Becoming An Author TalkI am available for public speaking events on being a children’s author and also on the art of self-publishing. Whilst I specialise in publishing for children, the material that I cover in my talks is just as applicable to adult fiction, non-fiction, writing your memoirs or whatever else you may be interested in opening up to a wider audience.

I am passionate about sharing the message of how modern technologies throw open the possibility for us all to communicate our ideas and I love the opportunity of empowering others to do so.

The art of self-publishing

Below is an example of a presentation that I gave to the Goudhurst and District University of the Third Age, in November 2015, which was extremely well received.

Feedback Received

Andrew spoke to our U3A in November 2015 about his experience of self-publishing and our members found his talk both illuminating and stimulating. He talked us through the wide variety of skills that he had acquired in order to achieve publication of his books and, whilst encouraging those who had ambitions to self-publish, made clear the pitfalls that could occur. All-in-all, Andrew gave a highly interesting talk in a clear and humorous manner and was happy to answer a wide variety of questions from our members.Paul Griffin, Speaker Organiser, Goudhurst & District U3A
