London Book Fair and Book Readings

21st Apr, 2022

It has been a while since my last blog post. This is because I have been extremely busy! I was in London for the London Book Fair courtesy of the Alliance of Independent Authors( ALLi). I attended the fair on all 3 days(5th-7th April). For the rest of my stay in London, I did book readings at The Forest Hill Library, Roehampton Library, Greenwich Centre Library and at Lea Bridge Library.

Getting around London was a breeze as the Public Transport system is organized in a way that as long as you follow the correct directions, you will definitely find the place you are looking for.

The experience of attending the London Book Fair was fantastic and I attended various seminars and learned new things, one of which was to add Tik Tok to my marketing strategies. I was under the impression that Tik Tok was for little kids and had no idea that many adults are on this social media platform. I am enjoying uploading videos and using the tips that I got from the seminar.

I also met several authors and displayed my books at the ALLi stand.

At one of my readings, I had a nice surprise as a friend from Zambia came through with his 7-year-old daughter. I had not seen him for 20 years so catching up with him was great.

My flight stopped over in Qatar, the host nation of this year's World Cup. I was very impressed by the airport as well as the friendliness of each member of staff. The heat was another thing though, when we landed there at 10 pm the temperature was 28 degrees Celcius/ 82.4 degrees Fahrenheit.

All in all, it was a very productive trip since I also got to spend time with my family in London. I will definitely be making my way there next year!
