The Future of Publishing: 7 Things Authors Should Know

Indie Author Fringe

Once again this year, I participated in the Indie Author Fringe Fair, hosted by the Alliance of Independent Authors, on Friday, April 15.

My workshop (a recorded video) focuses on 7 things authors should know about the future of publishing

The Indie Author Fringe Fair is held in tandem with the London Book Fair, and is part of London Book & Screen Week. Many other successful authors and self-publishing experts also shared their knowledge and expertise, for free.
