Tonight, I'll be hosting an evening at Waterstones in Westwood Cross, Ramsgate (UK) aimed at helping writers help themselves by spilling my knowledge of going it alone all across the floor. Topics on the table will include looking at all of your options, managing your expectations (your own and those of others), considering paperback and/or digital and looking at some tools of the trade that could help you. I'll also be talking about writing for magazines and more importantly - at least from where I'm standing - what you (the writer) are terming as 'successful' and whether that's the very thing holding you back.
There will be books on sale (mine as well as whatever the store have on the shelves) and there will also be coffee, which is the way I always pictured such an event so all is well.
Note: Caffè Nero will be open later than usual for us to take over their fine facilities.
