Join me (and hopefully others) at this very exciting event for writers and authors. The clever people behind Authoright have developed an amazing one day conference of seminars and panel events to provide information, motivation and direction. They have assembled a mega-list of authors, agents and publishers involved, including:
• Patrick Brown, Director of Author Marketing | Goodreads
• Diego Marano | Kobo Writing Life
• Porter Anderson | Journalist, Publishing Perspectives
• Ben Galley, ShelfHelp | Self Publishing
• and many, many more!
Will you be able to join us? If there are enough of us, I'll happily get a special LWC session added into the day's program. Whoop! You can RSVP to this meetup for free but please book your ticket via LondonAuthorFair.com
Please use 'LAFLWC' to get £20 off your ticket so I know who's in from our group. Thanks a million!
