Can you make money from Blogging?  Yes you can!

Author, book coach and editor Michelle Gent has developed an  interesting and novel way to build a following, promote her books and make money at the same time. If you thought that Blogging was a waste of time – think again!
Having had a live link to New York with Jill, Michelle will be speaking live from the international metropolis that is Nottingham!  Yes, the world comes to AuthorCraft.

Wendy Yorke

Wendy is an editor, author, book coach and literary agent. She travels internationally giving expert talks and promoting her authors. At AuthorCraft she has been conducting a series of expert sessions on getting your manuscript to be the best it can be – and highlighting the things that so many authors miss.  Wendy will also be taking part in our expert panel Q&A session. Come with questions at the ready!


We hold regular AuthorShowcase events in London. Author Showcase events take place midweek between 6.30pm and 9pm. The evening is focused on recognising authors who are either launching their book, are are promoting an existing title. Wine and soft drinks are served and books are on sale.  Door tickets for everyone are £10 per head and are available through Eventbrite.  Unless otherwise specified, all the events take place in the Lower Ground events area.

PLEASE NOTE – the book launch events are separate and in addition to our regular AuthorCraft Academy training events in the Institute  of Directors, 116 Pall Mall, which take place on the fourth Tuesday of the month, every month except August and December.
