The British Are Coming … to the London Book Fair, March 14-16!

Tens of thousands of authors, editors, agents, booksellers and other literary industry pros will be converging on London March 14-16 for the annual London Book Fair. Since 1971, the Fair has served as a global marketplace where attendees exhibit, network and negotiate for rights and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels.

So, why should you care? Because it’s one of the largest literary gatherings in the world … and because Outskirts Press could help you be part of it!

This year, an estimated 25,000 fairgoers from 124 countries will gather in Olympia, West London, to showcase their books before attendees from all corners of the globe and gain valuable exposure. It’s the largest and most popular industry book fair and publishing event in the UK—a place where authors can put their works before legions of fans (and potential fans) and make inroads with powerful industry players. Each year, Outskirts Press represents its self-published authors at the fair, gaining priceless exposure and gathering valuable industry leads.

When you arrange exhibition at the London Book Fair through Outskirts Press, you get the benefit of personal representation without having to book an expensive flight and navigate leads on your own. With our help, authors receive:

  • highly visible, front-facing shelf space with only four Outskirts Press books
  • an Outskirts Press representative who will personally advocate for your book with industry players, and answer vital questions
  • industry leads gathered on your behalf and forwarded directly to you for personal follow-up
  • a full post-fair report with all leads, pictures and a summary of the happenings

It’s a cost-effective way to give your book a huge international marketing boost, without leaving the comfort of your own home! While it’s too late to get involved in the 2017 London Book Fair, Outskirts Press can make sure you’re represented at next year’s event to get the most benefit from every exciting lead!

So, think ahead to 2018 and take your book global at the next London Book Fair with representation from Outskirts Press. Space is limited, so reserve your spot!
