Independent Bookshop Opens Doors to Independent Authors

Foyles Charing Cross Road to Host Indie Author Fair 2015

Foyles on London’s Charing Cross Road, is playing host to The Indie Author Fair (IAF) on Friday 17th April 2015. Part of the London Book Fair Indie Author Fringe Festival, run by The Alliance of Independent Authors/Indie ReCon, the fair is organised by Triskele Books and sponsored by XPO North.

After the success of IAF 2014 at Chorleywood Literary Festival, the event has grown to include over fifty authors who represent the best in independent author-publishing.

Organiser Catriona Troth said, “The Indie Author Fair is an unmissable event for readers, writers, publishers and observers of the publishing scene, providing an opportunity to meet the best indie authors in the business, meet suppliers, talk to experts and discover great new books.”

ALLi badge   “Bringing writers and readers closer together is a core part of ALLi’s mission,” said Orna Ross, Director of ALLi (Alliance of Independent Authors). “We are delighted that the Indie Author Fair will showcase the talent and enterprise of so many ALLi members at Foyles, London’s largest indie bookstore, with the support of London Book Fair’s Book and Screen Week, and look forward to fostering new author-reader bonds at the fair.”




In fact, many of the authors I have interviewed for my blog will be attending, with good representation from team Outside the Box: Women Writing Women.

Available until 24th May only, when it’s gone, it’s gone.
