What we're about

This is a London group primarily for indie (independant, self-published) authors - though marketing-focused trad-pub authors are also welcome. We meet the first Tuesday of the month from 6:30-8 near Piccadilly Circus. In our meetings we discuss how best to market our books, by:

• sharing marketing plans and reports

• critiquing blurbs/titles/covers

• sharing the latest marketing tips/knowhow

The charge is 1 pound to cover Meetup hosting and occasional printing costs.

Each session has an agenda with 3 30-minute slots - if you'd like to suggest a topic/request a critique/offer your findings for a slot, you should first attend a session, then feel free to suggest your idea to the organizers for the next time.

Our members cover a wide range of ages, expertise levels and genres - with full-time and part-time authors writing non-fiction, romance, historical, thrillers, literary, detective, chick-lit, sf & fantasy and more.

(The group follows a strict ethical/Amazon Terms of Service code. No review swaps, review buying, book spamming, stuffing, scamming or black hat tactics of any kind.)

Welcome! We look forward to meeting you.
