The London Book Fair kicks off next Monday and is a great place to learn more about the publishing industry with free seminars and lots of publishers present. For published writers and those wishing to be published it's a good way to research the market and find out who is who. You can pick up new ideas at the fair, make new contacts, check out what kind of titles publishers are publishing and network with other authors, and those in the book business.
My Marine Mystery crime novels and my thrillers
will be on show at The London Book Fair
on stand J205 so if you're going to the London Book Fair do take time to come and say 'hello'. I will be there on Monday 20 April and Tuesday 21 April. I've got some appointments lined up but if I'm not around you can always browse the books and pick up a leaflet or two. You can even pinch a sweet! My business book publisher, Crimson, will also be at the Fair on Stand J250.
I'm looking forward to meeting my overseas literary agents and my publishers and hopefully making many new contacts.
