How to publish and sell your book at Indie Authors Cafe
• What we'll do Our Indie Author World events are here to inspire, motivate, educate and entertain you. These events will give you the chance to meet our authors, find out more about their books and their top tips for successful self publishing. Ask questions and learn more about publishing, marketing books and sales. In the first hour we will interview two authors about their books, getting the low down on where they get their ideas and inspiration, how they keep them going through the tough days and and their top tips for encouraging other writers. The second hour is focused on publishing and marketing tips and what it takes to be an Indie Author. With time for questions and networking it's a great way to make good connections. We will also have occasional guests that professional Indies just couldn't manage their business without. From editors and book designers to marketing and book selling experts we will be uncovering all the inside info from the experts. Check each of the monthly listings to see who our author speakers and guests are. August Author Speakers are - Chris Tait - Author of the amazing book Diablo, the fantastical adventures of an unloved chess piece. - Join Chris and delve into Diablo - a book like no other. In a style that is inspired by everything from Lewis Carroll to Monty Python - with a few weird stops in between - it follows his adventures through a wacky fantasy landscape. The words are accompanied by a variety of images to help illustrate the depth and breadth of Chris’s unique storytelling. Kim Macleod - Author of From Heartbreak to Happiness and co-founder of Indie Author's World. Kim faced a huge loss and challenge in her life and decided that creating a happier world was the answer.

What we're about

If you are interested in being an Independent Author and self-publishing then come along. We welcome anyone whether you have already published some work, have a book or two ready or are working through a book at the moment.

We are Sinclair and Kim Macleod and together we bring a wealth of practical self-publishing experience with 8 of our own books, 130,000 book sales. We developed Indie Authors World after so many writers asked for help and have now published 85 books of all genres for other writers. We have learned a lot about publishing and love to share our experience and encourage others to take the leap and self-publish.

The Indie Authors group will provide practical advice, support and motivation for authors. The group offers monthly meetups with a key practical theme, expert sessions, motivation tips and problem solving. We have sessions on editing, fomatting, publishing formats, social media, marketing and selling. Where possible we hope to invite some experts along to share their wisdom too.

The focus of meetups are positive and encouraging to ensure that authors can benefit from the group, share best practice and network with others. The Indie Authors group offer opportunites for joint marketing, promotions and events to assist members with marketing and selling their books.
