Small Press Network Independent Publishing Conference

This is just a quick post to say that the Small Press Network Independent Publishing Conference is fast approaching. It’s a terrific event over four days, catering to different types of experience and interests.

It’s my pleasure to say that I’ll be doing the keynote on the Fundamentals Day (Saturday 12th November). If you can quite make out the writing in the image it says about the day:

An excellent introduction for newer publishers and a refresher for more established publishers, this day is core for anyone wanting to get a better understanding of the challenges of working in the Australian publishing industry.

If you’ve been thinking about getting into the book world, you’ll learn the basics of setting up a business, legal basics, business planning, funding, promotion, platforms and more. It’s very affordable and I’d love to see you there – come say hi! I’m excited!
