The BookBlast® celebration of independent publishing was kicked off online via the BookBlast Diary in 2016 to showcase daring, risk-taking small publishers who fill a unique niche discovering talent, publishing authentic and offbeat books which add value to the cultural landscape.
We are now going out into the real world and 9 regions of England this Autumn with THE BOOKBLAST® 10×10 TOUR 2018 in association with Waterstones.
The tour connects London and the regions and showcases some of the finest independent-spirited literature and poetry being published today.
Why not show your support for small independent publishers, writers and translators? Please spread the word and back us! Pledge, enjoy the giveaways, and spread the word at our KICKSTARTER campaign HERE
Come to the first tour event on 11 September at 6.30pm in Waterstones, Gower Street, or to one of the 9 regional talks! We have lots of goodies and tickets to #giveaway so visit us and let everyone know how much you love to support #crowdfunding great new writing and ideas.
The BookBlast® 10×10 Tour is about extraordinary writing inspiring readers to explore what’s happening in the world now. Audiences will encounter writers from the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, up-and-coming British talent.
Waterstones may be a nationwide chain, but is clearly awake to the potential of small independent publishers and showcasing them to a high-street audience.
I look forward to seeing you all on the campaign trail and at a 10×10 Tour event in the Autumn. Ciao for now! G@BB
