I'm looking forward to this year's London Book Fair. I haven't studied the programme yet, but it's always good. This year it runs from the 10th to the 12th of April, at Olympia, London.
Some years ago I promised myself that one of these years I would be part of a panel talking about my Amazon self-publishing success. I haven't reached that stage yet, but I have reached the point of having published a Kindle book, and being about to bring out a paperback version of it and, hopefully soon, an audiobook version.
The point is, it was the LBF that inspired me to get on with it. I always find, especially if my despondency and self-doubt indexes start to rise, that a visit to the LBF gives me the boost (aka kick up the backside) I need.

The London Book Fair is on this week. If you're a self-published author, or hoping to be, here are three seminars you may wish to attend today. They are concerned with self-publishing, research and copyright issues, and the creative writing process.
Alongside the London Book Fair is the What Works education conference. As you may have surmised from its proximity to the LBF, it focuses on educational publishing.
The registration desks for the London Book Fair 2017 are now open! In this article I discuss what I get out of it, and why I go every year -- and how that relates to my recent foray into Kindle self-publishing. And details of the Fair itself of course!
