UK, February 13, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- A wealth of British and European authors will be in attendance at AuthorCon UK 2014, the inaugural book fair to celebrate independent authors of all genres. This ground-breaking event, to be held on Saturday April 26th 2014 from 10am to 6pm at MadLab Manchester, is set to be one of the highest profile gatherings in the UK for both established and emerging writing talent. The event is also being backed by The Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards, which is rapidly becoming one of the high profile competitions for the writing community.
“AuthorCon UK is a fantastic opportunity for people to interact directly with independent award-winning and bestselling writers, purchase signed books and discover their next favourite author, “ explains K.C. Finn, Organiser of the event and an established author herself. “Apart from the book fair, there will also be a superb raffle with prizes including signed paperbacks and other great gifts. We also hope to offer entertainment throughout the day from authors and other literary groups from the local area.”
Whilst the event will be free to on-foot patrons on the day, tickets booked in advance offer guests extra opportunities such as guaranteed entry (if the venue is full at any point on-foot patrons will be asked to come back, whilst ticketed guests may come and go as they please), five free entries into the prize raffle and an AuthorCon UK goody bag upon arrival. Additional perks such as discounts and offers available to ticket-holders will be announced as they become available on the official AuthorCon UK website.
“The independent writing community is thriving at the moment and we have had a huge amount of interest from authors and readers –whatever you are into book-wise, you are sure to find something that appeals to you at AuthorCon UK,” assures K.C. Finn. “For example, there will be a children's section with some fabulous authors, illustrators and award-winners showcasing their work and offering reading sessions and activities for younger readers.”
For both authors and readers or indeed anyone with a keen interest in books, AuthorCon UK is surely set to become an unmissable highlight on the publishing world’s calendar.
