My Panel At Mancunicon (Eastercon 2016)

As well as having a stall in the trade hall to sell by books Game Night and If Pigs Could Fly, I am appearing on a panel at Eastercon on the subject of self-publishing. Hopefully, I’ll have something reasonably sensible and informative to say, on what not to do, if not necessarily on what to […]
