On Saturday we ran the Self-Publishing Advice Conference Spring 2020 — 24 sessions over 24 hours on the theme of boosting your author income. Sacha Black asks: have you registered and tuned in yet? If not, now is the time. The self-publishing advice conference is free for another 24 hours.
Have you been enjoying the Self-publishing Advice Conference Spring 2020?
With all the enforced isolation going on, it's the perfect time to binge-watch some of the 24 great sessions we've been airing on the conference website since Saturday morning.
Each Spring and Fall in association with the Alliance of Independent Authors, London Book Fair and, this year (we hope), Frankfurt Book Fair, we bring you this mammoth author education event online.
Run by authors for authors and completely free to you for three days.
This year, coronavirus precautions saw the London Book Fair canceled but we recorded the sessions that would have been live there and included them in our line-up.
And what a line-up!
