Self Publishing Conference.

If you are in London, or live nearby, I would highly recommend this forthcoming conference on Self Publishing to be held in King’s College, The Strand, on 9th November. One of the organisers is my own Publisher and I have nothing but praise for him. (If he can put up with me, then he might do wonders for you)

Since I posted notice of this on Face Book, Friday 11th October, I have already read criticism of the panel selected to offer advice to aspiring writers, from those who have never been to such a thing. I attended this conference last year, and it was not the professionalism of the experts that amazed me, but the antagonism and stupidity of some of the audience. One ‘writer’ asked this question.

“I paid to have my book published, but it’s not become a best seller. Why is that?”

Publishers, printers, agents, publicists, editors and all the others that spoke from the podium, are business people, they earn money from books and writers. Writers provide the material. Writers can go their own way, without the assistance of these experts, and this point was heavily stressed however, it can be easier working alongside each other.
This I personally have found out.
I now have a traditional agreement with one of the organisers of this summit, and I’m delighted that I paid for The Desolate Garden to be published.
Once again, I can wholeheartedly recommend your attendance of this meeting. You may find it changes how you think.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
