Indie Authors Cafe

Join us on the last Sunday of the month in Waterstones, Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, for the Indie Authors Cafe from 1pm – 3pm. This Indie Authors World event is open to anyone to attend and is FREE. Any author who publishes with us will get a chance to appear as a guest at this event.

Our Indie Author World events are here to inspire, motivate, educate and entertain you.

These events will give you the chance to meet our authors, find out more about their books and their top tips for successful self publishing. Ask questions and learn more about publishing, marketing books and sales.

In the first hour we will interview two authors about their books, getting the low down on where they get their ideas and inspiration, how they keep them going through the tough days and and their top tips for encouraging other writers.

The second hour is focused on publishing and marketing tips and what it takes to be an Indie Author. With time for questions and networking it’s a great way to make good connections.

We will also have occasional guests that professional Indies just couldn’t manage their business without. From editors and book designers to marketing and book selling experts we will be uncovering all the inside info from the experts.

Unable to attend? You can join us live on Facebook. We will be on air around 1pm.
