The Self-Publishing Experience

Our next Experience Days are on 28th September 2016 and 25th January 2017.

If you’re an author considering self-publishing your work, finding out how to go about it, what can realistically be achieved and what your options are can be a daunting prospect. So from the UK’s most widely-recommended self-publishing services providers comes ‘The Self-Publishing Experience Day – From Manuscript to Market’ – a day spent with staff from Matador (Troubador Publishing’s self-publishing imprint), The Book Guild and Indie-Go (both Troubador companies).

The day also features guest speakers. The Self-Publishing Experience will be held at Troubador Publishing’s office in Leicestershire. The day looks at all aspects of publishing a book or ebook: from editing the manuscript to cover design; print on demand to digital printing; distributing and marketing… and much, much more. The day will include talks and interactive workshops covering all areas of self-publishing, as well as a tour of Troubador’s distribution and warehouse facilities. If you’re considering self-publishing as an option for your own work and want to find out more, the Self-Publishing Experience could be for you.

Our aim is to demystify the self-publishing process, explain what your options are as a self-publisher, look realistically at what you can expect from self-publishing and demonstrate the processes involved in putting a book or ebook together. The day is designed to be an informal look at all aspects of the publishing, distribution and marketing processes. The involvement of participants is actively encouraged, and there will be ample time to ask questions and for discussion.

At the end of the day, we hope you will have a far better understanding of what a commitment self-publishing can be, and an appreciation of the freedom and excitement that self-publishing brings with it. The Experience Days are not aimed at current Matador and Book Guild authors, who should arrange meetings with staff as required.
