Every year, self-publishing platform and book community, CompletelyNovel, offers ten writers the chance to launch their books collaboratively at the One Big Book Launch. The author selection process means that the opportunity is given to both traditionally and self-published authors to launch for their book with an event, when they might not otherwise be able to.
Held at the Free Word Centre and hosted by Completely Novel’s own Sarah Jukes and BookMachine‘s Laura Summers, it was a lovely evening, with readings from the ten chosen authors and a chance to talk to them all and buy their books. It was wonderful to see collaboration between authors and publishers for such a big event, and I hope I get the chance to attend again next year.
