It's with great excitement that we're putting the latest touches to our latest seminar, aimed at indie writers who have published or are completing books and are wondering how to get them disseminated into the wider world beyond friends and family. Distribution is the biggest stumbling block in the way of reaching readers, but times are a-changing so we've called on some of those in the industry to give us some hints.
We'll have the acquisitions team from Auckland Libraries, a book buyer for bookstores, a couple of bookstore owners, and representation from the NZ Society of Authors. They should be able to answer some pertinent questions about how to get indie books into libraries and shops!
The seminar is open to all, with a $5 entry fee. There will be tea, coffee and nibbles at half time. Kick-off is at 10am, this MONDAY 16 MARCH, upstairs at the Browns Bay RSA.
We look forward to meeting more local writers and sharing useful information as widely as possible.
Hope to see you there!
(Now we just have to cross fingers that Cyclone Pam doesn't blow the East Coast off the map over the weekend!)
