This is London Book Fair month
It’s one of the world’s major book events and will set what we’ll be reading and reading about for the next several months.
A number of self-published writers have shared their experiences of going there. It sounds scary and tiring. I wish anyone who is going the best of luck with whatever they are trying to achieve. If anyone does go, I’d love to hear about it.
There’s a programme of events, and this year one of them is called Digital Minds Conference. As I’m working towards e-publishing one of my books, it seems interesting, but is probably more in depth than I’ll ever need or want. It’s aimed at those seriously operating within the industry, with talks on business models for the digital age, changing roles of agents, authors et al, predictions of consumer spending and similar.
Looking at this conference and other seminar titles, I’m reminded that more goes on in the world of publishing than readers are usually aware of.
