Authors & Self Publishing

  • Authors & Self Publishing

    There was plenty on offer at LBF 2014 for established and aspiring authors.

    A range of seminars and events took place both for, and featuring, authors as well as a dedicated sector of the show (PS @ Tech) that featured companies who provide publishing solutions to authors.

  • "I thought the Author HQ had a great programme this year. I was speaking to authors after the Fair and the general response was very positive"

  • Author HQ @ LBF

    Launched as a response to increasing interest from the self-publishing community, Author HQ @ LBF is always one of the most popular features at the Fair. This year the feature grew even bigger with a range of seminars and events, along with the introduction of The Write Stuff contest which offered aspiring writers the chance to pitch their book to a panel of agents.
