Everybody's publishing journey is different; whether you are indie publishing your own work, trade published or a start-up publisher. In this session, chaired by Orna Ross, we’ll be tackling the dos and don’ts of indie-publishing, discussing the indie-publishing journey of two authors who have had different publishing journeys, but with equalled success. On the panel we will have Christine Webber, author of Who’d Have Thought It?, and Tobias Harwood-Smith, author of Great Traits, to share their insights on how they published; what they published; and why they decided to go down the indie-publishing route. Also on the panel will be Rebecca Souster from Clays, to offer advice on the practicalities of publishing including ISBN’s, production, print and distribution.
