“BookMachine is THE hub for publishing professionals. From well-planned courses to a wealth of fantastic online resources there’s nothing else quite like it” Lyndsey Mayhew Associate Director at The Book Publicist

From 14:45 – 15:15 BST (just before the drinks event), you can also hear from BookMachine Co-Founder and Director, Laura Summers, as part of Fair’s seminar programme. During the session, find out more about creating successful influencer marketing campaigns for your books and products. Learn how to build healthy relationships with the right creators for your publications, as well as how to navigate the algorithms, to help you convert views into sales.
