BookExpo America has gone a long way toward embracing self-published writers. On the eve of the Expo the Javits center played host to UPublishU, a day-long conference for self-published writers. And there was no shortage of self-published outliers telling their stories on panels and in other presentations. London too featured several notable indie authors. So, with the grand daddy of all book fairs — the Frankfurt Book Fair — looming next on the global publishing calendar, how should the event work to include self-published and indie authors into the mix? What type of events would you like to see? Foreign rights meet-and-greets with publishers and agents? A pitch slam for global authors? And, if there were enough events on the agenda, would you indie author, come?
