No excuse not to write…

There are two exciting book events taking place in Leicester this spring which will be well worth attending if you are interested in the publishing universe!

The first is a free event called States of Independence, which celebrates independent publishing and boasts seventy authors reading from their work, bookstalls and the opportunity to meet publishers and fellow readers and writers. It takes place on Saturday 16th March, 10.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., at the Clephan Building, De Montfort University, Oxford Street, Leicester LE1 5XY, and you can find out more at www.statesofindependence.co.uk.

The second is the Self-Publishing Conference, which takes place the following week on Sunday 13th March, at the University of Leicester, Stamford Court Conference Centre, between 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. You do have to book a place for this on the website at www.selfpublishingconference.org.uk, and it costs £45, but you get the chance to meet key people in the self-publishing world and find out more about this new phenomenon – if you write and are even slightly curious about the self-publishing route, I am sure that this will be a worthwhile investment!

Both events sound fascinating and a great way to meet other bibliofiends – so see you there!
