‘The Self-Publishing Experience Day – From Manuscript to Market’, which will take place next month in Cornwall, will bring together the UK’s most widely-recommended self-publishing services provider, the UK’s only dedicated self-publishing magazine and one of the UK’s leading book printers to allow authors interested in self-publishing the opportunity to spend the day with staff from Matador, The Self Publishing Magazine and TJ International.
Held at TJ International’s factory in Padstow, Cornwall on Wednesday 17th September 2014, The Self-Publishing Experience Day looks at all aspects of publishing a book or ebook, which will help authors at any stage of their self-publishing journey. From editing to design, print on demand to digital printing, distribution to marketing – and much, much more – we’ll help you take your book from conception to the finished product.
The Self-Publishing Experience Day gives authors an in-depth insight into the different processes of self-publishing – the options that are available to them as a self-publisher, what to expect from self-publishing, and how to go about the various stages, as well as having the opportunity to see a demonstration of the processes that are involved in the creation of a book and ebook.
Held at TJ International’s print works and training suite in Padstow, The Self-Publishing Experience event promises a full day of interesting and enlightening seminars. The day itself is divided into sessions that each focus on the different aspects involved in self-publishing your book or ebook.
“I found today an excellent and pinteresting day,” comments a previous delegate, Douglas Burcham.
