Join bestselling author Nicola May, and veteran publisher Scott Pack, as they discuss the pros and cons of self-publishing your work compared to life as a traditionally published author. Nicola and Scott have had books published through both channels and promise to be very indiscreet, and reveal some trade secrets, in this frank and open conversation.

Nicola May is a rom-com superstar. She is the author of sixteen romantic comedies, all of which have appeared in the Kindle bestseller charts. Two of them won awards at the Festival of Romance, and another was named ebook of the week in The Sun. The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay became the best-selling Kindle book in the UK, across all genres, in January 2019, and was Amazon’s third-bestselling novel in that year. Described by Winifred Robinson of BBC Radio 4’s You and Yours as ‘the invisible bestselling author’, Nicola campaigned successfully for the introduction of ebook charts in the publishing trade press.
