Recently the London Book Fair (LBF) took place and it was good to see pictures from writers who were attending.
It also means that the Alliance of Independent Authors will be holding their spring online conference.
This past weekend it was #SelfPubCon2019 and I spent much of Saturday at my computer with my earphones on and my notebook and pen to hand.
(Having previously signed up to the conference (free), but it could be signed up to that day.)
There were links to the various sessions (24 of them) some were panels recorded live at the LBF earlier this month, others were audio presentations or with video on YouTube.
You'll find links to the various sessions on the ALLi Facebook page and Twitter account, but they'll only be available publicly for a short time.
There were some valuable insights into marketing, being more productive and especially interesting were the Going Wide sessions- there's value in the global market. Lots of opportunities for the self-published writers.
I spent Sunday morning catching up on the sessions that were released overnight in the UK.
For anyone who is or intends to self-publish it is worth looking at membership of ALLi.
It's on my to do list before I publish my novel.
Meanwhile there's just one more session to catch up on; spreadsheets...author data...
Have you taken part in an online conference before? If you have, what were the high points for you? If you haven't, what discourages you?
