, and Andrew Crofts Author and Ghostwriter, will join the Director of The London Book Fair, Jacks Thomas, for a debate on the Rise and Rise of Self-Publishing.

Tech Tuesday is a meet-up designed to showcase what’s happening in the digital world of publishing, through relevant speakers, discussion and networking in a relaxed setting. As technology infuses every aspect of the creative industries, and the publishing business develops and thrives in the digital era, Tech Tuesday creates the perfect platform to discuss and share experiences.
