‘Meet the Booksellers’ at our October Members’ Night

An opportunity for prospective self-publishing authors to ask questions

Dianne Woodhouse from Ballarat Books

and

Tracey Willersdorf from Collins Booksellers on Lydiard

The Ballarat booksellers will be interviewed by Heather Roche, self-published author and BWI member, followed by a Q&A session for members.

Dianne and Tracey will talk about what sells, presentation, book covers and what they (the booksellers) look for and expect, when a self-published author approaches them.

This is an excellent opportunity for BWI members, writers and friends to seek information regarding getting self-published books into bookstores.
