It’s great that Hertfordshire Libraries are acknowledging self-published authors – by holding a series of Self-Published Author Fairs in various public libraries.
The events are aimed at bringing self-published books, often unique, to the attention of readers who can purchase them directly from the authors, as well as educating potential writers about how to self-publish their own books.
I participated in one such event at Harpenden Library in March 2018 (that’s my author table pictured). Besides me, there was one other children’s author and four adult fiction and non-fiction authors. It was wonderful to see how well used the library is on Saturdays – with lots of children and adults visiting to read and borrow books.
I chatted to lots of interesting people, including children and their parents curious about the self-published books on sale, and would-be authors and illustrators, wanting to know more about the writing and self-publishing process.
If you’ve always want to write and publish a book, but don’t know where to start, I offer coaching / lessons / consultations on writing and self-publishing for children and adults. Find out more here.
