Today, 10 a.m. ? Room Dimension, Level 4.2 14 18th October 2019


In the early days of the self-publishing revolution, indie authors were something of a trade book fair poor relation. Yes, a growing part of the books ecosphere, but outside the pale of the traditional industry. Plus— and this may be the nub—how could fairs best monetise self-publishers, as they tend to be single authors who are not going to rent stand space? That has changed in recent years as self-publishing has professional- ised, the lines between traditional and self-publishing have blurred, and more companies and services have launched to cater to their needs. This is part of why Frankfurt has rebooted its indie authors strand, which had heretofore been largely consigned to the weekend and geared towards the German market. The new Frankfurt Authors strand is to be more internationally focused, with its set-piece today’s Frankfurt Authors Conference. The big draw for the conference is the German novelist and journalist Melanie Raabe, most famous in the English-speaking world for 2016’s The Trap.
