London Book Fair

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

March was a quiet month on the Lord of the Rams front after a relatively busy February in the UK during which a review of the book appeared in The Irish Post and an interview featured in The Irish World.

During April, Lord of the Rams will again be making its presence felt in the UK – this time at the London Book Fair. I don’t know too much about book fairs if truth be known – I’ve never attended one, but such events present another opportunity to market the book – albeit an expensive option, which may or may not prove worthwhile. Time will tell, I guess!

The London Book Fair is the second largest venue, after Frankfurt, for international rights trading, including translation rights, digital rights, and television and film rights. With over 25,000 members of the global publishing community all together under one roof for three days (20-22 April 2009), it certainly won’t do any harm to have the book at the event in some capacity. Let’s just hope someone spots it amongst the myriad of other books vying for attention at the event.

Given my other work commitments, I won’t be at the event in person. However, Lord of the Rams will be one of a number of books displayed by Trafford at the book fair (as part of the “New Title Showcase” exhibit).

So if you’re in London during the event, please do drop in – and tell them the Rams sent you!!
