Events for writers and illustrators

NZ Book Festival 2017

BigWords-Books was back at the 2017 NZ Book Festival on Saturday 11 November, and what an event it was for those who attended! The festival marked it’s fourth year with more books on the author stalls, insights and deals to be had through publishing service representatives, fun kids zone activities, goodie bags packed with free stuff and other great giveaways.

BigWords-Books’ Fiona Cole made herself available to answer questions about the indie publishing process and was inundated with people signing up for her free 15 minute consults held throughout the day.
