A change of scene can be reinvigorating, and I had the opportunity to experience a totally different setting for a few days.

I swapped my quiet room, and the tranquil, rolling hills of Devon for the fast-paced hurly burly of London so that I could attend the Self Publishing Show Live. This event has become the largest conference for independent authors in Europe, and I had a whale of a time. The talks, given by a variety of well-known authors, were inspiring, but the part I really enjoyed was meeting and hanging out with other authors. We writers spend most of our time scribbling away on our own, so it’s always rewarding to chat with others who share that experience.

It was a jam-packed couple of days, and very enjoyable, but I was exhausted by the end of it. I was certainly glad to get home.

Maybe next year, I’ll be on that stage, explaining how my books became bestsellers. Ah well, a chap can dream.

Here are a few pics from my trip. I hope you like them, and if you’re a member of the site, please feel free to post in the comments, and if you’re not a member, please consider joining. It’s free and fast, easy and fun.
