Author’s take on pleasures and pitfalls of e-publishing
BERKSHIRE author Tim Walker will share his experience — and secrets — of e-publishing and self-publishing
BERKSHIRE author Tim Walker will share his experience — and secrets — of e-publishing and self-publishing later this month.
He will be giving a talk on the pleasures and pitfalls of the modern author’s life at The Barns at Southbrook, Hambleden, on Thursday, September 22, at 7.30pm.
With a background in newspaper publishing and degrees in communication studies and marketing, Tim is no stranger to the world of print.
A denizen of Datchet, the river Thames was the inspiration for his first book of 15 short stories, called Thames Valley Tales.
He has since published his first novel, Devil Gate Dawn, set 10 years in the future but very topical in this post-EU referendum era — depicting as it does an ageing King Charles shuffling the country through social upheaval, with George Osborne battling terrorists.
A short story by Tim called Murder at Henley Regatta was published in the anthology Fresh Ink.
His current project is an historical fiction series, A Light in the Dark Ages, based in England between AD 410 and 500. Abandoned, the first part of this series, is already published.
Tim will share his experiences of the mysterious world of self-publishing with fellow writers and throw light on the world of e-publishing with Amazon. He hopes that his experience and inside information will save would-be writers much in the way of potential heartache and headaches along the way.
His talk promises to be of special interest to writers, but his engaging manner and current writing interest mean that an evening with Tim Walker is a must for anyone who enjoys a good yarn and would like to learn more about his work.
Admission to Tim’s talk is £5, to include light refreshments. Attendees are asked to book tickets in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (01491) 579989.
Tim will have some of his books on sale on the night, which he will be happy to sign. For more information, visit www.timwalkerwrites.co.uk
