Have you always wanted to write a book but just haven’t got the idea off the ground?

How to Self-publish for Authors
A programme of 4 one-hour sessions covering the following topics:

- Author platform (Website, social media and mailing list)
- How to gain visibility for your book – free content, paid advertising, blogging & social media

These mentoring sessions are aimed at authors, creatives, or entrepreneurs who have a print ready manuscript and wish to go ahead and self-publish their titles.

Former BBC journalist, bookseller and magazine editor, Helena Halme holds an MSc in Marketing and an MA in Creative Writing. Full-time author and mentor, Helena also acts as Nordic Ambassador for The Alliance of Independent Authors and is a Fellow at CreateThinkDo.
Apart from writing stories set in her native Finland, Helena is addicted to Nordic Noir and dances to Abba songs when nobody’s watching.
Helena loves to share her experience in indie publishing with other authors and creatives.
I made a decision to get a mentor for myself, despite actually not being an Author – I had a feeling that Helena would be perfect for me. I’m a business woman in the digital industry, however, Helena has enlightened me, and opened up my eyes to opportunities to better myself, my journey and my skills in ways that I never expected. As a result of our regular mentoring sessions, I feel that I’ve managed to develop as a blogger and a storyteller, and transform my business communications into something engaging, interesting and emotional for others to read and relate to.

Helena’s vast knowledge of the publishing process gave me the confidence to complete a cookery book – something which I’d always dreamt of doing. Helena is helpful, kind and professional.
Here I am in conversation with fellow authors Andrew Smith and Stephen Marriott at Waterstones in London.
Helena is now Fellow of CreateThinkDo
