New_Shamrokon_Web_0

As some of you know this year Dublin is hosting Eurocon, named Shamrokon it going to be held from the 22rd to 24th of August. I have been invited to join three of the panels which are as follows:

 

Made In Ireland: Come To Ireland, We Have Tax Breaks

Friday 16:00 – 17:00, C. Ground Floor 1 (Double Tree by Hilton Dublin Burlington Road)

Learn all about Ireland’s tax exemption on income from works of cultural merit, and how this affects this careers of Irish residents.

 

Self Publishing: Career Progression Post Publishing

Saturday 21:00 – 22:00, E. Room 1/2 (Double Tree by Hilton Dublin Burlington Road)

“Next Steps in Self Publishing”
You’ve written the novel, designed a fantastic cover, and deciphered Amazon and Smashword’s Byzantine upload and tax instructions. Now what? Our panelists will debate the merits of multiple covers, writing in multiple genres, signing with The Big Five, POD, and series vs standalone

 

Self-publishing: Getting Feedback

Sunday 15:00 – 16:00, C. Ground Floor 1 (Double Tree by Hilton Dublin Burlington Road)

The differences between editing, beta reading & copyediting. Do our creators prefer The Compliment Sandwich or the Red Pen of Doom?

 

 

This will be my first time on panels so if you are there, then please be gentle!

 

PS details might be subject to change.

 

On a related note I’m also attending Loncon the weekend before – but only as an attendee.
