Launching in 4 months…

April 12, 2013

IMGP2809Summer still seems a long way off, doesn’t it. But we’re not letting the grass grow beneath our feet here. If only grass would start growing… April 12th and still in the grips of winter.  But in just four months we’ll all be having a great time at the 2nd Edinburgh eBook Festival (virtually online) and we hope you’ll be there with us too.

It doesn’t matter where in the world you are or what time zone you are in – this is the festival that comes to you. FREE. For two whole weeks as long as you have wifi access to an ereader, tablet, smartphone or are hooked up to some form of computer, you can BE in two places at one time. You can visit as many events as you like and stay all day or just drop by from time to time.

We’re working hard getting the programme together.   This years theme is BEYOND THE MARGINS which should leave plenty of scope for the creative imagination to work with.

This year the festival is being ‘opened’ by Stuart Ayris whose Frugality Trilogy will be complete and ready for launching on the world with the publication of ‘I Woke Up This Morning.’ 

And we’ll end with Peter Tarnofsky’s ‘Everything Turns out all just fine’ the follow up to last years amazing short story collection ‘They All Die at the End.’

And in between these two events we will have over 50 authors and 100 or so more chances for you to read, see and enjoy some of what we rate as the most interesting things happening in ebook publishing BEYOND THE MARGINS.

There are workshops, residencies, polemic on markets, drama, author chats and much much more.  Authors as diverse as Bill Kirton, Chris Longmuir, Dan Holloway, Brendan Gisby, Roz Morris,  Jian Qiu Huang, Kathleen Jones, Mari Biella, Susan Price, Jo Carroll, Mark Frankland and many more will be taking part.  So be sure to bookmark the site and prepare yourself for two weeks of a whole new kind of festival. We look forward to seeing you.

We’ll post another update on a monthly basis right up till the Festival happens itself. Just in case you forget!
