Murder, Mayhem and Indie Publishing

November 19 | 19:00 - 21:00

Dalmuir Adults Panel Event / Author Reading Crime

Ever wondered if you could make it as an author? The internet, Amazon, Kobo, iBooks and more have made it ridiculously easy to self-publish, and the quality of books available in this sphere is better than ever, thanks to the wide range of self-publishing services now available. Self-published authors Emma Baird and Caron Allan discuss Caron's books, and her writing and publishing process from start to finish. Do you need beta readers? And what are beta readers, anyway? How do you typeset a book? What options are there for printing? What's the best way to edit your work, and what free online tools are available for authors? Caron Allan is the author of the Friendship Can Be Murder trilogy and the Dottie Manderson mysteries. Her latest book, Scotch Mist, came out this year, and The Last Perfect Summer of Richard Dawlish is scheduled for publication in November. Caron published her first book in 2012, and her books have gone on to sell tens of thousands of copies and provide her with a full-time income. Emma Baird is a freelance copywriter and has three books to her name - Katie and the Deelans, The Diabetes Diet and The Girl Who Swapped.
